Philip Hammond should be on Mastermind. Specialised subject: 'The Bleedin' Obvious'.

Posted By: nikcnet

If and when members of the Cabinet leave their current day jobs, the opportunities for them in post-Brexit utopia must surely be unlimited ?

Posted By: nikcnet

Apart from being a contestant on 'Mastermind', Phillip Hammond's new career on TV could extend to hosting 'Deal or No Deal' !!!

As always, not a single fact in sight.
Let's look at the actual trade numbers to demonstrate how much sensationalism is being added regarding the EU FTA that the UK gets from remaining.
(Ignoring that there's no acknowledgement the UK will be fully aligned to EU regulations on 30th March 2019, as it was on 29th March 2019, the equal applies that the EU will still be fully aligned to UK regulations on the same dates)
- Total recorded 2017 exports to the EU was 10.45% of GDP (£274bn).
- 60% of exports were goods, which equate in value to *£164.4bn
- Let's be sensational and say the UK lose 10% of exports by leaving the EU, which is £16.5bn
- Take our £10bn cost pa of being a member of the EU away from the £16.5bn and we are left with £6.5bn
- £6.5bn is 0.25% of GDP (or less than the latest Q3 2018 growth).
*The £164bn number is believed to be distorted to the high side by an unknown amount of goods exported to non-EU countries via Rotterdam/Antwerp which are included in the EU export figure.
I could address a lot of Brexit posts like this. Particularly the like of WW's latest https://www.theneweuropean.co.uk/top-stories/mike-harding-response-to-theresa-may-brexit-letter-1-5796884 which has more factual holes in it than a collander. Let's not allow that to get in the way of Irish emotional rants though (I think that mine and my family's war history allows me to treat the moral high-standing with the contempt it deserves)
Why don't I repudiate more? Because to do so just provides a foil to those who've spent the last 29 months posting angry BS tirades on the subject (my respect here to Kwacka - who usually puts across his view reasonably and factually) and their one-liner sycophants.
Basically, you all can all just **** off and compete for smarty points with each other. I sincerely advise Clive, DAC, Geoff and others to ignore all the Remainer, sore-loser back-patting likewise and basically let the tw@ts get on with it.
I've never been optimistic about this Brexit process and it seems whether or not that's been an appropriate POV will come to light in the not too distant future.

Yes! It makes you wonder why the Brexiteers think it's a bad deal, Oh! I forgot the Remainers in the House of Commons think it's a bad deal as well.
By the way it is Clive who keeps telling us how well off we are going to be, and all the good news once we have left.
Havn't heard from Geoff for a long time, hope all is ok with him.

Yes but what do you really mean :wink: :D
Don't get too upset - the discussions on here are, as I am sure you are aware,
tame compared to elsewhere on the net.
With the above said - as this is one of the most important decisions for the
country in a long while then it's hardly surprising that it will envoke strong
feelings on both sides.
BTW There was plenty of stuff posted prior to and after the vote that had
no factual basis from the "leavers" so whilst it's easy to get frustrated neither
side of the "debate" have exactly covered themselves in glory. Facts have
always been in short supply and given that we are in unchartered territory
then that's I suppose to be expected.
Cheers

Ahhhh - I am drawn in. :D Devil. I have a lot of respect for you. I've read your latest book - front to back - which has actually modified my opinion on the subject of GW. Not I suspect to the acceptable standard of Evangelist though I'm afraid. Quite why you have a problem with me, to the point of regularly pouncing on my posts escapes. Steve. Nope - I'm chilled out and - trust me - not at all upset. :wink: Yes, I know. Of course these are very important times. Some say, the most since WW2. I wouldn't argue with that. Nevertheless, although new events are an almost daily occurrence it does seem that arguments about the same ole things just go around and around. Personally I've not only had a belly full of that but also the bitter antagonism between forum members it's invoked. People I have liked for years and respect have said nasty things about me, because of my views on Brexit. Ultimately when it comes to Brexit, we're all just candles in the wind. Cue Elton ...................key of E.. Nevertheless, I repeat. People who keep posting inane anti-Brexit rants are invited by myself - and hopefully the others I previously mentioned - to have sex and go away. :wink: Let them enjoy each others company?

But, of course, there's plenty of 'facts' about what the UK's economy will be like in (say) 5 years time.
It's always to accept the point of view of someone who agrees with your view than to apply critical thinking, e.g. Farage, Rees-Mogg, & Johnson (BTW, I hope you like their appearance in this vintage YouTube video ).
I hope you

Indeed. Although, it strikes me that it's a case of GDP might be this, instead of that. It's speculation on potential variables. That is - talking about what might be instead of.............. err............what might be. My view has never been restricted to economics.

Isn't that what politics is al about though.
Promises from one side, arguments against on other sides, it happens in all General Elections.
By the way, I don't think I have ever called you a name.
In your words. " You won Brexit, Get over it." :wink:

Well I agree on the belly full bit - am also sick of the whole thing and wish the
whole divisive episode had never happened but unfortunately we are were we
are.
I am not sure whether you mean nasty things have been said to you
personally or whether you mean about leave voters in general? If it is the
latter then I think in fairness both sets of voters have had insults
directed at them that don't in any way add anything to the discussion.

No.
But here we are again - a butt for the remainers.
You really do need to get over it. Then again perhaps, in the not too distant future, the likes of me will have to.
In that case, let's not pretend it has anything to do with democracy though. You will have to come to terms with your new world, in which votes really mean **** all, because those who think your decision is wrong - the intellectally superior (like Woody) prevail. Good luck with that.

Oh dear, so some people have said 'nasty' things about you, because of your views.......I can't even begin to imagine what that must be like! :lol: :lol:
But I do hope that you do not include me in that number - much as it would be an honour to think that you ever respected me :wink: - because I don't recall ever saying anything about you that could have possibly been interpreted as being the least bit nasty! :?
That is, of course, unless you identify yourself as a heavy smoking, rotund, multi tattooed individual from Manchester!! :-k :lol:

I think you have forgotten again.
We ain't left yet, so we won't know the cost to the UK until well after we do.
Until then we can only go by what the Government and CBI and BOE tell us.
But you obviously are much cleverer than them and know everything will be a bed of roses and paved with gold. :roll:

What you are choosing to forget is that these were the claims that were made by certain ministries in the event that were audacious enough to Vote Leave i.e this would be the immediate affect on markets and the economy just by voting Leave, and not as you like to allude too, the affect after we leave the EU.

Of course the Brexiteers Farage/ Bo JO and Gove didn't make false claims like the 358 million pounds a week which would be saved for the NHS.
Your Minister that you have found was he not a Cabinet Minister at the time, why did he not dispute the claim then.

Wrong?? I'm not the one that put all my eggs in one basket and is now suffering from a reduced value Pound. Again, your misery makes me smile and gives me great joy and happiness and long may it continue but like is always said, every negative has a positive and your sufferance and a lowered standard of living from the lower exchange rate of the GBP/EUR is good for the UK economy and has seen an increase in production, jobs and earnings for those of us that live in the UK. Long may it continue.

Well, pleasing as it is that something can give such a miserable old beggar as yourself such 'joy and happiness' I am happy to assure you that despite my - and all others here, who will doubtless appreciate your gloating - suffering from the fall of the Pound, I, personally, still have more than enough income to enjoy a very good standard of living in sunny Cyprus!
Meanwhile, make the most of it while you can in cold, wet and gloomy little England, because if, and when, the UK leaves the EU it's going to get a Hell of a lot worse for you! :bsmile:

What UK are you living in? Yes there has been an increase in jobs and
productivity but that is probably where the good news ends.
Since Brexit growth is down, business investment has hardly risen, wage
growth has been hit by higher inflation, UK stocks have not performed well
and much of the consumer growth has been fuelled by debt. Households
have been borrowing more than they save again and we all know what could
happen if interest rates move just a few percentage points.
The NHS has over 100,000 vacancies, thousands of other jobs remain unfilled
as movement from other EU countries has dropped off significantly.
Our high streets are being decimated as large chains reduce stores and
jobs and many of our shopping centres are struggling financially.
Most importantly let's not forget that future spending on our essential
services like the NHS, schools, police, social services etc is based on
projected tax receipts. As even with the most optimistic projections those
reciepts look likely to fall then in the short to medium term this does not
bode well.
People up and down the UK have been complaining about the effects of
austerity but I would suggest that they haven't seen nothing yet.
Of course this could all be just a negative outlook and things may well be
different in the future but that will certainly depend on the decisions
we now take.
Finally - come on DAC - you are an established member of the forum and
whilst I have not always agreed with your opinions some of your latest
comments do you a disservice imo.
Whilst this is certainly a divisive topic I hope that both sides of the
discussion can chill out a little and not make this personal as that adds
little.
Cheers
Steve

Don't talk sense and logic Steve, DAC wouldn't understand it. :wink:
He still hasn't answered my question as yet about Patel.
Just think Steve you must be a Troll, because you disagree with DAC's twisted views.

May I remind readers of post number one in this thread? I maintain that nobody who has contributed to this thread has got the slightest idea of what is going to happen except that we have a good inkling that everybody is going to be worse off. So, why carry on with pure speculation and rubbish? I summed it up in the first post and I maintain that it is the most likely to be correct.

    Wrong?? I'm not the one that put all my eggs in one basket and is now suffering from a reduced value Pound. Again, your misery makes me smile and gives me great joy and happiness and long may it continue but like is always said, every negative has a positive and your sufferance and a lowered standard of living from the lower exchange rate of the GBP/EUR is good for the UK economy and has seen an increase in production, jobs and earnings for those of us that live in the UK. Long may it continue.
    Que, the remarks from the Trolls...

How do you know someone has all their eggs in one basket? I for one took a hard hit on my pension with the reduced exchange rate, but as for suffering you must be joking. Just come back from a cruise around China, Japan, SK. Off again in 3 weeks to spend a week in London then flying to Barbados for another cruise around the caribbean for new year. If that is suffering then I will take it all day long :-) And if you think the posts on here amount to trolling then you evidently have never been trolled..

    May I remind readers of post number one in this thread? I maintain that nobody who has contributed to this thread has got the slightest idea of what is going to happen except that we have a good inkling that everybody is going to be worse off. So, why carry on with pure speculation and rubbish? I summed it up in the first post and I maintain that it is the most likely to be correct.

Totally agree, that is all it is pure speculation and supposition..

I would think the100's of Brit expats reading your post will be thrilled to hear what you really think about them making a home for themselves in sunnier climes. It must make your day.
You must be a very sad person to wish ill on others.

'Sad' may be considered by some to be something of an understatement! 8)
