  1. ...that is a clear graph ...grateful you note who is the source?
  2. ....could you give me a link to your source data ...or is this your personal opinion..and could you explain why you arrived at these figures.?..many thanks.....
  3. The author, Penny Reid, IMHO, puts it very well and it applies to thread opinions... "Know the difference between "news reporting" (aka actual news, fact) and "editorial" (aka opinion, not fact). Before you accept an article or TV report as factual, check to see first if it's an opinion piece/editorial. Editorials always include bias. Take them with a huge grain of salt. If it's not classified as editorial or opinion, then look for bias/judgemental language. 1) Is the news reporter reporting what happened? (just the facts) 2) Or, are they adding what they think/feel about what happened? (their opinion) It's okay for a news reporter to quote someone else's opinion within the news article, but if the reporter is offering their own feelings, the article ceases to be news."
  4. ...it's all about adult choices, being tough in bargaining as you should do in every day life and controlling your own destination rather than some unelected unknown in Brussels telling you what to do ....without even your MEP having a say....?
  5. .....Tories' response to Corbyn's stance....simples ...take your pick ..we're all adults...? “Jeremy Corbyn is getting desperate and is out-and-out lying to the public about what these documents contain. He has always believed in conspiracy theories – which is why he has failed to crack down on the scourge of antisemitism in his party. This is the man that has caused huge offence by blaming an imaginary ‘Zionist lobby’ for society’s ills and now he has decided to smear UK officials too. “People should not believe a word that he says – this stunt is simply a smokescreen for the fact that he has no plan for Brexit and that he has been forced to admit that he wants to increase taxes for millions of families. “As we have consistently made clear: the NHS will not be on the table in any future trade deal and the price that the NHS pays for drugs will not be on the table. This sort of conspiracy theory fuelled nonsense is not befitting of the leader of a major political party"
  6. ...a few privitisations are hardly Corbyn's extreme ideas of socialism...think Venezuala whose leader he backed from the beginning and you are nearer the mark ... .....hardly a debased currency ...that is more likely if Corbyn becomes PM.....
  7. ....they will be happy as we steer towards a hard Brexit as the EU implodes.....
  8. ...hardly ...they follow Corbinista socialist style policies ...we can have a Venezuela economy if Corbyn gets in ...
  9. ...seems a good idea...where will Germany and France be then ..? ....trading Marks and Francs...and no EU.....bring it on...
  10. ...are you some kind of Troll against democracy ...the vote has taken place and we will have delivery ...the loser's poll can take place after Brexit by which time the EU will have imploded....
  11. ...forget Carney ...this is a winner for exports ....and... Germany: In any bear market, there is always one market that gets hit the hardest (after the dot com bust, for example, it was arguably the FTSE which took almost two decades to claw back its 1999 level). What will it be this time around? Take a look at Germany’s DAX. It has already been one of the most miserable performers of any developed country index. It is down 22pc from its 2018 peak, compared with a European average of 16pc. Even worse, almost half its members are in some form of crisis, from the auto-makers to Deutsche Bank, to industrial giants such as Bayer. Its giant car manufacturers account for 30pc of the index, and the chemicals companies for another 20pc, and those are both very challenging industries. Over this bear market, investors will come to realise how hollowed out and backward-looking the German industrial machine has become. A bear market is never much fun for anyone. It exposes a lot of flawed business models, over-hyped trends, and inept, incompetent management. Companies that were unsustainable get found out, banks that have over-stretched themselves run into trouble, and central banks have their nerve and skill tested along with ordinary investors. This one won’t be any different. It promises to be a rough ride – and it is only just starting. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/12/28/bear-market-coming-five-possible-victims/?li_source=LI&li_medium=li-recommendation-widget
  12. ...worth noting for the misinformed.... Italy was on a collision course with the EU over its budget deficit "As Theresa May is apparently now going to propose an extraordinary arrangement with the EU in order to secure “access” and fend off supposed disaster for the UK economy, it is worth reflecting on the outcome of our exclusion from the euro. Since 1999, compared with Italy’s 9pc, France and Germany have grown by 32pc. So not much convergence there. Perhaps most strikingly, the UK has grown by 42pc" https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/12/23/italy-collision-course-eu-budget-deficit/?li_source=LI&li_medium=li-recommendation-widget
  13. ...only Germany and France your current masters ...the rest of the world and waving trade deals to us....are you an "EU bot"?
  14. ...they are democratic voters who have a different point of view from you ...who are you to judge and deny democracy....?
  15. .....what plan does the EU have as it crumbles...Germany has a plan ..to live off and rule the rest....
  16. Labour is a party which does not know what it is...the anti Corbyn people are too weak bellied to make a stand against Corbyn and he turns 180 every few days.....
  17. ...most people I know were pro Brexit before the name Rees - Mogg appeared anywhere ..food banks were here in Labours time and the elitists, who feel they are better off in Europe, as they are feeding from the central trough, do nothing but pay lip service to the unelected EU bureaucrats. Not sure who you mean about taking from the state unless you are referring to our unelected politicians in the House of Lords who make a mockery of the fact we call ourselves a democracy. Our immediate aim should be to get rid of this bunch...in paving the way for the people to get their BREXIT. The people voted for it....and the House of Lords ignores that....
  18. Norway had a Centre Left government up to September last year ...they now have a right wing coalition . https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/sep/11/norways-rightwing-coalition-set-to-retain-power-by-slender-margin ...Labour here have Corbyn whose politics are near to those of Venzueala and the far left ...not quite the same...
  19. ....you and your Tories ...you're just a lefty elitist remainer spreading propaganda...we have been trading in the emerging markets for years.....while in the EU we have become the biggest customer of the German car industry which has been subsidised by the German Government for years (against EU rules). https://www.motoring.com.au/secret-german-auto-subsidies-exposed-107275/ The EU envied our trading links in the world before 1973 ( the year we joined ). Soros shows his face plenty to support the weak EU venture as does Tony Blair and Gordon Brown . Nothing will come easy after BREXIT but to stay in the EU would be disaster. The biggest favour Gordon Brown ever did for this country was to fight Tony Blair to ensure we did not join the EU currency...good luck to Italy ...their job will be more difficult....
  20. .....the whole venture revolves around change & planning and those businesses planning ahead will be succesful.. those not will fail ...that's the way it has always been ..grab the opportunities....and don't rely on the government or the civil service to do your planning ...
