I thought growth would be at 5% the deficit paid off, all the pot holes filled, 40 new hospitals built and the 40.000 nurses jobs filled. Well I guess Johnson is only part time and he's got children to make. How many is that? the rumour is 12. I think I will be parking a trailor out side number 10 for him to live in for our part time great leader.

Instead we have Cummings and Patel bullying their way through the civil service. I guess they don't like to hear facts from those unelected bureaucrats.
I'm sorry you feel so much pain, Rufus  ;)

Its good to see Ireland and Greece in recovery. I thought brexit land lovers thought it was dust for them and they would leave the Euro. Seems like the ToryUKiPgraph got it all wrong as per usual.

Just wondering is that your paper of choice?

Does anyone think that Brexit may be put off for quite a while, that this current transition period may be extended?

Not only because the respective Governments and EU officials have more pressing matters on their hands but because the UK (and EU) economy will be on the floor and need major efforts to resuscitate them. The added shock of Brexit would be the last thing that businesses would need as they attempt to recover from the impact of the Coronavirus.

It would be completely foolhardy  to continue with the current timeline. That's not to say it won't happen though.
When the truth offends we lie and lie until we can longer remember it is even there. But it is still there. Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later, that debt is repaid

I agree surely we cant do Brexit against this backdrop but i see the government today said they are still continuing for exit in 2020.

Maybe the virus may be the thing that shows we are better off together than apart. I see China flew in respirators and nurses into Italy.
Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.

Maybe it will be the trigger that rips the EU apart.

When it does get done, there's no chance now for Remoaners to provide any irrefutable evidence that it's been bad for the economy. Shame, all that 'remoaning' for nowt 😉

A global pandemic that kills scores of people celebrated by Brexiters because something else also made the economy tank...

I think we can live with scores. Regular flu seasons do way more than that :)

"When even President Macron says supply chains will have to become more French, from food to pharma, then you know globalisation will be in serious retreat in 2020s."

Bring on 'Frexit'  ;D
