The dip in GDP was a consequence of business's buying in the first quarter more than they required to mitigate the March leaving date. Those stocks have now been run down giving the figures the false perception of a downturn..
    Correct. But all the brexitists were screaming that the uplift in the March figures were a vindication of no deal.

    The UK economy as whole is in limbo and has been for 3 years. This is due to political will or lack of it. Once people come to their senses, a deal will be made, this could happen either side of the departure. Its irrelevant who will hurt most, all will suffer for the political stupidity of people following their own agenda. Democracy has to win at the end of the day otherwise you just have a dictatorship, Maybe the EU are happy with that?

    It is more to do with businesses leaving the UK and the general uncertainty caused by Brexit. But according to you presumably Germany where the economy slowed to -0.1% suffers the same "political stupidity" which also accounts for the bond rate inversion.

    I think there are many reasons why the German economy is slowing. Not least their heavy investment into Diesel and their various manufacturing companies carrying out blatant fraud in America. China's economy slowing. Brexit doesn't need to be a problem for Germany, that's a choice the Germans will have to make.
