Who said, the EU will accept the UK ( or what is left of it in a few years) as a member again ?

Remind, this is NOT decided at Downing street nr 10, but in the EU Council, existing of the heads of governments of the EU member states. And 1 Feb. the UK is no longer a member, so has to say as much as the prime minster of Argentina or Zimbabwe.

doubt if the EU will survive in its present form ,Germany is already going into recession and France has major problems ,who else will there be to pay for it?

There is always a sterling bounce after an election, especially if it is a Tory win.  However these are not normal times and the future is still uncertain.  It is only the beginning and nobody knows what sort of Brexit we will finally end up with.  We will not see the wood for the trees for at least a year and that is only if Boris delivers on his time scale.  In the meantime the Tories have made a lot of commitments in their election campaign which will mean borrowing a vast amount of money to fulfil. Of course Johnson could say that we have to wait for any of that until after the transition period is completed.

 

Truth is none of know and with Boris's reputation of lying through his teeth, he has a lot of convincing to do to get people to trust anything he says.

 

At least we can go into the new year knowing that Corbyn and Farage are gone and are unlikely to return.  You can be sure that Johnson will continue to be scrutinised by a very sceptical public.

And I know some that gained fruitful employment when the Brexit vote was carried to get out.... employment swings both ways!

 

 

"My" people had well-paying jobs: a Banker, a Lawyer, and a Manager in a car-factory.

 

 -  What kind of jobs did "your" people find ?

...does Krugman ever get anything right ? 

I would enjoy a few examples of his errors. I used to read his column in the Bangkok Post.
