    Not at all, do you think it can ever be helpful having 15 year projection, I would have poured scorn on it if it was positive news for Brexit, its a waste of time and undermines the nearer term projections which you might have used as an indication of a future loss of growth.

    By the way how are the markets @vegster, why no comment on last weeks mini blip deserved greater attention from you, can't think why you kept quiet ol:
    I'm afraid I can only really talk one point at a time with you and your denial problems. Last week was spent dragging it out of you that the education system is indeed faltering, even at your wife's school.

      Since when did anyone take notice of Civil Servants. They are non-wealth creators and non-employers, detached from the business world and a massive drain on public finances.
      Government forecasting has been notoriously inaccurate whichever party is in power. It was so bad they even had to set up the OBR to try and restore some credibility. People seem to suddenly take notice and attach credibilty to highly speculative forecasts .. when it suits their agenda? I would like to see a law introduced where 'forecasters' (or 'experts' ) be they civil service or private would need a yearly accuracy audit.

      Ulster talks break down once Maggie May gets involved, best thing she steps aside and let's a competent leader like Corbyn take over the Brexit negotiations

      It's a pointless task trying to convince you that we are not due a four day week or that school's have not become a third world environment.

      I offered some insight into some of the stresses for those working within it but also the well resourced schools that my wife goes into, local state schools here in sussex, ipad per pupil, new computer suites, secure and modern facilities, healthy sports budgets and fantastically motivated teachers and support staff going about their daily work, it's difficult for me specifically to quiz my wife on everything that goes on especially if she then thinks I am going to share it on here, but suffice to say she could do with a bigger budget, she could do with more of her wonderful staff rather than a small number that excasserbates those strains by those that seem to hold a low threshold of any circumstance that leads to absenteeism that then effects the whole school.

      In conclusion no doubt school's could do with a few quid more, my wife could do with a few more motivated and reliable teachers and support staff to complement those that are already in the profession, but they dont need to do a four day week or contributions to put toilet paper in the bathrooms, that's just just propoganda or broken management.

      That's my position and I know precisely which agenda you would like to peddle but it doesnt fit with my wifes 20+ years experience of teaching in sussex.

      Give her a break poor dear, she's lucky if she can achieve consensus on the choice of sandwich fillings at Cabinet meetings!

      What hope would she have of dealing with people like Alfredmizen with their entrenched views?

      You should check my posts about the trade deficit. I gave up trying to impress upon @BigGully I was wanting to discuss the trade deficit specifically, and not inflation or whatever. The clue was in the words trade...and deficit. But I failed.

      Jeeez you mean the UK trade deficit that narrowed by £7 billion in 2017, you're the poster that just keeps giving.

      https://tradingeconomics.com/united-...lance-of-trade

      Considering 2017 as a whole, the trade deficit narrowed by GBP 7.0 billion from the previous year to GBP 33.7 billion, as exports rose 11.3 percent to GBP 617.2 billion while imports increased at a softer 9.3 percent to GBP 650.9 billion. Main exports were mechanical machinery, cars, electrical machinery and medicinal and pharmaceutical products, and the biggest export partners were the United States, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Ireland and China. Meanwhile main imports were electrical machinery, mechanical machinery, cars, other miscellaneous manufactures and medicinal and pharmaceutical products. The most important sources of imports were Germany, China, the Netherlands, the United States and France.

      Excellent, what a waste of your time and effort and STILL misunderstand what I said! Don't remember I said, and posted links to a discussion of WSCC and other sources about ' considering ' moving to a 4 day week to save money?

      Your replies over many diatribes always can be simplified to " Vegster said schools are starting a 4 day week any day now and that's rubbish ' please show some of these posts to your wife, she might be able to help you comprehend the word " considering ".

      Mate, call me out when a school goes on a four day week and we can discuss it then, you told us nearly everything will crash and burn since the referndum, you want me to see a link where someone from somewhere said they are considering a four day week, well it hasnt been mentioned ever by anyone I know in the profession they don't continually expect imminent disaster on absolutely everything, your just an avid anti Brexit and anti Tory not unknown in the teaching profession either but it doesnt matter what happens you will continually just blame even if it isn't actually happening.
