A few months back and the meeja was telling us Christmas was cancelled due to Brexit, no turkeys or Brussels Sprouts toys or presents.

Ironically many people are looking at a huge bird and wondering how they will eat it as family and friends have decided not to come due to COVID.

As for the Brussels Sprouts, a few years ago Andy Jacobs on Talksport pointed out that every year just before Christmas there was a scare story about sprouts and he said whoever does the PR for them should get a bonus. Well he's right they've done it again, anyway somehow the sprouts made it out of the ground and into the shops on time so thousands of kids can say eeeh Brussels Sprouts.

If COVID hasn't put you off traveling to loved ones well public transport will, strikes, cancellations due to staff sickness, TFL budget cuts, and engineering works.

Anyway I hope you and yours have a jolly holly holiday.

Merry Christmas

I hope we don't. I loathe all that 'tit for tat' nonsense that achieves nothing. If we are going to play hard ball with them, then let's do it on things that truly matter and where it can make a real difference

The UK needs to be open to tourism. It is a sector that employs a lot of people and there is nothing to be gained by making people pay for this kind of VISA. And if the EU want to ensure even more Brits go to places like Turkey and Egypt then that is down to them.

As others have said, in the greater scheme of things then its pennies but it shows how little the EU truly care about its regions that depend on UK tourism. Brits piss a lot of money up EU walls in the summer and boost economies. If the EU do seek to endanger that then it only bodes ill for them.

Prediction from 100 economists published in January 2021:

"Economists expect the UK economic recovery in 2021 to be slower than in peer countries, because of a lower starting point, a larger services sector, low business investment and the impact of Brexit.

A survey of nearly 100 economists revealed that most of them expect the size of the economy not to return to pre-pandemic levels until the third quarter of 2022, despite the expectation of a strong consumer-led rebound from the rollout of the coronavirus vaccine. Increased unemployment, bankruptcies and the impact of Brexit are expected to limit the pace of the recovery."

[Link]

What has actually happened (January 2022):

"The UK has regained its pre-pandemic levels of GDP long before Germany, Italy, and Spain, and slightly before the eurozone as a whole. It is ahead of Japan and Canada.

This is a remarkable outcome when you think that the OECD forecast a year ago that Britain would limp into 2022 with output still 6.4pc below its pre-Covid peak, an economic basket case languishing along with Argentina at the bottom of the developed world's league table.

The International Monetary Fund also predicted that the UK would be left behind in perma-slump through 2021 and into 2022. The global institutions got it seriously wrong."

The media and politicians put too much faith into these economic bodies. Remember the anti Brexit head of the IMF predicting disaster for the UK.

Economists try to predict the future but they cannot foresee the unexpected which happens all to often. Some of what they say makes sense the headlines however are normally based on voodoo.

Basically, if your greengrocers shop is closed, then you re-open it, and sell a banana, your GDP has just risen 100%.

You should work for the EU. They do it that way but much bigger, if you start with nothing, debt in fact, and just print some money then everyone is well off. However, at least our bananas will have the correct curvature. Yours will be straighter, handy for some I guess.
Can't imagine where this pesky inflation is coming from. Better print twice as much.
