The funny thing is that kippers and delusional hacks like Mr Spence in the Telegraph yesterday look at all those containers being loaded at the Port of Felixstowe bound for the EU and the rest of the world and think they are all full of British quality goods for export. Well I know someone who actually loads them and he assures me most of them are empty!
Some of them go on to Germany for them to fill up. After all they sold what, 75 Billion worth of goods to China? About ten times what Britain sells.
So how does Britain finance it’s never ending trade gap with the EU and most of the rest of the world? By selling the family silver and expensive London Real estate. And thanks to an anonymous commenter sergebonduel we now also know that the Tory government is secretly continuing to hide the UK’s trade deficit and never ending trade failures by selling gold to the Chinese via Switzerland to the tune of 2 Billion a year.
But hey. always look on the bright side. Britain is not bust yet. The crash and devaluation of Sterling will happen long after brexit and the ones that caused it will be sipping Martinis on their yachts in Monaco by then.
