How depressingly ordinary. :tired

I kind of semi-agree, there won't be complete disaster.
Rather with a lower trend growth rate (maybe after a period of recession), everyone will be sligtly poorer (some much more so) , the already dirty streets will be dirtier, the already stretched NHS will be more stretched, the bad roads will get worse, perma-austerity will be the case.
The poor will get poorer, the rich richer, the south will be OK, the North won't.
The pound may recover a bit but won't reach its June 2016 level.
Invest in staycation companies, burglar alarm companies and private healthcare companies.

More drizzly rain, low grey clouds rubbish blowing around the streets, and the carpets in the pub will be stickier.

It's a watered down vision of Orwell's premonition (Coming up for Air - written 1938/39) of Britain at war.

I looked forward a few years. I saw this street as it'll be in
five years' time, say, or three years' time (1941 they say it's
booked for), after the fighting's started.


No, not all smashed to pieces. Only a little altered, kind of
chipped and dirty-looking, the shop-windows almost empty and so
dusty that you can't see into them. Down a side street there's an
enormous bomb-crater and a block of buildings burnt out so that it
looks like a hollow tooth. Thermite. It's all curiously quiet,
and everyone's very thin. A platoon of soldiers comes marching up
the street. They're all as thin as rakes and their boots are
dragging. The sergeant's got corkscrew moustaches and holds
himself like a ramrod, but he's thin too and he's got a cough that
almost tears him open. Between his coughs he's trying to bawl at
them in the old parade-ground style. 'Nah then, Jones! Lift yer
'ed up! What yer keep starin' at the ground for? All them fag-
ends was picked up years ago.' Suddenly a fit of coughing catches
him. He tries to stop it, can't, doubles up like a ruler, and
almost coughs his guts out. His face turns pink and purple, his
moustache goes limp, and the water runs out of his eyes.

Just remember - there's beauty in decay. That said, rundown modern architecture won't have the same romance as the Victorian stuff.

I think the worst part is all the flipping threads about it day in day out. The topic really needs its own forum now.

Orwell never even predicted the biro.

What he and you and, needless to say, sasguru are missing while gloating over the supposed perma-decline of the UK is the army of robots that will keep everything spick and span :D

1. I'm not gloating.
2. Robots will be expensive, better to use the vast army of useless scrotes we possess.
I've never understood why able bodied people who claim the dole or HB are not put to work on social projects like cleaning up litter etc.
It prepares them for the world of paid work after all.

The Brexit Economy:
the storm clouds are gathering (https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/oct/24/the-brexit-economy-the-storm-clouds-are-gathering)

voila, some doom


Guardian analysis of key economic figures paints a picture of deepening gloom, with rising inflation denting consumer spending and investment

There is so much that eludes you that it ought to have a forum of its own!
