Brexit - we are all doomed!!!

Recommended Posts

The future will see the UK needing a mighty Welfare State to support the robotically unemployed. No doubt it will be funded by the country's obscenely rich factory owners.

They will need people to look after the repair and cleaning of the robotic worker though unless they come up with a robot for that in which case they will need people to clean and repair the robotic workers robotic cleaning robots.

There will be a need for an army of care workers, unless of course, the robots take over politics and introduce euthanasia !Talking of robots: it seems a passport photo booth in N/Zealand refused to issue a photo of an Asian man, cos it claimed he had his eyes closed ! So I guess the robots require the same PC programming as our snowflake generation.

Of course it was :   Unemployment is low, despite the presence in the workforce of over 3 million migrants. The lower end of the workforce are no doubt extremely poor, but that's thanks to the 2008 crash and austerity, and a lack of trade unions. But with access to cheap labour from the EU, unscrupulous employers are having a field day in feats of exploitation that Dickens  would be familiar  with. As for currency speculations, it's just that - speculation, something no Gov can control in our    capitalst   system. And you can note that the Euro is now under pressure due to the Italian shambles .  The last time we had threats from a closed Europe   we discovered that the world was a large place in which to trade, and Napoleon's Empire faded from history.

Inward investment down, manurfacturing despite the low pound down, jobs expected to go down in the new year, prices going up, all predicted all happening, but you said scaremongering, how about a bit of honesty, you were wrong, Brexit was wrong.

 

Do you think the pound will go back to pre Brexit level?, it's just gone down again, it matters because international trade is in dollors, we already have a massive hole in our defence budget because of it, and who will make the difference up?, would it be the tax payer Obs?

 

If it is I don't remember Brexit saying taxes would go up, do you?

:lol:  He could get a job on Blackpool pier ! :lol:     Hope he's right about the taxes though, as that's what is needed, a radical re-distribution of wealth, if HMRC and HMG ever get the gonads to sort out the super-rich. Then the "left behind" can start affording food and shelter.

And now we see that McDonald's are moving one of the headquarters from  Luxemburg to the UK. The burghers just aren't doing it for the burgers any more.

According to Andrew Niell ,   growth since 2008 - US 15%;  UK 8%;  EU 0% !   Unemployment and financial collapse in Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal; wonder where their workers will go for a job and better pay ?

Being in the EU has not been a bed of roses but some people's memories of the 40 years are being clouded by nostalgia.

There was a lot of misinformation put out by both sides before the referendum, but for some reason the only people who were taken in voted to remain. And they're now complaining about it!

Clearly not doomed just yet....and hopefully never. With a more realistically valued £, there are great opportunities for British companies to increase their exports and to compete more favourably in the home market.

According to many commentators (some of whom post on here) manufacturing in this country has been falling off the cliff for the last 50 years. The pound has been overvalued for a long time.

:lol: .     ....... and now we've got the saga of the poor, 3 million, EU migrants demanding assurances that they can stay in the UK after Brexit.  Hang on a minute; if the EU is so good, and the UK is going to get so bad, why would they want to stay ?   Simple:  they can be treated exactly the same way as the EU treats ex-pat Brits in the EU - sorted.

Did you not know Obs, exports are down, despite the weak £, 

 

So the £ has been overvalued for along time, and its all good then is it. is it still overvalued?

 

A weak currency is a sign of a weak economy is it not??
