    Should be close to breaking even in about 50 years time though.

    thought it fitted in line with my chain of thought considering we were told we were going to lose all our manufacturing base back in 2016 because of Brexit . In fact the manufacturing sector in many cases expect to grow especially if get over covid . Of course there will be winners and losers but at least I thought i'd share some good news god we need it after a year we've had

    I'm still waiting for the pound to crash , empty supermarket shelves, mass unemployment, shortages of drugs (oh hang on) ?

    Long way to go yet before we know its impact

    of course will take another 10 years before we feel the real impact whether it was worth it or not but in the mean time I get cheesed off when people pick up any bad economic news and point it at Brexit

    we are stuck with it whatever way you voted lets get on with it and try to make it a success . Shame Trump was ousted by the dark forces of the world he was sticking his neck out to bring manufacturing back to USA . If he got another 4 years there manufacturing economy would have boomed and we would have followed suit . China wins unfortunately keeping a stranglehold on growth in the world

    By "dark forces of the world" I presume you mean the US electorate who cast 7 million more votes for his opponent or the Electoral College that handed him a defeat by 74 electors. Unless you have evidence of the work of "dark forces" that hasn't been ridiculed by provable fact or in a court of law.

    Everyone indulges in wishful thinking if the party or cause they voted for failed to win. It is also legitimate to highlight the consequences of that vote just as it's fine to big up its perceived successes without either side needing to get "cheesed off"!

    Yeah he was really going to hit his stride on Jan 21st after 4 years of doing zip, wasn't he? So unfair, so unfair.

    And the UK just needed that to happen to turn everything around. Slim margins, eh?

    Good grief!

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics...ritable-status

    Leave campaigners have begun raising funds to open a Museum of Brexit after the long-awaited project was granted charitable status.

    The trustees are seeking to generate £400,000 to buy a home for the museum – possibly in a pro-Brexit town such as Dudley in the West Midlands – plus another £250,000 to set up the institution and a strategic financial reserve of £350,000.

    The project is being championed by prominent Brexiters who say they want to set up an institution that will tell the story of Britain’s departure from the EU “before items and stories get lost”.

    Although all those involved in the project are keen Brexit supporters and the museum has had no public endorsements from pro-Europeans, the trustees said they were only able to secure charitable status by persuading the Charity Commission that it would be neutral.

    so with the news of the UK emerging from covid in the construction and manufacturing arenas very strongly will the news of foreign workers heading back home in record numbers be a hindrance or will this see a trend in re skilling the local work force be the answer or be a threat to the UK economy ?

    It's an intresting debate as the impact of Covid is likely to increase unemployment, if foreign workers are heading home perhaps much needed jobs may appear for those needing it the most .

    found this regarding short and long term IMF growth for the UK and the world

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wk_rGfMy8O0

    sometimes i wonder how to take these figures when we are still in un chartered waters with covid but still far more encouraging for employment in the UK for the next 2 years if these figures prove to be right

    Not my words, but pretty apt in my opinion.

    "This country is the unhappiest I’ve ever known it. It’s won nothing. It’s lost. And it knows it but it can’t admit it. So it rages. It lies. It waves its flag. It demands loyalty. It craves respect. It gets neither. It turns on itself. It breaks itself apart in its anger."

    Boris Johnson endangers the fragile peace in Northern Ireland due to his narcissistic ego and lying.

    Who knew that would happen?

    Who knows.

    To recap, to resolve the Withdrawal Agreement and ensure no border infrastructure between the UK and the EU in Ireland, Theresa May said there were two choices, a backstop keeping us in the Single Market and Customs Union until an alternative could be developed or checks on goods and food products between GB and Northern Ireland.

    She said no UK Prime Minister could advocate the latter. The Conservative ERG rebels and Boris Johnson together with the DUP voted together to ensure the withdrawal deal failed and brought down May in the process.

    Johnson as Prime Minister negotiated a withdrawal deal which included GB/NI border checks. He visited NI during the election campaign and said that there would not be any checks. The DUP supported the deal.

    Johnson then negotiated the trade deal with the EU that confirmed these checks to ensure that non-compliant foodstuffs did not enter the EU via the border and goods did not evade any necessary customs tariffs or declarations. The DUP voted through the deal.

    The new processes started kicking into life, including. guess what, checks between GB and NI. Shortages of many products on NI supermarket shelves because of the new bureaucracy.

    The DUP cried this is not what we voted for or against. Loyalists started targeting customs infrastructure at Larne, threatening the people supposed to perform the checks. The DUP started a campaign to rip up the agreements made. People start taking to the streets. Johnson has gone to ground acting like it is nothing to do with him.

    Simple really!
