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 secu...

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 li...

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 do...

Re: Ben Brereton

"Brereton, who has played 17 times for the club, arrives on a three-and-a-half year deal, with the fee undisclosed. That could reach £7m depending upon clauses in the deal being triggered" Well so long as the clauses include "scores a shit load of goals and we get promoted to the PL or we sell him f...

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...

And if they don't they're unlikely to receive any cash what with them not being able to fulfill their contract.

All very boring really.

Re: Brexit....or in.

...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?

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.

It doesn't even rank close to the worst, when you start looking at the PFI stuff, for example. The fact a startup has a website with obvious stock pages isn't new, happens all the time. That a cobtract has been awarded to a startup is actually a good thing, especially given the outrage at appointing...

There'll be repurcussions later, I'm sure.
