      UK economy grew by 0.6% in final quarter of 2017, says thinktank




      Longest period of rising manufacturing output in 23 years contributed to fastest growth rate since late 2016, Niesr estimates

      The National Institute of Economic and Social Research said it was pencilling in expansion in gross domestic product of 0.6% in the final quarter of 2017, up from 0.4% in the previous three months and above the latest City estimates.

      Manufacturing output was 1.4% higher in the three months to the end of November than in the preceding quarter.





      Turned out nice again.

            Brexit harms us all what a dumb idea.

            The UK could have had way more leverage by just using Brexit as a threat than actually implementing it like a fool.



            A second referendum would be good and would instantly bring some economic gains.
            tha's exactly what I said all along the referendum should have been 'stay in Europe as is' or 'if we don't get deal x then we leave' - would have given Cameron a platform to sort a new deal

            The wrong question was asked

              We tried to warn the EU in early 2016 that a referendum on our continued membership was very much in the offing if the concessions Cameron sought to obtain were not provided. The EU, in its infinite wisdom, decided that Cameron was either bluffing, or was exaggerating the possibility of a referendum returning a "leave" vote and few, if any, concessions were given as a result. Along came June 2016 and the rest, as they say, is history.

                An immigration quota of 100,000 was not really an unreasonable request either. It would still have left the UK accepting more EU immigrants than France or Italy in a typical year, whilst paying more. It's a sad case of the same rules leading to asymmetrical affects on different nations. But somehow when Germany and other nations get hit with what they consider too many non-EU immigrants, suddenly quotas start getting introduced and the free movement philosophy goes out the window. Maybe there are just sensible limits, and differing but still sensible reasons why free movement (in its current guise) is a really dumb idea.

                    In their guidelines, the EU say:
                    • Transition should run from Brexit in March 2019 to 31 December 2020
                    • All EU rules and regulations - as well as EU rule changes adopted after March 2019 - should apply in the UK during the transition phase
                    • There can be no "cherry picking" on the single market - so free movement into the UK should continue
                    • The UK will not be involved in the decision-making of EU bodies
                    • It cannot implement its own international agreements unless the EU agrees
                    • Work should continue on finding a solution to the Northern Ireland border question, one of the main sticking points in the first round of negotiations
                    I suggest the EU be told to make a sentence from the words off and fuck with regards to the bolded point.

                      Why the hate, Corrupt?
                      You'll still be part of the Single Market, allowing the UK to implement its own international (trade) agreements would disrupt the Single Market. Same thing goes for other agreements and policies.
                      After that period you'll be free to do as you please.

                        That's fine in London - but what sort of jobs were they - minimum/living wage? You cannot rent in London on that sort of wage

                          What I find disturbing is that the EU is always at fault. Like a wife putting all te balme on you.

                          Then after an ugly divorce reality sets in, one can continue to ignore reality. Now nobody can't be blamed anymore but, miracolously, the problems remain.

                          Many people live like that, they are not very successful in their lives. Rinse and repeat.


                          The point is Cameron did not say "hey listen, or referendum comes". He acted like all politicains act these days.

                          Half-heartedly with as little personal commitment as possible.


                          If you want to influence something you have to do it right.


                          I am still of the opinion that it will be more loss for the UK than gain.


                          To again use the divorce example:


                          You ex-wife may come to your funeral, but she won't help if you can't afford nice things anymore, or feel left alone and need someone to talk.

                            So you'd be ok with the UK getting a vote on rules that will come into effect before the transition period ends?

                            If the UK is leaving the EU and the EU can make changes that effect the UK during the transition period without the UK having a say on the matter, then reciprocally the UK should also be free to make arrangements without needing the consent of the EU.

                              Especially if those changes only came into effect on the 1st January 2021.

                              If the EU is not careful the UK will end up doing trade deals with secret clauses that they cannot see.

                                As I have said a couple of times - we veto everything - we pay no more money in and bring it to its knees - we also demand a % of the assets in accordance with what we have put in

                                Sooner it is done the sooner the EU folds - it will be interesting to see how long it takes 5 years is my bet
