German industrial production falls for the first time in 2017 in June

https://www.digitallook.com/news/int...--2804764.html

German industrial orders fell unexpectedly in July on feeble domestic demand while appetite from abroad was flat, data showed on Wednesday - a rare sign of weakness in Europe’s largest economy less than three weeks before federal elections.

It's a blip, manch.

Presume the Germans will be blaming the EU, or possibly immigrants, they seem to have quite a few.

Don't count your chickens yet.
From your Reuters link,

Factories registered a 0.7 percent drop in orders in July after contracts for goods made in Germany rose by 0.9 percent in June, data from the Economy Ministry showed. The reading for July far undershot a Reuters forecast of a 0.3 percent rise.

Excluding volatile bulk orders, the headline figure was up 0.6 percent in July, the ministry said.
Was it down 0.7% or up 0.6%?

Telegraph a brexit paper reports that there are already splits in the government over Mays " leaked " immigration report with the home Secretary and Damian Green distancing themselves from it.
On the other side Boris wants the implementation period cut from two years to one.
Other senior ministers are adamant that fingerprinting of migrants applying for work permits must be shelved..

Quite astute these foreigners.

“If it is a trial balloon, then I can only say it won’t work."

Britain was no longer “the enfant terrible of the club … but a country full of doubt”.

This Tory government is fast becoming a continental embarrassment.

The Best and Worst Countries to Live and Work In, According to Expats | Bloomberg

The reputations of the U.S. and U.K. as good places to live and work are in free fall among some of the world’s most mobile and cosmopolitan people.

The U.K. ranks 54, down 21 places from last year’s survey, after its June 2016 vote to leave the European Union. Before the referendum, 77 percent of expats in the U.K. had a favorable opinion of the nation’s political stability—down to 47 percent this year. (The survey was conducted in February and March, before the most recent British election.) Just half of expats say the U.K. has a good attitude toward foreign residents, compared to 67 percent worldwide.

Expats in Britain have also soured on its economy. The weak pound and higher inflation put the U.K. 59th for personal finance. Almost two-thirds of its expats have an unfavorable opinion of its cost of living, with 69 percent unhappy with the affordability of housing.

Oh, and the weather. Three in five expats don’t like it.

It depends on whether you are an expat--mobile--cosmopolitan (relatively wealthy) or a migrant. If the latter the 'other' country becomes home and you take the bad with the good! (As all the posters who complaining about immigrants not integrating keep telling us.)

Also depends which part of a country you live in--which State, which city--which county--

Well, there's always a handful of nutters of every nationality.

This bunch, however, appear to have been in Britain long enough to have become equally brainwashed as many Brits, subjected daily to Britain's "unique" media reality.

I'd wager those that they probably live in the very same alternate reality that many Brits do. Certainly their narratives sound eerily like a daily express article. Much like your rhetoric, for example.

And they say foreigners never integrate. Well, some do, apparently.

Last year Spaniards, those living in Spain, were polled on EU membership and 81% said it was a good thing, unsurprisingly.

For some balance, and from the same rag...

While our politicians fiddle and posture the British Chamber of Commerce has downgraded its forecasts for growth in the UK economy.
In its report is one comment that the fall in sterling has done more harm than good, so much for the " export boom " on which the UK future out of the EU relies.
The trade gap between imports and exports us increasing even though exports to the EU are growing.
The skills shortage is also getting worse particularly in what are termed " blue collar jobs ".

Watched Suella Fernandes MP on C4 news last night squirming when asked how many hardline Brexiteer MPs are members of the European Research Group, currently the power behind the throne. These MPs claim 'expenses' for 'research' from the UK taxpayer. Leadsom alone has claimed £10,000.

Revealed: The Tory MPs using taxpayers’ cash to fund a secretive hard-Brexit group

I think we've now crossed the rubicon regards leaving the EU, customs union and single market in March 2019. The health of the UK economy is being sacrificed for ideology.
