The UK is going to become one the worlds biggest trade hubs while the EU flounders and dies. We are getting out (of the EU) in the nick of time before it all goes to shit.

Indeed, the CEBR in a release today, agrees with you (well to the extent that the UK will do well):

https://cebr.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/WELT-2021-final-29.12.pdf (page 230)

"We expect the trend rate of growth for the UK to be 4.0% annually from 2021-25 and 1.8% annually from 2026-30 and 1.8% annually from 2031-35. The UK is forecast to be overtaken by India in 2024 but otherwise holds its place in the league table to 2025. By 2035, UK GDP in dollars is forecast to be 23% more than that of France, its long-standing rival and neighbour".

Well that is good to know.

Do you mean the UK, or do you mean Britain? Or do you mean England? I'm a little unsure how a customs border between two constituent parts of the UK help the UK to become a trade hub.

They're also predicting the UK population will grow by 5 million. Is that what people voted for?

According to Michael Gove it's like training for a marathon. The tougher you make it to trade, the more 'match fit' you will become for the big race.

Lol. We join the EU, we get 5m more immigrants. We leave the EU, we're forecasted to get 5m more immigrants.

Conclusion. Presumably leaving the EU causes high immigration, and lol at the leavers and them causing high immigration.

This thread is genuinely a batshit nutcase of a place to be, a 'double concentrated' fruit juice version of the UK. I quite enjoy it sometimes and will be sad to see it go.

There is an awful lot of negativity on here when, in reality, we don't know if it will work out better or worse.  Of course its not as much fun when people come on saying "You know what, its really all up in the air".

This thread is full of people coming up with that ******** and its been discussed to death.

Yes, it is ********.

Lets just say, removing the ability to sell your goods in your main market is not going to improve your economic prospects, especially as we will be blocked from replacing that market with any other.

Oops - didn't post that correctly - referring to there being a very large majority in the House in favour of the deal (or at least voting for it):

 

In at least one respect it's a pity, the high drama from the last attempt to get a deal through was riveting (especially as the Speaker was so partisan).

Yes that would have been bad.

From the BBC website 8 minutes ago:

"The UK rolled over dozens of trade deals with countries around the world since deciding to leave the EU's trading arrangements.

The vast majority of the 62 trade deals the UK has signed over the past two years have retained the same terms as before Brexit".
