??? If you have to pay a machinist £80 per hour, then it makes a bit difficult to compete on the global stage.

The right now claims "lefty" stuff as its own platform? I don't buy that.

I never knew the simplest economics was so wildly misunderstood.

Terrifying that these people were allowed to vote. :eek:

So you advocate keeping wages low to keep down inflation? I will vote Tory to keep EU immigration down to raise wages.

And wasn’t it you who voted for Cameron and Osborne?

... so production moves abroad.

I voted for a pro EU candidate and against your party.
Capiche.
You find the future bright because you are anti immigrant however you like to cover it up.

Brexit Bulletin: Changing Economic Fortunes - Bloomberg
Europe is picking up while Britain is slowing down

“They almost swapped places,” said Marchel Alexandrovich, senior European economist at Jefferies International Ltd in London. “Carney may be in the same situation Draghi was two years ago with an economy under threat from political uncertainty.”

An irony is that some Britons who campaigned for Brexit argued it was necessary to break away from a failing economy.

Funny, anti-EU schadenfreude isn't quite as satisfying anymore is it?

Like Nige says, "who's laughing now"?

I love irony!

What sane person would constantly want to slag off a country they apparently have no interest in?

A similar trait to stitching up a work colleague in the hope they get sacked.

Obviously another trait is posting nonsensical responses in a thread :rofl:

Not just a country, that can apply to anything really. Including slagging off an organisation that brings common standards, and the ability to easily move people, goods and services across the borders of 28 countries (plus 4 associated members from the EEA). Without that organisation, there'd be 28 different currencies to deal with, visas, work permits, customs checks and a lot more red tape for cross-border businesses.

Or baiting someone then complaining when they react.

But Leave won, and we're apparently planning on leaving without access to the single market and/or customs union, so exactly what are we waiting for?
