  1. Aye, total UK exports to the EU shot up by 46.6% (£3.7 billion) from January, with the number of UK-build car exports matching pre-pandemic levels from February 2020 --- Exports of food and livestock also rose by 77% Bloody good considering the lockdowns and rather renders the Remainiacs looking evermore silly I'm doing my bit in purchasing no EU foodstuffs or beverages for my homes -- It's raised my bills a tad but worth every penny In light of the EU's pathetic attempts to punish Brexit Britain, I urge others to do the same... Love Europe, despise the EU.
  2. Far truer than anything written in the Guardian that's for sure. You should get yourself a job at the BBC.
  3. I think you should go boil your head and feed it to family members, because there's certainly nothing in it worth keeping.
  4. The economic cost of the EU’s vaccine catastrophe ~ By Matthew Lynn It didn’t order enough vaccines, spent too little money, dithered over authorisation and then lashed out at the companies making them. Over the last few weeks, the catastrophe of the European Union’s vaccine roll-out has become painfully clear to everyone. We are already starting to see the toll it is taking on the continent’s health, with a brutal third wave sweeping across mainland Europe as new variants hit an unvaccinated population, and with fresh lockdowns, overflowing hospitals, and death tolls still climbing as they fall dramatically elsewhere. And yet there is also a second stage to that crisis – an economic catastrophe – that is just getting started. This morning, new terrible figures were released for industrial production in Europe. In Germany, output was down by 1.6 per cent month on month, although all the forecasts were for output to increase significantly. France was far worse, with a 4.7 per cent fall in production, despite forecasts of an expansion, while across the border in Spain growth was stagnant. Overall, predictions of an economic expansion this year are starting to be scaled back, and that is likely to continue the longer countries remain locked down. It is not hard to understand what is happening. As economies are forced to close down to keep infection rates under control, output inevitably suffers. Meanwhile rivals such as Britain and the United States are starting to open up again, while most of Asia never closed down in the same way. Their companies can operate normally, while German, French, and Italian rivals are not allowed to. It will hardly be a great surprise if they are winning orders while continental competitors are losing them. In truth, the economic damage is going to get worse. Industry and services will remain locked down for far longer than was necessary, and will take far longer to recover. A far larger percentage will also never come back. Government debt will climb even higher, as tax revenues are depressed, and the cost of support measures continues to rise. Germany might be able to afford that, but France is already the fourth biggest debtor in the world measured by total amount owed, while Italy may reach the point where its debts become unsustainable without some form of write-off – even with the European Central Bank printing money like crazy. A second missed tourist season will inflict huge damage on the heavily-indebted economies of Southern Europe (tourism accounts for 21 per cent of GDP in Greece, and 12 per cent in Spain). Meanwhile, by seizing supplies, the EU has trashed its reputation as a place to do business, and the memory of its bungling, aggressive incompetence will stick around for a long time. Many global investors won’t think of Germany as the hyper-efficient country they thought it was, or France and the Netherlands as places where property rights are respected. The vaccination disaster will be fixed eventually. Germany managed more than 700,000 vaccinations a day this week, and France has gone above 400,000. More supplies will arrive over the next two months. People will be inoculated, and Covid-19 will come under control. But the economic catastrophe is just starting – and that will soon be a far bigger problem for the continent. As part of the EU the UK would have had to do what all the other member states did; put themselves under EU direction and authority on procurement and distribution.
  5. Are you asking me do be ashamed of the EU's dismal vaccination roll-out? Well, yes, I am and so should you be, but nay, you actually back everything the EU do! Get that, coco? You and your EU loving cohorts are the people supporting the prospect of others dying from the virus.
  6. You know full well (and so should Bingham & June, but I can let them off as they don't do politics) that as part of the EU the UK would have had to do what all the other member states did; put themselves under EU direction and authority on procurement and distribution. If you deny the above you're not worthy of conversation and I suggest you do everyone a favour here by having a few days away from this site.
  7. Thank goodness for Brexit Britain's successful vaccination roll-out then, Hermo
  8. There's a third wave of the virus sweeping across mainland Europe as new variants hit the unvaccinated... This isn't happening in Brexit Britain
  9. Says you who is obviously among the 13% of prize idiots who think the EU has been acting in a friendly manner toward the UK
  10. And a poll today carried out by JL Partners for the fanatically pro-Remainiac Bloomberg says 54% of people would vote to stay out in a rerun of the referendum, coco Rather coincides with the news that socialist rags such as Buzzfeed are down heavily in revenue Will you and your Lefty cohorts here at the Pink'Un ever tire of being useful idiots?
  11. Nope, a single commissioner was named and another wants to remain anonymous (i.e. probably doesn't exist ) That particular commissioner has provided no facts or evidence, only an opinion -- If he were to agree with the report he'd lose his director position of the woke charity that can only exist for as long as they are able to chase racism where none exists. Of course the hundreds of thousands of pounds he is pocketing plays no role whatsoever
  12. I've always gone to the trouble of finding you facts, coco.. You on the other hand only ever have Guardian 'headlines', most of which don't actually reflect the real story. I've told you Remainiacs over the last 5 years that if the EU wants to build walls we will take our trade elsewhere -- You've always denied that was possible -- Well, now its happening and it's happening quickly, yet you're still in denial. If the last five years have taught me anything, it's that you can have a doctorate degree in your chosen field and still be as thick as two short ones.
  13. We can do that as well, Grandpapa. Think of all the small and medium-sized businesses that will prosper Horseflaps might invest and contribute some taxes
  14. The trade report due next week is set to show that channel trade is back to normal, coco. Of course being the extreme Lefty you are you will without doubt continue to try and blame anything that goes slightly awry on Brexit -- You'd probably blame another bad haircut on Brexit. By God the universities have got much to answer for.
  15. Oh dear, Remainiacs And... Looking like most of the rest of the world will replace the EU as our main supplier very soon... How sad, never mind
  16. An incredibly small percentage considering the enormous list of Project Fear myths. And any of those things classed as Project Fear that are appearing to be factual are being spitefully perpetrated by the EU who are completely in self-harm mode... Good
  17. Aye https://www.imf.org/en/Publications/WEO/Issues/2021/03/23/world-economic-outlook-april-2021 The UK is projected to grow by 5.3 per cent this year and 5.1 per cent in 2022, revising earlier projections up by 0.8 per cent. The Eurozone, by contrast, is merely expected to grow by 4.4 per cent this year and 3.8 per cent next year. The economic outlook for the US under Sleepy is also expected to falter, declining from 6.4 per cent growth in 2021 down to 3.5 per cent during the second year of the Democrat presidency. Not so much IMF projection as it is stating the bleedin' obvious really
  18. I do, two words -- First word begins with 'F' and the second word is 'All'...
  19. Oh dear, Grandpapa -- Even the Yanomami and Piaroa tribes of Venezuela know Sleepy didn't win the election, let alone set a record..
  20. Good news for 'Keelansgrandpapa' in Cornwall Of course one will never hear it mentioned in/on the Lefty Guardian or BBC, but it's a fact that if one has something to sell and there's a market that wants to buy it, a workaround some bureaucratic t0sser with a clip board can always be found
  21. How long do you give Sleepy before camel-toe gets in, horseminge? I reckon 5 months... Sleepy's first press conference after 64 days Now, Sleepy, you can see their pictures... The ones circled are the ones you call... You can see the questions they will ask... And you can see the answers you will give... Now remember we rehearsed this... Who is running the US of A just now? I know it's not me says Sleepy...
