You do have to laugh at the desperation of the Brexit mob...

The article claims that the mount of venture capital raised in 2020 was 11 billion, whilst a trillion pounds left the UK because of Brexit. :rofl:

And what are the types of thing this venture capital is funding? A gambling company, 5 online banks that are all losing money, and an online retailer that's only made a profit since COVID. :rolleyes:

You couldn't make it up!

Any proof of this ? If so , please provide evidence. Or , is it another Air Miles fairytale among many you've made during your terrible BDS ordeal ?

It's the new Brexiteer way... don't like hearing about reality, so let's just try and rubbish the evidence that you could just as easily go and find for yourself. :rolleyes:

For that matter, when did the Brexiteers ever feel the need to come-up with any actual facts to justify their ridiculous claims, but just for you...

Now maybe you could come up with some evidence that shows how much better Brexit has been for the beef and dairy industry, as you promised it would be...? :D

I had the misfortune to watch The Eurovision Song Contest. I have contacted OFCOM in disgust. Amanda Holden wasn't showing any cleavage or bare flesh !

Brexit. The gift that keeps on giving.

Latest Brexit data - trade in goods with EU countries decreased 23.1% comparing Q1 2021 to Q1 2018. Trade with non-EU countries decreased 0.8%. Shocking figures far worse than the worst case scenario. Thousands of U.K. businesses in dire straights or already gone bust.

That's comparing this year with 2018. Was there a coronavirus pandemic back then?

And why pick 2018?

Ask the govt. It’s their trade figures they have released. Read the release.

The UK government clearly didn't understand what it actually agreed. You only have to look at the nonsensical pronouncements of Liz Truss to realise that...

https://www.theneweuropean.co.uk/brexit-news/westminster-news/liz-truss-on-brexit-deal-lbc-radio-7995688

If even the Trade Secretary doesn't understand how customs zones work and why there has to be a customs border in the North Sea, then there really is little hope. She's just making herself look incredibly stupid in the eyes of the world, although it'll no doubt be lapped up by the Brexit brigade who always believed in pixies, fairies and leprechauns anyway. :rolleyes: 

Meanwhile, the totally out-of-her-depth Trade Secretary agrees to free trade with Australia.. erm.. in 15 years time whilst also claiming that UK food standards won't be compromised. Does she think everyone is as stupid as her...?
