It might have been different if Boris had locked down 3 times quicker and you wonder what if there had been 5 days fraternizing at Christmas relaxed restrictions-the corona cases would have soared so potentially he halted the breaks before major error number 4 to his credit better late than never.

I think at last he did listen to Scientists 10 months too late.

Failure to shut borders a disaster.

Germany - population 85 million - deaths due to covid 63 thousand - despite having NINE separate land borders. Schools starting to reopen and much better economic performance through the pandemic than the UK.

They don't even seem to be factoring Brexit into forecasts, like a massive elephant in the room. It isn't even mentioned in the article above.

I know the future is uncertain, but all evidence points to it being hugely damaging for industry, the job market, trade... to think Sunak is saying we need to be 'cautiously optimistic' is quite baffling when reports from every industry are negative.

To help the economy and help reduce coronavirus bring the clocks forward ASAP and move to double summertime with the first easing of restrictions on hospitality.

This will allow better use of daylight hours, help keep people outdoors and allow hospitality a fighting chance of making outdoor service work economically with more daylight in the evening.

Always this same fake argument.

We have 67m people, 14m have had a vaccine, 53m to go.
In Europe, ONLY Germany has more than that left to vaccinate, most countries fewer than 10m. Supplies all over Europe are picking up.

We will be one of the LAST countries to complete vaccination!

Cameron called the referendum to satisfy all the Brexiteers in the Tory party.

Both sides would have to state their case.

Of course, the lies told in the campaign made the poll invalid.

Instead of growth try some redistribution.

I have been prudent all my life and never bought anything on credit. I knew what it was like to go without! I find it sickening that anyone would now regard my assets as being available for "redistribution"!

"But remainers are metropolitan liberal elite.
They think social engineering is engineering"

It is, "Engineering" has two definitions depending upon context:

"the action of working artfully to bring something about."
"if not for his shrewd engineering, the election would have been lost"

Or in the case of Brexit, Johnson and the UK Economy:

"shrewd manufactured lies"

ROFL

Didn't you already post that?

However one post was an answer, one wasn't, so the juxtaposition is selective editing. Brexiters, always dishonest.

And for about the 100th time, the EU is not a state.
Neither is it undemocratic.

"Pre covid employment increased every year after brexit vote"

Money in the bank currently increases by 0.1% a year, rather than 5% a year in 2006 ...

... yet the money held is increasing every year but people are still complaining ...

Why do you think that is?

Perhaps because the rate of increase is not as high as it could/would be?

"investment will arrive if & when UK Gvmt starts to think long term"

.. and what exactly are investors going to invest in?

High tech knowledge based industries that draw from the "remainers" in the UK.

The question, is what UKGOV is going to do, to keep remainers in the country.

Were I 10 years younger, I would have packed my bags 24/6/2016 like many others and left.
