A report produced by an academic and MP’s has confirmed that the reason Brexit is currently not a success is remainers. They are apparently holding the country back and not allowing us to fulfil our true potential. I suppose when one of the MP’s is IDS the report may be considered a little biased.

I can say first hand that the Conservative leaflets concentrated on Brexit and not much else. I hope that means that some are finally realising that they were lied to and are still to feel any benefits.

If you read the Governor of the Bank of England's recent assessment of UK's prospects of growth, it points quite sharply to the damning effects of Brexit.
Just as the rest of Europe will struggle with energy costs and supply issues, he says that due to leaving the EU and the huge drop in the value of the £, the UK will
have a longer and deeper recession.
No longer is he talking about "if" there will be one but only about it's magnitude.

Add to this the utter lack of strategy form the current government, who are too busy with self preservation and it looks like we may be in for a rough ride and that's before you consider the size of the national debt and rising interest rates which make that debt harder to manage.

Also, it seems like BJ are very appropriate initials for our PM.

Whilst there are lots of examples of areas where brexit is bad for us.
However for the sake of balance I feel that I should mention one of the benefits of brexit.

When you go to Europe on holiday you now have to have your passport stamped on entry and exit. This means that you can have passports full of stamps showing h the he countries you have visited . A nice way of saving memories of travelling .










Assuming that you can afford to travel and get through Dover

This is exactly what we voted for isn’t it. Control of our borders. Just goes to show how crap we are at doing it.

The exchange rate is a red herring - the pound vs euro is roughly in line with where it was at the time of exit - it is in fact strengthening. It looks like the Eu is very weak against both the £ and US$

I would agree about the lack of strategy though
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

If the French don't want the tourists to spend money with them they are going about it the right way
