The consequences of Brexit

You have to hand it to the EU – preferably with the shitty end of a rather long stick. They really haven’t got a bloody clue, have they?

This week saw a remarkable set of own goals by the Fourth Reich. Whilst the leaders of Italy, France and der Fatherland were meeting to discuss what the bloody hell to do now that Britain has voted to kick them into touch, our friend Herr Juncker – who they are trying desperately to make the scapegoat for our decision – decided to make a statement saying that all borders would be done away with and that the EU needed to make a stand against nationalism! I bet the Dutch loved that one…

Meanwhile, to quote Harold MacMillan, Britain has never had it so good.

The Confederation of British Industry said its retail sales volume index rose to +9 – its highest since February and a massive increase from -14 in July. Employment hit a record high of 74.5% and the UK’s net wealth hit £8.8trillion.

The latest house prices data showed the industry defying warnings of a housing market crash after Brexit, with shares rising in housebuilding firms. There’s been a jump in reservations by buyers of new homes over the past two months despite some surveys suggesting the so-called Brexit vote could cool the housing market.

In fact, the country that seems to have been hit hardest by the Brexit vote is, ironically, not Britain but Germany. The German economy is slowing markedly and Merkel is trying to shrug it all off as just a summer slump. Confidence indicators in Germany are at their lowest level since 2014. While the FTSE goes up, the German DAX is dropping. In fact, all the indicatorS prove just how much we were being ripped off for by the Reich and why so many prominent German industrialistS desperately Wanted us to remain in Europe.

And with the refugee crisis and Jihadi attacks on the increase, Merkel is reeling under the pressure of her open door policy. The last thing she wanted to hear with an election looming is Herr Junckers views on abolishing borders.

No, all in all Britain is doing alright thank you very much and the Germans are bricking it. Personally, I’m loving it!

Altogether now :

Two world wars and one world cup
Brexit! Brexit!

  1. The problem is that the Remain group could only publish negatives as a way of persuading us to stay in.
    The Brexiteers ((yuk – what a horrible made-up word) were able to use lots of positives to tell it like it is.
    Those of us who are old enough to remember how things were before the EU knew that we’d be fine.
    The younger folk, who have never lived in a competitive world, doing deals with any country who had something we wanted, or wanted to buy what we had, heard all the negatives, shat their underwear, and promoted the negative hype the way a four-year-old promotes the “anti-monster-under-the-bed” bullshit that Mum and Dad give him.
    We will be absolutely fine on our own – we did it for the 200 years leading to EU membership, we’ll do it again following Brexit
    The only downside is that unless it happens quickly, us oldies may miss out on the grand sight of the EU in general, and Germany in particular, sliding into oblivion – or at the very least, total obscurity!

    • Yup, it was the positive nature of the campaign (allied with the Remain side being utterly negative) that did it.

      For all their real and perceived faults, the Jerries have tried hard since 1945 to atone for their sins and to make Germany a fully functioning democracy. I won’t knock ’em for that. It is however because of their history that they have tried to use the EU to make themselves model Europeans. The problem strangely enough is not Germany. The threat to all European nations comes from the EU and c*nts like Juncker who really do hate nation states. Once Europe is free of the EU, it will be a much better and safer place. Remember that Farage said that we are doing this not so much for ourselves (Brexit) but for all European nations – to show that the EU yoke can be thrown off.

      • Juncker actually came out the other day and said that there should be no borders and no nations. The man is clearly dangerously deluded!

      • Yup! But what do you expect – you cannot possibly aspire to a position like his if you are anywhere within touching distance of sanity.
        Any way, now we’re (almost) out, all we have to do is keep an eye on the normalcy rating of our own politicians, and that’s a full time job anyway!

  2. I’m not sure that any of our economic good news could be claimed to be due to the Brexit vote. After all, apart from a massive clear out of ineffectual politicians, there don’t yet seem to be any actual consequences yet. We don’t seem to be showing any inclination to move toward the door at all. Still, I can see that any multinational company would see the advantage of setting up here when we are no longer carrying a massive unelected government machine like a millstone around our necks.

    • It’s true that Brexit hasn’t made things better, but the point is that it hasn’t resulted in the catastrophe that Cameron and Osborne were trying to sell us before the vote.

      It sure as hell hasn’t done a lot for the Germans tho’

  3. There are some wonderful tweets on this at the moment, quite satirical.
