Brexit has brought no benefits AT ALL to the UK, say industry leaders

People like Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage, who demanded Brexit with promises of “sunlit uplands” and prosperity afterwards, were speaking “on a wing and a prayer”, according to industrialists.

They said the UK has enjoyed no benefits – at all – as a result of leaving the European Union.

Manufacturers’ representative organisation Make UK said 17 per cent of UK exporters are no longer trading as exporters due to Brexit and that there has been a 50 per cent fall in food and drink exports.

The fall in exports to the EU could become structural – and permanent, it said.

And it warned that, with major changes coming, especially the imposition of import controls, it is vital that government works with business and the EU to smooth out critical issues such as customs procedures.

But this seems unlikely, considering the monumental failures by Boris Johnson’s lackadaisical and haphazard Tory government so far: only last week we learned that UK manufacturing including cars and fridges could face severely disrupted supply chains because the government failed to replace the EU’s safety standards system post-Brexit.

This is elementary stuff – and Johnson’s amateur politicians missed it.

The government itself has admitted that the chaos it caused by its own deliberate actions (or lack of them) was “not the desired outcome”. What did Johnson and his dimwitted cronies expect?

Actually, it seems that the claim at the top of this piece isn’t entirely true. One person benefited hugely from Brexit…

As for the rest of us… well, we get to express our own opinions in our own ways…

… and the international media community is having its own fun at our expense:
