    Whereas the UK’s deficit on trade in goods and services widened by £2.3 billion to £4.9 billion in March 2017. Imports increased in the month by £2.9 billion to a new record high of £53.9 billion. Exports increased by £0.6 billion to £49.0 billion. It's very odd as our Brexiteer friend s assured us that the more compeititive steling would mean that the UK would export more and import less. But it seems that importas are just costing more. Probably just international élite / EUSSR propaganda.

    So the silver lining of Brexit is that it is trashing the Irish economy as well as the UK economy?

    Perhaps you need to speak to your buddies in the EU because it will be they who decide your fate.

    So nothing to do with Brexit, then?

    Interesting you've stopped defending the impact on the UK's economy. Probably for the best.

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.
