0.6% is not correct. Even if i was, it would be a big loss. something like £15bl?

Fishing is the perfect excuse for the UK to torpedo a deal, as it is one area where it is clear to everyone sensible (except those who follow the doctrine of EU infallibility) that the EU's position is unreasonable.

Also it is a difficult area for Sturgeon as once we have control of our EEZ, in order to rejoin the EU Scotland will need to give back control of their EEZ. This is something that they may find hard to do. It may be a small matter economically, but fishing and water rights are highly important politically and to a countries sense of self. I believe fishing rights are the main reason Norway hasn't joined the EU

Yep, it's always been a bizarre element of the EU that a country is required to give up rights to a natural resource in its' waters.

But, as much as I think leaving the EU is dumb idea, I don't think the UK is 'torpedoing; a deal. It's simply that any deal, that is now acceptable to the EU, is incompatible with what is acceptable to the UK. It was always going to be the case, despite all the lies we were told by the Leave campaign (that we could easily do a deal - oven ready and all that).

I’m referencing the BOE reports.

It’s about 6% over a decade.

I’m right , you’re wrong again.

Also your big loss is 15 billion from 2.8 trillion . Your inability to make a sensible comparison once again exposed.

Soft Brexit would cost 3.1% of GDP. Hard Brexit an additional 3.9%

Cost of the operation: £134bl per year - More than the NHS budget.

You are talking shit, again.

Only in your insane mind is £15BL short change.

It would cost that over 10 years not every yea and from turnover not payments (not comparable with the annual budget)

r.. Or as I said 0.6% a year.

That’s 15 from 2,800 .....

Or not a lot.

You should have just accepted you don’t really grasp the numbers rather than prove my point,

The figures for no deal vary greatly but I'm sure the 0.6% quoted by Bimbot (I assume he means drop in GDP) is, shock horror, absolute bollocks.

6-7% of GDP over 10 years. Much harsher than most on your “long term” forecasts above. You think it’s not even that much. :shock:

The predictions on the graph are mainly lower drops than the 6% I used. These predictions are all over long time frame with cumulative totals.

Bizarre that fishing grabs the headlines while Financial Services are where the real loses will happen for both the UK and EU. :?

It's a visible win for the UK if conceded by the EU, at what cost?

ed. Or the opposite which is what both sides really need.

The Brexit problem of giving away fishing rights in UK waters is complicated by the irrational nationalism Brexit was founded on.

No Deal Brexit ?

2016 Referendum
predictions "totally and utterly absurd"
predictors: "pessimists and merchants of doom"

2019 election campaign
"absolutely guarantee we will get a deal"
"a great deal";
"an oven ready deal"

As this is a rugby forum, how do you think Brexit will impact rugby? Will France, Italy and Ireland clubs get more powerful? Will English, Welsh and Scottish clubs get weaker?

I wonder also if it will stem the flow of players from the SH to the NH?

Stupid act of self harm in any case.


They’re over a decade not 1 year though. You can see them above on the graph of “long term” predictions.
Not in the study I have read.

The rest of the world is borrowing less proportional..... by some measure.

The rest of the world didn’t start as in debt as the UK.
