The UK economic system is clearly struggling. Growth has stalled, rates of interest are going up and the Treasury is softening up the general public for a brand new dose of austerity measures.
For some, the reason for these horrors is easy: Britain is paying the value for its choice to depart the European Union. Forget the impression of essentially the most extreme pandemic in a century. Forget what Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has accomplished to power costs. Brexit is the “gorilla in the room”.
