Theresa May on the Brexit details a short while ago.


See if you're convinced.

Interesting paper on the impact of Brexit on UK exports in 2016.

(Firms entering EU export markets) in 2016 would have been 5.1% higher (and those exiting EU export markets) 3.0% lower if firms exporting from the UK to the EU had not faced increased trade policy uncertainty after June 2016.


This research deals only with 2016 - the year of the Brexit vote. It does not include data from 2017 and 2018 (in which uncertainty about future tariffs has increased further) nor does it take account of what is expected to happen after Brexit actually happens - when the tariff increases faced by exporters will be reality rather than just uncertainty.

It is significant, however, because Brexiteers have previously dismissed such predictions as speculative - whereas this paper uses hard data to show the mere uncertainty of higher tariffs has already started to have an impact as far back as 2016.
There will be no end to the problems afflicting mankind until economists become rulers, or, by some miracle, rulers become economists.

Will there actually be repercussions? I doubt it.

UK. 2018. Election fraud to a criminal standard. Dark advertising targeted using illegal data. Supine media owned by folks going long on gold in preparation for carnage induced.


So, no, no comeback at all you'd imagine. Will of the People, you see...
Let's go set London on fire.

Oh not all of it, obviously. A square mile of Westminster would be enough.

Yeah London was the unsung hero of the Brexit campaign. The reason the bank exit polls got the result wrong was because they took too much comfort from the London vote (must be close to a sixth the population of the UK?).

London reminds me of Sydney in terms of being a cosmopolitan and tolerant city. Surprised they don’t declare independence from the little Ingerlanders - they’d be a powerful state in their own right.

Some bloke on that thread has spent fuck know's how long trying to convince everyone that Turkey were actually 'joining the EU' during the campaign and that the Turkey ads werent a lie. He's continued to persevere despite folks from all over Europe calmly trying to explain that Turkey under Erdogan are about as close to joining the EU as Trumps USA. They applied in 1987 but have never been further from membership than.they are today.

How fucking stupid are the people who believe this shit?

Many peope are now in internet echo chambers and believe what they want to believe.

In that sense the internet has fundamentally failed in one of its original objectives.

Without over egging the pudding this site - because of the hands off approach of the mods (except AP on occasions :mrgreen:) is a better example of how the internet should be.

Say again, stockpiling blood.
This is moving into genuinely surreal territory.

Yeboah it someone will I suppose be along shortly to say this is all wrong but not offer any proof.
