It's also weird to say it's nothing to do with Brexit when the country was heading into recession before Covid came along and hid some of the economic failings of Brexit. For sure the short term costs (and thus borrowings) fall more one side than t'other as regards Covid Vs Brexit, but there's no way these things aren't interconnected

And thanks to the Tories the UK is miles behind across public services and infrastructure capital spending going into this crisis so we're particularly badly placed to come out of the other side

We weren’t head into a recession at the turn of the year. Premise fail.

22% fall vs 0.6% fall aren’t comparable either.

New UCL/LSE report estimating possible FDI falls of 37% due to Brexit. Up from 25% previously.

Interestingly, if unsurprisingly, the EU SM rather than mere membership or NAFTA-style multilateral trade agreements, was seen as the key driver of FDI.

UCL/LSE report indeed records that the 2018 FDI level fell by about 38% from the 2017 level.

Thank you for your link from EY. There isn't one single figure stating a financial value in it.

It's sales puff. But you know that, don't you?

You claim that you have linked this?

The EY report contains not one single financial value. It refers to a 5% increase in the "number" of FDI "projects" (where the UK was knocked off top spot for the first time since 1994 - in this case by France).

I've seen estimated decrease figures for UK FDI in 2019 over freefall 2018, never mind 2017 (itself a massive fall over 2016).

I'll have my socks blown off if you link anything that supports your statement that FDI "values rose in 2019 above 2017 levels"

Another useless numbskull!
One of the main areas where Brexit has wrecked havoc is with the British language. Words are meant to have a clear meaning. With Brexit, it’s not always so.

There was a good example this morning on LBC where Alok Sharma, the business secretary, argued that a no-deal Brexit - which is normally now taken as meaning a Brexit involving a trade deal with the EU - is in fact a Brexit with a deal, but just a different sort of deal.

Sharma made the argument often made by ministers that the UK does, in fact, have a deal, because it signed the withdrawal agreement deal.

But then he went further. When the presenter, Nick Ferrari, put it to him that the Australia-style deal that the PM now talks about is just another way of referring to no-deal, Sharma replied:

The Australia deal is a deal that you have with countries where you are predominantly working on a sort of WTO basis.
The exchange went on:

NF: So it’s a no-deal?

AS: Depends. You can use the phrase no deal but the point is it is a deal …

Ferrari asked Sharma twice more to explain the difference between the Australia arrangement and no-deal, before Sharma eventually said:

It’s a question of semantics at the end of the day, sure.

We were shown something along these lines recently, but all the BEIS had done was split out the investments into a greater number of underlying spends, so whilst the sum/value was down they were claiming a greater amount of investments.

Similarly they'd taken away a checklist going back sometime wherein they were charged with reducing risks in a number of areas, and last week they came back with a much reduced number of risks. But all the wankers had done in essence was to consolidate some of the risks, claiming (a) that was justifiable because essentially all the risks had an underlying basis of cost and (b) consolidating the list was evidence they'd responded to the need to reduce the number of risks. To say their commentary went over well would not be true. Actually that call was funnier still because during it they were still saying they were going to get a deal at pretty much the precise moment Boris went live to say it was no deal.

Worth also noting of this group giving such an appalling briefing that was a mix of nonsense, delay and drivel are mostly contractors to various government agencies each billing over £200k per annum and charging up a shit load in expenses, though sadly for them they've been known to complain the big problem with their current role is how hard it is to get out to restaurants and bars to really take advantage of their expenses, and they cannot travel so easily into and out of London if based in say Bath or Leeds

Just shows how much pressure he is under, they are clearly not stumbling over everything, in many areas they have reached agreement.

He's refusing to negotiate and has been since the start... that's pretty much a closed door.
