12.5% have they gone barmy??? No bloody comment… Wages didn’t increase 12.5%
Clearly the low pound it’s a lot better for Europeans, ( I live in Italy) to me didn’t make any change I always bought from chef’s or Depot, with the pound low I can afford one more flavor, but not much more than that.
As you already said can’t take London as a standard for comparison, but I’d like to see how the outskirts are coping, not well I’d think, but Increase on costs, unemployment or politicians doing their own business it’s world wide, not just UK.
Talking about the Brexit
I’m a brit living in Italy now and when the brexit thing came out I really didn’t know what to think, on one side, with nagging withdrawals, blockage on milk meat and products from the EU, I thought it was a good thing to get out as fast as possible, on the other I I thought that this is an economic suicide, costs on import/export of spare parts not made in the UK are bound to increase, with a low pound, investors outside in the UK would be like vultures looking for a cheap assets not to build new ones because the risk would be too high, and going out of the EU would destroy a worldwide trust infrastructure built in years, you can’t stand alone…
What would the best thing to do once out of the EU? Invest and become strong again with your own hands.
England doesn’t invest on new startup and new technologies, you know pharma, nanotechnology analytics and so forth… or if they do… soooo slooooooowly… therefore, things aren’t and will not move, wages will be the same, no new investments, people will lose their jobs… as stright forward as that.
Living in the EU and away from home is not nice, I’m always in touch with my brother (Cardiff) who works for Tata steel and at 57 he’s not sure about his future, that is not nice!
What have those politicians in mind next to improve and get stronger… cancel Customs Union?
But… there’s a but, we’re suicidal maniacs, stubborn (I’d bet that those that have voted pro Brexit, would do it again), love to have our things in our hands and basically don’t trust anybody else.
So we’ll stand (alone) by what we voted untill death… (do us part??)
This is my look at things from the outside, I didn’t vote, because at today I still wouldn’t know which side is/was right or which side is/was wrong…
Are you wrong?? Don’t think so…sad innit?
