So predictable. Ever since June 23rd the BBC have been PRAYING (to Allah?) for some grim economic news that they can hang on the Brexit decision. Entertainly, economic conditions continue to be positive which clearly annoys the BBC. So their new position is that whilst Economic Armageddon did not happen in the way so many of their “experts” warned us, it still could. Hence the way they downgrade  good news and add a future warning. They are so desperate for the UK economy to grind to a halt. Instead it keeps on moving forward!

    “They are so desperate for the UK economy to grind to a halt”

    That’s as plain as the nose on my face! In what other profession would those who hope for failure for their own company (nation)! What kind of traitor wishes that more UK families/bread winners be thrown onto the dole just to satisfy their anti-sanity theories! Creeps all of um!


    • TrueToo says:

      And they can keep hoping for Brexit failure secure with their excessive pay packets and knowing that no matter what rubbish they pump out the money will keep flowing in.


      • johnnythefish says:

        Excellent point. Perhaps if they were dependent on voluntary subscriptions and therefore the general prosperity of the nation that has to find the money to pay them, they might take a slightly different view.

        (Low flying pigs alert…)

    Not only the BBC is continuing to whimper about future problems . The OECD, another of Osborne’s favoured experts, has increased its UK growth rate forecast for 2016 as its now obvious the post brexit winter recession won’t happen, but simultaneously its reduced its forecast for 2017. Anyone believe it ? Not unless you’re a remoaner.


  3. Wild Bill says:

    I can’t wait for the New Year and article 50 being triggered,I am sure the UK will prosper and we can sit back and listen to the Remoaners excuses.


  4. vesnadog says:

    I only watch the “papers” BBC News 10:30 and 11:30 pm just to see the remain voters squirm in their seats while showing their constant irritation to every bit of Brexit good news! For every news clip they show in favour of Brexit i.e, our independent bright-future they always twist and stretch-out their pre-referendum predictions/hopes of calamity for the working class of this great nation of ours (not theirs – French/German/..)


  5. engineerdownunder says:

    Economic forecasters have a poor record and the BBC economic forecasters are even worse!
    But, here’s one forecast that I guarantee … there will be a downturn in the economy at sometime in the future. And when it happens the Beeb will blame it on Brexit, ignoring the other 101 factors that drive economies.
    Be ready.

      + Thatcher.


    • 60022Mallard says:

      IIRC the same OECD report which indicated a softer landing than expected for us post referendum also tuned down their expectations for other EU countries, which would indicate a less expansionist period generally, but, as you say, that must not be considered.

      A repeat I know, but do not forget to thank remoaners for carrying on regardless when they could have pulled up the drawbridge completely on their spending and made Project Fear come to fruition. I suppose the BBC types just could not stop their wife’s or boyfriend’s dress allowance, going on holiday, dining out, shopping at Waitrose and the 1001 other things that “we” do that get reflected in the economic figures.

    I am a fervent Brexiteer and have been ever since Maastricht, but realistically I do anticipate a lot of upheaval as we leave. There must be a period of adjustment especially if our European “friends and allies” behave childishly, but in the long term our future is much brighter. People will not willingly forgive any organisation that undermines confidence and talks us into a recession.


    • Guest Who says:

      Ian Katz is currently campaigning for you not to to be able to self describe as a Brexiteer, as it sounds too glamorous and dashing.

      Good luck with that, Ian.

    Raymond Le Blanc apprently feels ‘betrayed’ by Brexit – it is like a ‘knife in the heart’ for him.—plu/

    So expect an appearance on the BBC very, very soon.

    In the meantime, Raymond, imagine how impotent and ‘betrayed’ British citizens of 50+ felt when they saw their democracy being slowly whittled away by successive treaties and power being handed to an unelected, incompetent bunch of foreign bureaucrats fixated with an ideological vision of a politically-united, authoritarian Europe – whatever it may cost.

    Just imagine that, Raymond. And btw if you love ‘Europe’ so much, you know what to do next (but I bet you don’t).

    Tim Martin has a new long article in the Weatherspoon’s Autumn magazine
    … now available in the pub or download PDF ..Here’s a quick screenshottimall.jpg

    The Bank of England’s Mark Carney also did his best to frighten the public with the possibility of higher interest rates and a recession, while FTSE 100 directors lined up to threaten reduced investments in the referendum aftermath – most of these threats have now been retracted.

    If a second referendum were to take place, it seems certain that the Leave side would win with a far bigger majority, since the economic case put forward by the Remain side has been shown to be deceitful and unfounded. As indicated above, interest rates have gone down not up, foreign companies are lining up to invest in the UK,…”


    • StewGreen says:

      In addition the magazine also reproduces on pgs 24-28, 4 more articles Tim mentions in his article.
      “The doyen of the Leave campaign, Daniel Hannan, explains his post-Brexit views
      in an article in the Daily Telegraph”


      • StewGreen says:

        From the main article : “But the sheer, relentless pessimism of the BBC, Sky News and the Financial Times could become self-fulfilling”

        and another important bit :

        .. it has been asserted elsewhere that Leave campaigners misleadingly stated that the UK would save £350 million a week, when the actual cash saving was only half that amount.
        … It seems unlikely that many people can have been misled in this way, since there was a full public debate about the significance of the gross amount of £350 million and the relevance and endurance of the rebates – with the information available on the BBC website, as well as on the websites of many national and local newspapers.
        … For example, on BBC’s Question Time, two months before the referendum, the compere, panel and studio audience patently understood the relevance of the statistics.


    • Loobyloo says:

      Good article but don’t agree with his favour of free movement within the EU. There has to be some control so that we can afford life here. work permits is the answer – maybe easier to get from EU citizens?


      • 60022Mallard says:

        Perhaps it depends if it is free movement to travel rather than free movement to take up employment.

        I suspect most would be in favour of the former?
