Seriously?
it was merely a statement of fact to counter others claims that EU economy was on a downwards spiral.

Any need for the sarcasm?

Re: Brexit (New Poll Added)

We haven't being doing well in recent times for some reason. Our growth was temporarily boosted in the last quarter thanks to all our stockpiling for a Brexit that didn't happen !
Canada's the place to emigrate to if they let us in and don't get paranoid about immigration....

A bit of perspective on that.
Quote:
That means Germany has only grown by 0.7% over the last 12 months, dragged down by a weak global economy and problems in its car sector.

Quote:
At 0.4%, Germany has matched the average eurozone growth so far this year- but is a little slower than the UK’s 0.5% growth.
So they've only just managed to match the rest of the eurozone.

The Eurozone growth has plummeted since 2017, Eg 0.1% growth in Q3 2018 and 0.2% for Q4.

If you're really interested in the how the EU 27 are doing then read this.

https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info...e/ip102_en.pdf

read the numbers only though and not the commentary, as you will see the UK, despite Brexit uncertainty for 3 years is still doing markedly better than virtually all of them.

Although the headlines and commentary try to put a different spin on it.

You keep calling it the corrupt EU, is nowhere else corrupt that we would be trading with outside the EU?

Re: Brexit (New Poll Added)

Apparently Utopia is a great place to be.
It has fantastic weather, a well managed booming economy, no unemployment, low tax rates, a surplus of decent housing and the cheapest alcohol you'll find . .

the trouble is, after decades of searching, nobody knows where it is . . . and I've looked in all the holiday brochures many times

Yes I do call it corrupt, because it is and we are annoyingly still a member of it, due to it's corruptness.

You seen the documentary, on BBC IPlayer, EU Negotiations behind closed doors, the disgusting pricks, like Guy Verhoftstadt, saying they have turned the UK in to a Colony, if they agree this non-Brexit deal and people want to remain members with these conniving scumbags?

l have no doubt there is plenty of corruption going on within the EU but there is plenty of corruption that goes on within our own borders as well unless one wants to turn a blind eye to that.

Re: Brexit (New Poll Added)

One good thing about Farage is at least the Brexit Party is giving people a party to vote for that isn't UKIP and therefore people like this: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...sed-of-assault

Didn't really answer the question rather than just having a rant.

Ah but there's good old British corruption, cash for questions, buying honours, MPs expenses, unelected second chamber... And EU corruption, which might well exist, well probably, must do cos they're foreign..

Re: Brexit (New Poll Added)

Good, solid, British corruption. British corruption for British politicians. Buy British corruption (with used notes from a brown envelope). Etc etc etc.

Re: Brexit (New Poll Added)

In a way though it's pretty pathetic corruption. Cash for questions. People claiming for a duck house. Boring.
