    Brexit: planned withdrawal already hitting economic invest

    Brexit: Philip Hammond admits UK's planned withdrawal already hitting economic investment

    Brexit: Philip Hammond admits UK's planned withdrawal already hitting economic investment | The Independent

    Businesses are already pulling investment because of Brexit, the Chancellor has admitted - as he again urged Theresa May to agree a “transitional arrangement”.

    Philip Hammond said a temporary deal with the EU was badly needed to get “businesses investing again”, appearing to acknowledge that companies are currently putting their plans on hold.

    “The thing that is causing concern in the business community is the risk of a cliff edge,” Mr Hammond said.

      I give you a toast, ladies and gentlemen.
      I give you a toast, ladies and gentlemen.
      May this fair dear land we love so well
      In dignity and freedom dwell.
      Though worlds may change and go awry
      While there is still one voice to cry.....

      There'll always be an England
      While there's a country lane,
      Wherever there's a cottage small
      Beside a field of grain.
      There'll always be an England
      While there's a busy street,
      Wherever there's a turning wheel,
      A million marching feet.

      Red, white and blue,
      What does it mean to you?
      Surely you're proud, shout it aloud,
      "Britons, awake!"
      The empire too, we can depend on you.
      Freedom remains.
      These are the chains
      Nothing can break.

      There'll always be an England,
      And England shall be free
      If England means as much to you
      As England means to me.

        I guess it's pretty much par for the course that the response to the economic impact of the upcoming departure of the UK from the EU is to quote the lyrics of a jingoistic song which conflates England and Britain, recalls the Empire, and does nothing at all to deal with the matter actually at hand.

          Thinking this through and assuming the UK does go for Hard Brexit. Since the lack of investment is due to the fear of "Hard Brexit" what could possibly change for the better. What would be the advantage of a Japanese company setting up in the UK to export to the Eu when it has 160 other countries to choose from who have their own "Hard Brexit" agreements, notwithstanding the 27 countries with extreme Soft Brexits.

            "Some of my British friends have even asked me whether Brexit could be reversed and whether I could imagine an outcome where the UK stays part of the EU.

            "I told them that, in fact, the European Union was built on dreams that seemed impossible to achieve. So, who knows. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one."

              You're taking it too literally. It was in response to PG's posting lyrics with slight tongue-in-cheek. Perhaps reflect on your response which was par for the course?

                Why invest when it's clear that in the next election Red Korbyn will get a landslide? Tories also will be taxing again - it's lose-lose scenario, ppus that Brexit thingy.

                  Yawn. Eye of the beholder and all that. PG's quote had the benefit of being (a) at least a half-decent song, and (b) just one line rather than choosing to cut & paste the entire lyrics.
