    In other news, tomorrow Parliament gets to vote on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill which will overturn the 1972 European Communities Act which took the UK into the then European Economic Community.
    EU laws will be converted to British Laws.

    Not quite. Tomorrow's vote is for the second reading, a procedural vote enabling the bill as a whole to proceed. After that there's the committee stage, where every part of the bill is considered on a clause-by-clause basis. Then there's the report stage, where the house as a whole consider the outcome of the committee stage. Then there's the final straight up-or-down third reading vote.

    And then it goes to the Lords where they go through the same process but with far fewer restrictions and conventions on how much they're allowed to fuck with the bill.

    And then it goes back to the commons and is further amended until the Lords and Commons agree, or it goes through enough cycles to trigger the Parliament Act.

    And then it goes to Liz.

    If only! (i wasn't actually bullshitting on that, but spin on it, like it matters)

    I don't think she'll be around by the time it goes through the cycles, just my opinion.

    You mean the bill that lets a minister join the euro on a whim if they want?

    Corbyn will have a field day with it after the next election.

    ‘No sign’ of return to healthier UK economic growth, BCC warns
    https://www.ft.com/content/d16bb47c-...a-eda243196c2c (pay)

    The fall in sterling following last year’s EU referendum has failed to boost UK economic growth, the British Chambers of Commerce said on Friday.

    The business group — which represents thousands of companies employing more than 5m people across the UK — said there was “no sign on the horizon of a return to healthier levels of growth” as it published its latest quarterly forecasts.

    The pessimistic outlook stems from the BCC’s assessment that the disappointing economic response to sterling’s fall since last year’s EU referendum will continue. Politicians and economists had previously hoped that the weak pound would boost British exports.

    “The rising upfront cost of doing business in the UK, the uncertainty around Brexit, and the constraints created by skills gaps and shoddy infrastructure collectively outweigh any benefit arising from the recent depreciation of sterling,” said Adam Marshall, director-general of the BCC. “A cheaper currency does not automatically mean an export boom, no matter how some politicians and commentators will it to happen.”

    SHORT TERM ECONOMIC PAIN

    TALKING THE COUNTRY DOWN

    what's more interesting is where the hammer will fall. Services are being shrunk by retarded austerity practices, so that's not surprising. Private investment is unlikely to drop universally though.

    wouldn't worry tbh.

    All the current nurses are leaving due to either being overworked or due to returning home courtesy of brexit uncertainties regarding immigration
    The requirement changes for new foreign applicants are now considered much too difficult, so foreign nurses from outside the EU now go to canada, australia etc
    There are significantly fewer domestics students starting to study nursing due to removal of bursaries, alongside low future wage prospects and widely advertised shitty working conditions.

    so we're all going to get ill and die. no need to worry about trivial things like the economy after all.

    So I've seen conspiracy theories about the Grenfell happenings; official figures is some 80 dead, 280 or so escaped.

    Claim is that there were more than 600 people living there, mostly immigrants and all that.

    Are we looking at extra k... loss of life being covered up?

    Don't forget that he surrendered one of his ally's systems to the ai in that move, too. Sit back and enjoy his tantrums.
