I think everyone else saw the irony in his use of the term ... so maybe he did fool you?

Fair point. OK, maybe the others can say if they were fooled like you

I have a request: in the spirit of fairness, what derogatory term should be used when talking about people who voted Leave? I mean, we don't want you missing out on all the hilarious fun do we?

UK in 2030: older, more unequal and blighted by Brexit, report predicts

https://www.theguardian.com/business...y_to_clipboard

Depressing reading, you can only hope they are wrong.

Quote:
By 2030 households will on average be 1,700 worse off per year than they would have been if Britain had stayed in the EU, with a persistently falling currency driving up prices and hitting the living standards of poorer people the hardest, according to the report.

More Project Fear from a remain institution hyped up by that Liberal lefty newspaper The Guardian that doesn't want us to make a success of Brexit! When we're free of the shackles of EU red tape and the EU 27 realise that they need us more than we need them then we'all be five grand a year better off.
I'd better just get a link to prove that these so-called experts hand-picked from the global elite are in the pockets of the Remoaners so Mr K doesn't call me out.
Wait!
Quote:
The report’s author, Mathew Lawrence, said the IPPR had taken a neutral position during the run-up to the EU referendum, and the report simply highlighted how Brexit would exacerbate challenges around inequality and low productivity that the UK was already facing.
Actually, it's quite a balanced report and Brexiters will find favour with its talk about the impacts of high levels of immigration. It mentions Brexit alongside other important factors like automation and an ageing population. The article makes an interesting read.

They are and will be !

You are depressing, keep harping on about the Country going down the pan once we leave, if you don't like reading depressing stuff, don't bloody read a biased crappy entity, such as the guardian, which, as we know by now or should do, is opposed to Brexit. Simples.

Re: Post-Brexit Thread

The remoaning Minnie's seem intent on trapping this previously interesting thread in their Groundhog Day of doom and gloom. Talking up failure into an art form is what they do best.

Their penchant for statistics does have merit though: the referendum accurately identifies those stuck in the past. Perhaps they would like to include Remoaner in their CV? For the irony of course.

Re: Post-Brexit Thread

Gotta love predictions for 2030 when most experts struggle to be right a couple of years from now yet come brexit we have all these predictions of gloom how do all those countries outside the EU manage to survive. Honestly no one has the first damn clue about whats actually going to happen it's all guesswork most of it driven by whatever side they are on it's boring and predictable. Until we are out and have a trading position in place no one can predict doom and gloom or rainbows and unicorns far too many volatile factors that haven't been set yet and that ignores the problems the EU is going to have in the coming years which may end up making brexit look like a genius move on our part. The way so many remain supporters completely ignore the gaping problems the EU is facing and insist it's the only way to a prosperous future is truly incomprehensible.

It's worth a thorough read of the article. As I explained in an earlier post, the article is not by a pro-leave or a pro-remain organisation. Many leavers in this thread have asked for independent reports. This is one such report so it deserves their attention even if some parts are not to their liking. I guess some people imagine that independent reports agree with their views. Sorry but they don't.
Yes, it's impossible to forecast perfectly so far into the future but the report does an interesting job in looking at trends like an ageing population and automation. Some things like an ageing population cannot be easily repudiated.

This is a report from an organisation which was neutral on Brexit. People from either side of the debate should invest time in reading it as oppose to just handpicking articles and sources that reinforce their views.
But if people don't wish to read The Guardian article itself, the report was also covered by Sky News http://news.sky.com/story/brexit-is-...finds-10710800

I think Rizzyking nailed it by saying no-one really knows what will happen. I think reading something that is only a pessimistic foresight, just fans the flames and feeds a remoaners appetite that they want Brexit to fail.
