Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting

Vaati

Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

 

In addition to remoaner we are also not going to allow the use of libdums or liebore - if you cannot behave like adults and post without recourse to these childish insults then please refrain from posting. If you have a problem with this then you all know where the helpdesk is.

Overblown, certainly since GBP wasn't 2 USD before Brexit, but rubbish...

 

...nope :roll:

 

Sterling just hit a two year low against the Dollar on the back of post-Brexit trade tensions, and is predicted to continue dropping for the rest of the decade as a result... it will inevitably be having some consequence re: fuel prices.

All major Western currencies have reached recent lows against the mighty dollar.

 

British pound, Euro and Canadian dollar.

 

Can't blame the Euro low on Brexit  :)

 

But Putin's Ruble has taken off, thanks to the EU's dependency on Russian Oil and Gas Fossil Fuels.

 

The War Criminal Tyrant now has more money for more weapons, and more dead Ukrainians.

....somewhat undermining your pearl-clutching day job :thumbsup: :roll:

 

Weird, I don't see warnings of "post-Brexit trade tensions" being highlighted as reasons for most other currencies :?

6 years on from *that* vote, it is worth reminding ourselves what was promised to the electorate by Vote Leave…

 

…and letting readers compare and contrast those promises with what had been achieved.

More bias anti democratic nonsense.  I repeat Brexit is a long term project and it will take a number of years before the benefits of not paying into the EU budget are felt.  The implementation of Brexit cost billions more to implement than it would have done if our politicians had all respected the democratic choice the electorate had made and hadn't blocked Brexit for months before it was finally implemented. It needs the correct government polices to maximise the future benefits of Brexit and to be fair to the current government they have had many unforeseen and unprecedented issues to deal with since the UK officially left the EU.

Yes the fact that we weren't in the EU had nothing to do with the vaccine rollout. If we were still in the EU we could of done the rollout in the same way.

Don't do that - you know the little Englanders (aka Brexiteers) hate the use of facts!

‘What have we done?’: six years on, UK counts the cost of Brexit:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/jun/25/what-have-we-done-six-years-on-uk-counts-the-cost-of-brexit

We are not shipping anything like the amount we were. As a country, we were supposed to be out there trading with the world and yet nothing has happened except we have got a load more paperwork and we have lost lots of our business. It is completely bonkers.

Our growth stopped five years ago, 70% of our turnover was international before Brexit. It went from 70% to 50% to 30%. We would be twice the size we are now if it were not for Brexit.

The UK did it unabated.

Didn't the UK also buy an absolute ton of the AstraZeneca vaccine, only to find it causes issues with blood clotting?

 

Seems to have fallen out of favour, I wonder how much went un-used?

The yawn chorus of those who sleep walked into Brexit on the back of false promises and xenophobic hype of Farage.
