    Brexit

    Notice, nobody voted for Brexit because it was a good idea.

    At long last, somebody in the States has calculated excess deaths. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/05/05/us/coronavirus-death-toll-us.html 200,700 to 25 July as opposed to the official toll of 155,500 to today.

    But they didn't until they had dismantled all the exiting tried and tested logistics so they could corruptly enable their mates to get even more filthy rich.

    Yes Chaddy, only you are like an old fashioned vinyl record stuck on a single groove. Politics is dynamic and if those numbers are correct now it shows the momentum and direction towards a Labour victory.

    D'oh I have just addressed it head on in an earlier post. That is a net swing to Starmer against Johnson of 30 over Corbyn/Johnson just 18 weeks ago. Starmer is going great and will be comfortably ahead of Johnson within this year.

    Brexit

    The brown stuff meets the rotary blades on 1 January 2021 when supply chains brake. At the moment the Covid construction economy is like the cartoon character who has run off the edge of the cliff and doesn't know it yet. Get the Government business because the private sector is waking up to rents collapsing and clients cancelling.

    Let's assume your numbers are right Chaddy. That is still a 20 point swing to Starmer in four months. Enough to suggest Bozo will be a tiny speck in his rearview mirror come the elections.

    Brexit

    23 hours ago, Gav said: Tory austerity had a much bigger impact than Brexit will ever have in my opinion to those groups of people you mention, one thing those people are is resilient, they make do, Current estimates put the damage to the most vulnerable inflicted by Brexit after the transition expires at between two and three times that of austerity and inflicted in a shorter time frame.

    Brexit

    Because of the transition arrangements we are still 100% inside the single market and Customs Union. We haven't got the first feckin' clue what happens in 1 January but it's going to be bad, very bad, or horrible. In your industry as you describe it, going to be on the horrible end of the spectrum by the end of January.
