British borrowing more, saving less.

last year's growth in spending was driven by debt.
Brits are not getting payrises.
It is time for a new economic system..

If the thing goes ahead the pain won't be distributed evenly across society. Economic damage usually hits weaker members of society like unskilled workers, single mothers, kids from poor families, old people with no property, the mentally ill etc

You need to secure a decent wine supply. ...

If? surely its set in stone, Brexit means Brexit... out on our ear, skid row, back to the middle ages, internet scrapped, coal mines opened up, people only living till they are in their 50's, single mothers put to work and their kids taken off them, as for property, it will be wooden huts, no hols, and no health care or education

From the Guardian

"The pitiless reality of what Brexit actually means is the much deeper reason. Itís not just May herself whose place at the top table now looks shaky. It is Britainís too.
As the months have unfolded since the Brexit vote, most of the flippant deceptions of the leave campaign have collapsed. Few now swallow Mayís talk of a clean Brexit, much less of a red, white and blue version. Most now grasp that, at best, Brexit will be a bundle of compromises, few of them advantageous. Almost no one apart fromLiam Fox now thinks that, especially in the age of Trump, there is a viable or desirable Atlanticist, or even Anglosphere, alternative to the historic reality of Britain in Europe. As the former Nato chief George Roberston put it at Thursdayís Lords committee session, the geography hasnít changed, the threats havenít changed, and the imperative of European cooperation hasnít changed either

German voters trust Merkel and her centre-right party in ways that May and the Conservatives can now only dream of, because she embodies the economic security, humane values and competence they do not.

If, in Hamburg, May and Britain were standing shoulder to shoulder with Merkel, Germany and the EU, then Britain would indeed be a significant and effective global player. Instead, trapped by Brexit, apologising for Trump and pursuing a delusional trade strategy, Britain and its weakened prime minister cut a pitiful and destabilising figure on the international stage."

About time. Do you realise how difficult it is to get a good chimney sweep? Some of those under nourished young kids wil be ideal for the job
Warning. Don't try this at home unless in the company of a responsible adult

http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/european-airlines-will-screw-over-uk-carriers-and-steal-their-business-ryanair-boss-michael-oleary-35920301.html
The UK will reverse course on Brexit once flight cancellations start to hit British holidaymakers, Ryanair boss Michael OíLeary has said, predicting French and German airlines would seek to "screw over" UK carriers and steal their business.
"By September 2018, when your average British voter is sitting down to work out where heís going on holidays in the summer of 2019, the two options he will have will be: drive to Scotland or get a ferry to Ireland," Mr OíLeary told MEPs in Brussels on Tuesday.
"It will be a couple of months before British people understand that they donít all want to go on holidays in Ireland or in Scotland, and I think the British government will be forced to come to its senses."
"We should be optimistic. The British, I believe, will change their minds because itís going to be very bad for them over the next six to eight months," Mr OíLeary said.
He said Brexit will be "one of the great economic suicide notes in history", and predicted Lufthansa and Air France would "see a competitive opportunity" to "screw over" UK-based carriers.
He said Ryanair was already reallocating aircraft from Britain to European regional airports to ensure unfettered access to EU and transatlantic routes under an EU-US open skies deal.
"The UK is going to have to find a way, within the next 12 months, to get back into 'open skies' or to have a bilateral with the EU27, and I think thatís an impossibility," Mr OíLeary told a European parliamentary committee on the impact of Brexit on aviation.
"Thereís no goodwill in Europe towards Britain," he said. "The French and the Germans, whenever they can get the opportunity to stick one to the British, like nothing better."
Mr O'Leary said the Brexit was a "shambles" and the UK government "havenít a bullís notion what theyíre doing" in the negotiations, recalling a senior Brexit minister telling him that an open skies deal with Pakistan could make up for the loss of access to European airspace.
