Brexit will send Britain tumbling from fifth to eighth in the world’s economic league table by the end of the next decade – a worrying new economic analysis has found.
(ed:..brexit was the first of those two inarticulate/ill thought out screams of rage from the disposessed against the failings of neoliberalism/globalisation – that so defined 2016..
what is now interesting me is how will our one here in new zealand play out ? — both the greens and winston peters/nz first are hoping they will be the ‘winners’ – but i am picking that gareth morgan and his new party will be the main benificiaries of (hopefully a more articulate/thought out) scream of rage from these parts/from our disposessed/’missing-million’ voters – we are certainly overdue for one..
..and still for me one of the most jaw-dropping moments in nz political punditry-fail of 2016 wasn’t that gaggle of them sitting around sneering at the possibility of trump beating clinton – this on Q&A – about seven days before trump did his trouncing (i haven’t bothered with any of those political-pundit shows since then – they clearly don’t know shit..)..
though this was a worthy contender for the gong – it goes/went to labours’ chief pollster on rnz – who sneered at the very idea that new zealand even had a ‘missing-million’ disposessed voters – ready/preparing to evacuate their lungs –
– and if labour are listening to him/taking his/this advice – and just plan on continuing with their incrementalist ways – they are in serious trouble..)
Analysts at the Centre for Economic and Business Research (Cebr) found that the country’s economic prospects will be damaged by Brexit’s negative impact on the value of the pound.
