Do you worry that our Country seems to be falling apart?
I am thinking of all the closures recently, British Steel. Jamie Oliver, The Patisserie chain, Jaguar/Range Rover, BHS, Debenhams and more I am too tired to remember. Oh! And the vegetable man in our market...but he was chucked out for being rude.
The world is changing, with banks, post offices all on manoeuvres. M&S, John Lewis, all are considering their position.
And the happy result? Roads clogged with white van man delivering from the internet.
What a good idea that is?

Employment in Britain is currently at an all time high, growth is up by 0.5% for the first three months of this year on top of the 0.2% rise for the last three months of 2018 and all stats show that business is booming. Its difficult to know who to believe with such contrasting reports.

All in trouble, one way or another.
Many gone.

Business is booming?

The growth has been down to stockpiling before Brexit and the push by manufacturing companies who export to get orders complete and shipped before Brexit. New orders are waning and export demand is dropping dramatically.

Brexit, and particularly the uncertainty around Brexit, is tearing the country apart on so many levels and it's going to take a while to recover regardless of whether we end up leaving or remaining. The damage has already been done.

Business has been booming long before the days of stockpiling. In fact business has been on the up and up ever since the Brexit referendum. In total contrast to every "so called" expert opinion voiced over the last three years
