    I haven't had my test drive yet.
  2. So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    Why are you asking me?
  3. So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

  4. So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    Is there a descriptive noun for someone who delights/revels in experts failing to accurately predict an outcome?
  5. So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    Really? That's a bit of a convenient simplification.

    In full without redaction or editing? Where's the rest of the 80 or so page document then?

    I note that does not answer my previous post and just attempts to divert inconvenient gaze.

    A fair point but if hysteria was the only issue it would have burned out long before now. Again, taken in convenient isolation that is true, however it is not overdue for the reasons it is starting to rise now and the implications that will have. That prediction goes against acknowledged expert view and is entirely an opinion, like religion, based on faith. If you now reject any expert view because you can cherry pick an expert view that wasn't correct, you might as well use the DM straight bananas or 'account not signed off tripe' too.

    With the exception of the sterling downturn (which was immediately much worse than predicted), you have conveniently ignored every single downturn issue that has been caused by the vote that did not exactly fit Osborne's warning. However you have highlighted those which he did predict that have not/are yet to happen such as: House price drop, emergency budget, recession etc. Unemployment (although I think the high employment figure atm are not indicative of the true picture for various reasons). Growth is a a complex issue as we are in an unusual low sterling yet still in the EU scenario which clearly will be quite different following brexit. I'd call that cherry picking if you, at the same time, suggest that no down turn at all has happened since the vote.

    Do you think I'm daft enough to spend time cutting and pasting bits from your posts of the last 12 hours?

    Yep that hysteria caused the immediate currency devaluation didn't it which is now, amongst other things is precipitating inflation and base rate rise for the first time in a decade.

    I am agreeing nothing of the sort Manximus You have cherry picked incorrect aspects of his predications conveniently ignoring everything else. You can remarkably predict the future too.

    Of course the timescale is wrong but even the most myopically optimistic would be hard pressed to think we are not in a significantly worst place now than 18 months ago with uncertainty likely to increase. Perhaps if everything is so rosy, you ought to be asking why the doomed gov is keeping the worst of the bad news back. As for not getting the accounts signed off for 20 years, are you going to mention straight bananas next and loose all credibility? I bet Corbyn thanks his lucky starts every day he didn't win and have to sort this mess out.

    'End of' usually indicates a closed mind and a lack of desire or inability to consider anything other than your view. Hardly helpful on a forum where exchange of views and debate are the norm.
