Re: Brexit....or in.

But you only debunk them with just a just as flawed dedinitive argument the other way. Inflation causes economic growth, for example. We will have better trade deals, for example. Etc. For the second time in a few posts, you appear to be arguing with something I haven't said? I've been putting forw...

Re: Sack race

Against Birmingham, yes. They'd got into the playoffs and were resting their team. That's up to them. The league and other teams are not in a position to be making value judgements on who a manager should be playing in which match. Nice != screws their own team to help a different one. Except there...

Re: FA Cup: Blackburn Rovers v Newcastle, Tue 15th Jan, KO 19:45

Baffled how a player who never got back onside from being miles offside can be missed by the linesman. Leaves a bad taste that such an easy decision had such a pivotal effect on the result. However, the goals we conceded were poor from a defensive point of view. Part of me thinks missed opportunity,...

Re: Brexit....or in.

We can publish the WTO tariffs, yes. But if you look at what I wrote, you'd see that I stated we can't negotiate tariffs with specific countries; so when you say we can reduce tariffs.... Well we can't. We can have the WTO tariffs, and once we've left the EU we can negotiate fresh tariffs that migh...

Re: Brexit....or in.

But aren't allowed to do that under WTO rules until an agreement is made between both parties involved. Which we aren't allowed to negotiate until we leave the EU. :shrug: And by reducing tariffs on imports you fail to counter the increase in tariffs on exports anyway. So your currency is devalued,...

Re: Brexit....or in.

A weakened pound impacts our imports and contributes to inflation, further increasing the chances of recession, especially in real terms for the consumer. But can be countered by reducing the tariffs we apply to imports, as I've already said. Or we end up selling more domestic products which become...

Re: Brexit....or in.

It's not too simplistic to say we'll have tariffs we didn't have before... Because that's exactly what will happen if we exit the EU without a trade deal. :shrug: "While tariffs on some EU goods — agricultural goods and automobiles in particular — would be higher than 3 per cent, economic gains sec...

Re: Brexit....or in.

It does make a recession likely. There will be a significant change to business costs that have been unplanned, a significant increase in tariffs from overseas trade (e.g. 10% on all car parts/cars for sale; 35% for agriculture) that will undoubtedly have a huge impact on the economy and people's l...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Upholding the referendum is likely to cause a recession, it always seemed obvious to me that any deal with the EU would likely be a non starter; there are too many opinions and divisons to be able to agree any compromise. I genuinely think the only way that the UK will leave the EU is for them to d...

Re: Brexit....or in.

They're all normal changes to the economy that occur regardless of leaving a customs union though. Inflation rises and falls, interest rates are adjusted. But there's been no actual change to the way in which we do business yet. So what, we're going to get a whole new range of economic indicators w...

Is some of the £13.8 million going to be used to buy ships? :hyper: Didn’t the P&O Spirit of Britain cost £157 million? ;) Is the only investment in this company from the Government? Exact...
