The only possible blame is Brexit Umm, the EU has been having food price inflation too. previousHark at what the man is complaining about nownextThese people are seriously insane 19 thoughts on “Snigger” Dennis, Asking The Tough Questions So You Don't Have To July 19, 2023 at 12:01 pm Is there anything Brexit can’t do? Boganboy July 19, 2023 at 12:32 pm No Dennis!!! Addolff July 19, 2023 at 1:01 pm If only we had remained in the EU our economy would be booming now as much as the Krauts: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-65707206. It’s precisely because of cunts like Murphy we haven’t had the Brexit we voted for. Yet. Dennis, Inconveniently Noting Reality July 19, 2023 at 1:15 pm It’s precisely because of cunts like Murphy we haven’t had the Brexit we voted for. I’m pretty sure Murphy doesn’t vote Tory. Bloke in Wales July 19, 2023 at 1:49 pm I’m pretty sure Murphy doesn’t vote Tory. You really think he practises what he preaches? Van_Patten July 19, 2023 at 2:07 pm The man is an even bigger cretin than was thought possible. Unparalleled in the history of mankind. Addolff July 19, 2023 at 2:29 pm Dennis @ 1.15, it’s nothing to do with who anyone votes for. TPTB here in Blighty and on the incontinent did not want Brexit so will do everything they possibly can to fuck it up. They are winning thus far. Hopefully, (and boy i’m hoping) although we may currently be losing the battle, we will end up winning the war. Dennis, Clear-Eyed As Always July 19, 2023 at 2:30 pm You really think he practises what he preaches? Given that what he preaches changes by the quarter hour, I doubt any of us (or Murphy himself, for that matter) will ever know for sure. john77 July 19, 2023 at 5:41 pm THere is a war going on in the world’s second-largest exporter of grain, so Kenya and Ethiopia and Somalia are starving (partly thanks to a drought but also to the shortage of Ukrainian wheat) – world food prices have risen but Myrphy claims our food problems are solely a result of Brexit. There used to be a rule that one should not attribute to malice that which can be attributed to stupidity but I feel this is an example of where one cannot rationally attribute it to stupidity. jgh July 19, 2023 at 8:54 pm I thought we had an obesity crisis. The solution is clearly to make food more expensive to price it out of the range of purchasers. dearieme July 19, 2023 at 9:25 pm Ambrose was in form this morning. “Inflation is stuck at 9.3pc. The currency is in free-fall, probing all-time lows against the euro. The economy has been in stagflation for five quarters. Household debt exploded to an all-time high of 98pc of GDP in the madness of the Covid credit boom. The property bubble has since burst. House prices have fallen by 16pc. The central bank is raising interest rates into the teeth of the storm but markets suspect that rate-setters – succumbing to ‘mortgage dominance’ – are holding back because they dare not inflict more pain on debtors. The financial regulator said households had “never been under so much pressure”. ” Then he reveals it’s Sweden he’s describing. Oh look, you can have economic troubles in a non-Brexit country. Boganboy July 20, 2023 at 12:50 am ‘I thought we had an obesity crisis. The solution is clearly to make food more expensive to price it out of the range of purchasers.’ Thank you jgh!!! DiscoveredJoys July 20, 2023 at 6:57 am Damn. I thought the only possible blame was World War II, or possibly World War I, or possibly the Black Death. Though notably the Pandemic and Climate Change are apparently blameless. formertory July 20, 2023 at 7:04 am @DiscoveredJoys – completely agree, but may I point out that – unaccountably – you missed out Fatcha? Innit! Southerner July 20, 2023 at 7:27 am The Yonited States has terrible food price inflation too and they exited 247 years ago. Exiting can have serious long-lasting consequences but naturally the US can fix that by rejoining the UK. Addolff July 20, 2023 at 7:37 am Southerner @ 7.27 – as Mr Cholmondley-Warner and Grayson pointed out back in the day – with New York renamed Chiddingfold-on-Sea. It’s a very funny clip about what life would be like in 1990, but at just over 3 minutes long may be too much to comprehend for those with the attention span of a goldfish. Skip to the 3 minute mark for the relevance to the comment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gou1cspUfdY Jim July 20, 2023 at 9:36 am Given the price of wheat is down from a peak of over £300/tonne to just over £200/tonne, and milk is down from a peak of over 50p/litre to under 40p/litre, what food price inflation? Its all just profiteering by the retailers and processors. Bloke in the Fourth Reich July 20, 2023 at 6:59 pm “The currency is in free-fall, probing all-time lows against the euro” This (at least the second part) is as much fantasy as global temperatures. Unlike global temperatures, it’s easy to check out. Charles July 21, 2023 at 6:55 pm @Addolff – “we haven’t had the Brexit we voted for” You have the Brexit you voted for. There was only one Brexit option on the ballot, so if you voted for that thinking that it meant more than mere exit from the EU, then that’s your fault for not understanding what you voted for. Brexit means Brexit. No more, and no less. Leave a ReplyYour email address will not be published.
