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...

We shall see if they’re up and running by the April deadline I guess.
It'll only get remembered if they aren't.

...and? 13.8 million to a company who have no ships and their T&C’s copy and pasted from a fast food website ? 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...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Not much has happened with the economy so far, because there hasn't been any real change to it yet. There's about to be though.... There's been plenty of change to the economy: exchange rate fluctuations, employment level movements, increased inflation and interest rate changes. All could be linked...

Re: Brexit....or in.

So ironically, despite disagreeing with your ill educated rant, I agree that we need to uphold the results of the referendum, despite the negatives that will come along side it (lower standard of living, likely recession, unemployment increases....). One more point - there seems to be this confiden...
