Brexit is great!?

https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-eu-finance/brexit-delivers-longer-blow


Did you read the article? So, a survey says people feel a bit gloomy, and yet:

‘This was despite firms reporting growing business volumes and increased employment in the quarter to March, and that they planned to grow headcount further in the next three months.”

If that’s down to Brexit then yep, that sounds pretty good actually. People can be a bit melancholic if it means more business and more jobs. More of the same please.

Or did you not mean that bit?

In other financial centre news, London remains the number 1, pre-eminent hub for financial services worldwide.

If you click the link, you will have to scroll down a long way before you find another EU city.

London financial services is the jewel in the crown. We mustn’t hamstring it by tying it to a failing EU in a limp, soft Brexit. As you won’t read elsewhere today 😀

Haven't left the single market yet skip.

But even when we do, we'll still be on of the top financial centers. Frankfurt will probably start climbing the table, but will never overtake London.

Yeah, you won't read that anywhere where people know about financial services are, that's for certain.

Yeah I can just picture a load of bankers up to their eyeballs in cash, with their billion pound bonuses sitting around thinking "it's only downhill from here".

Pessimistic bastards!

The thing that gets me about this, is that Rees Mogg knows enough about this to understand that what the Sun are saying is genuinely crap. It's not true. At all. Not even an ounce of truth.

And yet, he's still prepared to pretend it is.

It is quite unbelievably sickening that he's happy to lie quite so blatantly. And sad that people will believe it.

...Yes I read the article and as you have had a "hard of thinking moment" I'll give you some support.
It's point is that the Brexit affect has had an effect that has made the gloom last longer than the financial markets dip. And gloom has an effect on the markets/our economy.

As to the piece that you quoted ... you are aware that the rest of the world is coming out of the recession at a faster rate than the UK and people are getting real pay rises unlike us who are slowly coming it with a relative/real terms pay reduction.

Note. All parties point to global recession as the cause of the nation ills yet they claim the credit for the boom during a global boom. Global markets are improving way faster than us...we have problems.

Is the answer because he believes he might be able to ride this wave of chest-beating patriotism into number 10 Downing Street?

The jewell in the crown achieved whilst being a member of the EU to boot. It'll be ok after we leave too, no matter how hard or soft the exit, as it's too important for the government to let fail. Unlike most of the rest of us.

Emphasis on mozzarella type of course. Not mozzarella.

And isn't that sad.

These people are prepared to damage the lives of millions that they KNOW will suffer, simply to achieve their own ambitions.

He's worth millions and millions of course. He's be just fine and dandy. And people who are going to suffer are cheering him on. Like lambs to the slaughter.

The government won't have much choice about some of it. That power lies with the EU.

You'll know better than me, but I suspect the City will be looked after post-Brexit? I can't see either the UK or the EU wanting to let that fail. My main point I suppose is that any adverse impacts will hit those who can least afford them.

They will attempt to do so, but passporting changes will have a big impact. The bit that people seem to miss, is that within the free trade zone, different parts of the EU have different specialisms. In much the same way as within the UK, different industries that support the whole are based in different areas. Our huge specialism within the EU is financial services. Once we leave, they find a different centre. It won't happen overnight, but over time, the shift to Frankfurt as an example, will bite harder and harder.

People like highjack don't care. They make flippant comments about bankers counting their money. But the City provides billions in taxes for public services in this country. £125bn of the UK's GVA is financial services. 3% of the population employed by financial services. £60bn trade surplus in the financial services sector. £25bn in just tax receipts from the banks on their own last year.

Totally agree with your last point. ''Twas ever thus.

The United Kingdom will be absolutely fine outside of the EU.
My only fear is the fifth columnist that are masquerading as MP’s and those in the House of Lords.

The Swamp needs to be drained, to quote the president of the United States.

It beats me how the other 14 cities in the top 15 got to be there without the awesome support and importance of the EU. I mean, even Sydney and Melbourne beat Frankfurt on that rating system. Melbourne is a great city but financial powerhouse it ain’t.

You’re right, I don’t care. It’s a horrible “industry” full of horrible people. It may produce billions in taxes but so does the tobacco industry.
