    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.
    You have to admire his persistence in the face of reality, maybe he suffers from Opposition/Defiance Disorder? No matter how simple you make things for him it never seems to help.

      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.
      Last word, look up WorthLess Campaign.. Say nothing, just read. Remember, one thing at a time.

      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 ".
      Same here. He is still either willfully or not missing my point and addressing items I’ve not posted. And it was a point which was spelt out twice. It’s pointless. Utterly pointless.

      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.
      I well and truly give up.

      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.
      Anybody who trolls websites just to find a semblance of bad news and not caring whether it is true or not.

      Don't do that, just confirm why you posted the December figures on their own, a set of data that you thought was a damning indictment of the performance of the UK economy which might then be seen as instrumental in the upcoming EU negotiations, no doubt lifted from The Guardians headline as follows.

      https://www.theguardian.com/business...t-fuel-imports

      I just countered that if you think this is a true economic indicator of the UK's performance and might impact future negotiations then why would the fact that the overall £7 billion narrowing of the UK's deficit for the whole of 2017 might not been seen positively.

      Have you any self awareness of the utter rubbish you have posted, how is our resident stockbroker ?

      And Armageddon we may well have THE ARMAGEDDON WORD

      Its taken 8 years for the FTSE to get back to 2008 levels and it rose on a pro Europe vote speculation, we now slide back down the snake again WRONG

      The worst appears yet to come. HSBC expect the Pound to reach parity with the Euro next year and $1.10 with the Dollar by the end of 2017 WRONG

      and now my pension pot has just sunk in the Stock Exchange LUCKY YOU

      bye bye Disneyworld you are too expensive now.... THAT MADE ME LAUGH

      How are we doing in the G7 league table since before the vote?

      Not quite as good as when we were top, what have been you predictions prior, during and after the referendum ??

      http://uk.businessinsider.com/uk-eco...-brexit-2018-1

      While Brexit has undoubtedly slowed the UK economy, an annualised growth figure of 1.5% for 2017 puts the UK in line with OECD forecasts for growth in fellow G7 members Japan and Italy, both of which are expected to grow at 1.5% in 2017, and close to France, which is expected to grow at 1.8%.

      Or to simplify, which ones have up to know come true, that should be easy, something quantifiable please.
