Extreme Brexit could be worse than financial crisis for UK: BoE

Recommended Posts

Here is a list of UK food & drink that currently enjoys Protected Geographical Status under EU law - only clotted cream from Cornwall can legally be called Cornish Clotted Cream; only whisky from Scotland can be called Scotch, for example.

 

Already the US has made it clear that they want these protected statuses removed to allow their producers to compete. In order to reach a deal, our government is likely going to sell out our heritage.

Jacob Rees Mogg has apparently called Mark Carney a 'failed second tier politician'. That's a bit rich coming from a man who has never shifted from the back benches, who took five years to achieve his 2nd class degree and who owes his current status solely to his parents' fecundity. Had he been born a regular Joe, he would have achieved nothing more than the mediocrity his abilities demand, and the country would not currently be blighted by his hard right rhetoric of greed.  

That surprised me too as Carney is surely a banker rather than a politician, albeit prefixed by 'Merchant😊

Andrew Pearce summed him & the Treasury up wonderfully a few mins ago during sky news press preview when he said something like "They can't even get their 3 month forecasts right, let alone 30 years!"

I understand your point and you are right but somehow this is funny/

How many people are interested in "Cornish Clotted Cream"?

And how many would buy "Scotch" from the USA?

Did anyone of the hard Brexiters ever publish a realistic and positive forecast for the future after Brexit?

As far as I know that didn't happen. And it's easy to explain why it didn't happen: Because it's impossible!

They all moan and they all tell their stories how they would make things better but it's all bla bla. Just unrealistic dreams.

 

Its like telling a car manufacturer that you don't like that car for $20,000 which with 100BHP and 3l per 100km.

You want a car with 500BHP which uses 1l per 100km for $5,000. That's what you want and you insist that is the only thing you would buy.

Yeah, great idea, except it's just a dream and won't happen. Get real!

As a committed Brexiteer I take no notice of these ongoing and nonsensical threats from the establishment. Project Fear was a disaster and did not work, time to drop the negativity. To have our country back, in any shape or state, is a far better outcome than to remain in the failed experiment that is the European Union. Constant riots in France, shocking unemployment across the Spain, Portugal and Italy, porous borders and evil NGOs reeking havoc on the social cohesion across the board. Bully-boy non elected eurocrats telling us how to live and think. No. No. No. We will take a nice, fast, hard Brexit and we will be proud to be Great Britain once again.

 

That is pretty much my view too. With hindsight we should have left the EU the week after the referendum result with one hand firmly on the public purse until deals could be agreed from that much stronger vantage point. If Maggie were around that's how she might have done it.

So I take it that you don't agree then simoh1490? Say why; if you could!

I'm afraid the idea of Corbyn leading the country terrifies me, he has neither the agenda/manifesto, the people nor the policies to do so without bankrupting the nation, I mean, that's what Labour is good at and God knows they've had ample practice. Have you seen his ideas on nationalising the water and energy companies and revitalising social care, plus his idea of heavily taxing business and industry, why not just invite every Plc and entrepreneur to simply leave, it's the same thing....those may all separately be worthwhile things to aspire to but they are very bad things to announce if you want to try and get elected, especially at the same time, that in itself says the man and the party have no real strategy other than aspiration. Then we have Abbot, for the love of god, and then we have giving away Trident and any nuclear capability, why not just invite Putin to take us over and instal a communist head of state and make us a gulag for the mainland.

The Treasury/BoE can't forecast 6 months in the future let alone 15 years. There are a massive number of variables following Brexit. To produce this now is clearly just propaganda. This is exactly why we wanted to leave the EUSSR.

I agree that products need to be protected but there must be ways around it? How does the wine industry fare re Burgandy etc bottled in say Chile or OZ? I also recall reading something supporting your point involving the term "Kiwi" fruit where NZ failed to trademark the name and lost out to growers in Chile around a decade ago.

The 'legal advise' currently being withheld is thought to contain confirmation that the northern ireland backstop could leave us in the EU indefinitely!

Well said evadgib.

 

We should have left the EU the very next morning. Should have got in a few of the Brexiters; Davis, Mogg, Farage, Galloway, Hitchens and other leading figures as well as representatives from the fishing and agricultural and engineering community and formed a 'Brexit steering group' to negotiate on UK's behalf. The EU would have been shaking in its jackboots and would probably paid us 39billion to <deleted> off (go quietly).

 

This Carney geezer, that is always sticking his oar in; is just a front to keep up the pretence that the BoE belongs to England (UK). The BoE is a privately owned bank. The UK government (on our behalf) has just one share in the place. It is not open to any scrutiny at all and simply having a list of the real owners (shareholders) on one's person is against the official secrets act.

 

As it stands the UK government had no authority to force the BoE to disclose anything it doesn't wish to divulge. Corbyn would (try to) sort this out. This is one reason why he is so demonized by the elites and those that are doing 'OK, thank you very much' and do not want to rock the lucrative boat. Never mind the 4 million people relying on food banks and the 1 million people in despair (UN report).

Project fear at it's worst. What a load of BS. Carney the Carpetbagger clearly being paid to follow Hammond's orders. Pass the vomit bucket.
