    Appreciate you don't need to apologise that would be the job of Mr Johnson as he quite categorically stated that the economic outlook would not be worse, still it would be helpful for me to understand as I know a nurse back in the UK who is struggling and can pass your comments on.
    Cojak is way to clever to say anything on Brexit.

    However I would like to say that the gap between rich and poor has been getting bigger since 1933. And will carry on getting bigger. And Brexit will make it worse.

    Tell your nurse friend to never ever vote Tory/Labour again. Even if Korbyn gets in he will turn into Blair. This country needs better politicians and bankers.

    I work for a bank. Its incredibly inefficient. How do they stay in business? Its a monopoly.
    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.

    Here's a fact for your tiny brain, Simon's opinion is just that, an opinion, not a fact.

    That's true, except what I said was indeed a fact. Like all my opinions.

    So your telling me that Brexit was not responsible for the pound dropping and hence causing inflation to rise ?
    I'm not following this idiot

    Its a cartel, but point taken. And very true.

    As to the gap between rich and poor, so what? Surely a more pertinent question is "has the standard of living increased for everyone since 1933 or whatever". The answer is undeniably yes. The poor today have untold riches compared to the poor of 1933. Lets say the gap between rich and poor was only 50%. Would that be good if we were all scrabbling around in the dirt trying to eek out an existence?

    Societies in which the gap between rich and poor are small are the most contented.

    For a while the mob can be placated with cheap booze and flat screen TVs.

    spoken like a multi-millionaire

    The modern global economy has brought billions of people out of poverty. The only 'sufferers' (for want of a better word) are the lower middle class, and working class in the G7 countries. The ones who ironically voted for something that will harm them the most in any case.
