re: Post EU Referendum
 

Britain enjoyed stronger growth than had been thought in the three months to September, closing 2016 with little evidence of a Brexit slowdown.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the economy expanded by 0.6 per cent in the third quarter, up from its earlier estimate of 0.5 per cent, and signalled that it was on track for a robust final three months of the year.

The figures again make a mockery of warnings before the EU referendum that the UK would stall in the aftermath of a Leave vote, though most economists now argue that the negative effect has simply been delayed.

The Treasury had expected the economy to move into recession, contracting by 0.1 per cent in both the third and fourth quarters.

its all good!

Spot on. :thumbup:

"Ah," say the Remoaners, "but Britain hasn't left the EU yet. Just wait until Brexit takes effect."

SORRY CHAPS, BUT THATS NOT WHAT YOU SAID AT THE TIME.

THE LINE TAKEN BY THE TREASURY, THE BANK OF ENGLAND, THE IMF AND VIRTUALLY EVERY INTERNATIONAL AGENCY WAS THE ACT OF VOTING TO LEAVE THE EU WOULD CAUSE AN IMMEDIATE ECONOMIC SHOCK.

What who said at the time? The pre-June 23rd REMOANERS?

Rant away peabrain but A50 will be a suicide note for the UK when (if) triggered.

(CNN) Exactly six months ago, Britain voted to leave the EU. How is it working out?

Well, the United Kingdom ends 2016 as the fastest-growing G7 economy, according to the IMF. British stocks are the best-performing in Europe. Unemployment keeps falling. Major firms -- GSK, AstraZeneca, Lidl, McDonald's, Google, Wells Fargo -- have announced huge investments.

"Ah," say the pessimists, "but Britain hasn't left the EU yet. Just wait until Brexit takes effect."

SORRY CHAPS, BUT THATS NOT WHAT YOU SAID AT THE TIME.

THE LINE TAKEN BY THE TREASURY, THE BANK OF ENGLAND, THE IMF AND VIRTUALLY EVERY INTERNATIONAL AGENCY WAS THE ACT OF VOTING TO LEAVE THE EU WOULD CAUSE AN IMMEDIATE ECONOMIC SHOCK.

George Osborne, then the British chancellor and prominent Remain campaigner, said that there would need to be an emergency budget within days to raise taxes and cut spending by £19 billion -- a plan that was dropped right after the vote.

Mark Carney, the governor of the Bank of England, predicted "a technical recession" -- that is, a contraction in two successive quarters. In fact, the economy expanded by 0.5% in the three months to September and seems to have expanded again during the quarter now ending.

The IMF, having predicted disaster, has been ticked off by its own watchdog for being so obsessed with European integration that it failed to be neutral.

Let's see what happens if the UK leaves the EU.

Lord King says Brexit brings 'real opportunities'

He said there were "real opportunities" for economic reform and new trade deals which meant Brexit could be a success

Lord King suggested that Britain would be better off economically completely out of the EU single market and that there were "question marks" about staying in the customs union as that may constrain the government's ability to sign trade deals with countries outside the Union.

"I think it's more difficult to take advantage of those opportunities," Lord King said when asked about staying inside the customs union after leaving the EU - a position, for example, adopted by Turkey.

"I don't think it makes sense for us to pretend we should remain in the single market and I think there are real question marks about whether it makes sense to remain in the customs union.

"Clearly if we do that we cannot make our own trade deals with other countries.

Any fact-based evidence you have of this would be appreciated.
