Pageviews from the past week

Monday, 13 September 2021

I found the document below in a senior Minister's waste paper basket..... " When Brexit has Wrecked it - this is what Britain will be like:



Britain will be more expensive – imported goods will cost more

Exports to EU will drop – EU customs duty will make them more expensive - with resultant unemployment here

Half of cars made in Britain go to the EU

Large amounts of paperwork needed by Britain's 250k small businesses to continue exporting to EU

Business says there will be mass redundancies

More expensive NHS – half of our medicines come from Europe; some are not made here – viz, insulin.

Hopefully EU citizens will be allowed to work in UK – otherwise NHS will flounder with 10,000 less staff

Lorry queues across the south of England – food going bad? Already 1.6 million truck crossings per the tunnel per annum.

PM has promised troops will fight food riots...

Long delays at airports – while we re-negotiate international airspace agreements.

Our Civil Service will spend £millions trying to build new trade agreements with 160 WTO countries

And to re-negotiate the 36 trade deals the EU has with others

Wage growth in UK cannot be expected to improve, when trade falls and import costs increase

Current UK financial situation –

National Debt £2.3 trillion owed  (2nd. largest in the world; USA is 1st.)

Bank balance £114 billion in the red.


Current trade with the world in £ billions:

EU £ 487 billion

USA 140

China 50

Aus/NZ/Can 26

Bra/Rus/Ind 43


Nobody is beating a path to our door.....and they know we need them more than they need us.
