Unbelievable.

Apparently language was agreed this morning and then changed.

Once it comes back to the house they’ve lost the vote and more importantly, can’t ever use this tactic again. I don’t know what’s going through their minds. They surely can’t see a way of avoiding this.

Can't wait! Ignore the re-moaners, they're just mad they didn't get what they want. We can both look forward to an self-governed sovereign independent country free to make new laws, trade deals & control boards. Instead of the unelected bureaucratic anti-democratic superstate in Brussels.

If one country does poorly, blame the country; if many countries are doing poorly, blame the system.
The central problem in a currency area is how to correct exchange-rate misalignments like the one now affecting Italy.
Germany’s answer is to put the burden on the weak countries already suffering from high unemployment and low growth rates. We know where this leads: more pain, more suffering, more unemployment, and even slower growth. Even if growth eventually recovers, GDP never reaches the level it would have attained had a more sensible strategy been pursued.

I don’t disagree that the Eurozone has structural weaknesses that you describe above. As I’m sure you know though, the U.K. is not in the Eurozone.

UK employment rates BETTER than Eurozone as Britain ‘envy’ of EU neighbours

UNEMPLOYMENT rates in the Eurozone are double those in developed nations further afield. Britain’s unemployment rate has fallen to 4.1 per cent, the lowest since 1975, and in May this year the US rate dropped to 3.8 per cent.

In Europe, overall unemployment rates stand at 8.5 per cent. Although this is the lowest level since December 2008, it is still more than double the average of the 35 members in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

The UK, US, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Mexico and Chile are all included in the OECD figures, released yesterday.

Esther McVey, work and pensions secretary, described the job market as “the envy of many of our European neighbours”.

She said: “The employment rate has never been higher – with over 3.3million people moving into work since 2010 and youth unemployment has fallen by over 40 per cent in the UK over the same period.”

Youth unemployment in Britain dropped from 12.0 per cent in the first quarter of 2017 to 11.5 per cent respectively in 2018.

The rating includes young people aged between 15 and 24 years.

In contrast, youth unemployment is a serious concern in European countries with rates double and triple that in the UK.

Youth unemployment in Spain sits at a shocking 34.4 per cent; Greece is 43.2 per cent; Italy is 33.1 per cent; and France is slightly lower at 20.7 per cent.

Nearly 14million people are out of work in the eurozone – including 2.4m under 25 years old.

In the UK there were 8.65m people aged from 16 to 64 years who were economically inactive – where a person is not in employment or registered unemployed. The figure is 72,000 fewer than for November 2017 to January 2018 and 200,000 fewer than for a year earlier.

The inactivity rate was 21.0 per cent, the joint lowest since records began in 1971, Trade Economics reported.

Jobless stats remained largely unchanged in older workers, which includes people above the age of 25, having declined by 0.1 per cent to 3.0 percent this year.

Commenting on the success of the UK job market, Andrew Bridgen, Tory MP, said the figures “explode the myth that the EU delivers prosperity and employment across the Continent”.

Hailing the UK’s plan to exit the bloc, he said: “The euro and the eurozone are a protectionist club of low productivity and stagnant economic growth."

In Economics it’s a given that unemployment figures are one of the most difficult statistics for drawing meaningful international comparisons. All kinds of national differences on how they are collated. How is unemployed defined ? Of course there are problems of structural unemployment everywhere, be it Darlington, Merthyr or Lille. Bridgen reckons we’re going to be a dynamic little sweat shop economy after leaving I suppose. Pathetic. Corbyn too for playing into the hands of the vultures.

Irish MEP for Dublin, Brian Hayes;

“It is useless dreaming up new ideas if we are not delivering on what we said we would do already. Let us deliver on our existing commitments."

“I hope that once and for all the idea of having an EU Finance Minister is dropped. It is a crazy proposal.

“It is a weapon of euro scepticism. It is time it was finally discarded from the technocratic dreamworld where it came from.”

“If you are a big, small or medium sized country – the rules apply in equal measure to all."

“Whatever change is proposed, it must be on an inclusive format. That means no Euro area Parliament. Moreover, no railroading of smaller Member States.”

...and a few weeks ago

“The EU’s hard-line approach on corporate tax is not working. It is time for the Commission to look at a new strategy."

“The EU’s hard-line approach of trying to force a shift of corporate tax revenue from smaller Member States to bigger Member States is wearing thin on several countries, particularly Ireland.

“For some time, the Commission has pushed for a campaign to reform the EU’s corporate tax system but it is often unclear what practices the Commission is aiming to tackle.”







...yes mate, you are an insignificant part of the Franco-German empire now.
Good luck with imposing the will of the Irish people on Irish economic and political life in the future .
Good luck with policing the EU's border while allowing Irish businesses to be strangled by artificial trade barrier.
Don't expect special treatment from the UK from here on in now that you have nailed your colours to the German mast.

But in her BBC interview, to be aired on Sunday, Mrs May claimed the funding boost is partly coming from a "Brexit dividend".
"Some people may remember seeing a figure on the side of a bus a while back of £350m a week in cash," she said.
"I can tell you that what I'm announcing will mean that in 2023-24 there will be about £600m a week, more in cash, going into the NHS.
"That will be through the Brexit dividend. The fact that we're no longer sending vast amounts of money every year to the EU once we leave the EU."


This brilliant news will devastate some on here.

I think everyone on here would welcome more money being spent on the NHS after chronic underfunding.

But this is cynical Trump like lies and soundbitery to suggest that this will be funded by a brexit dividend. This is solely targetted towards brexiteers who’ll swallow anything positive about brexit. No serious study (especially the ones that inform government policy) sugggests we’ll have a windfall after brexit. Payments to EU will go down, but so will taxes.

Funnily enough, watching and listening to her media round of interviews this morning it did strike me as a possible tentative dip of the toe in the waters of electioneering. Might not be the worst idea in the world. She can’t get anything done at the moment so she might fancy another stab at getting a majority. And labour’s Brexit policy is a continuing shambles.
