Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Thats why we could never do catered. Fussy eaters. Someone dont eat spicy food, once only eats chicken, one dont each fish, another has a nut allergy, etc.


Well, indeed - however post Brexit people may have to learn to be less fussy Toofy Grin

UK Manufacturing Statistics

Manufacturing contributes £6.7 trillion to the global economy. Contrary to widespread perceptions, UK manufacturing is thriving, with the UK currently the world’s eighth largest industrial nation. If current growth trends continue, the UK will break into the top five by 2021. In the UK, manufacturing makes up 11% of GVA, 44% of total UK exports, 70% of business R&D, and directly employs 2.6 million people.

Never mind, when the Italian banking crisis gets past tipping point (I see yet another mid-sized Italian bank was bailed out recently) the Euro will only be good for burning to keep warm or wiping your bum with. As Italian banks are huge holders of Italian government debt and, guess what, the Italian government keeps issuing debt to keep the banking system afloat, that's only going to end one way

Italian government debt was downgraded yet again last month and is just one step above junk rating which many institutions are precluded from owning and as a consequence there would be a fire-sale of IT debt once that happened

@stanton, that total 8ollocks. Todays Forex puts sterling at 1.13 Euros


So based on your own opening post, this coming season should be 10% cheaper for UK ski punters.

So today's sterling "plummet" still leaves a healthy 8.5% less expensive ski holiday.

Oh dear, the UK imports less than 5% of its gas from NL and BE:

Given the thousands of traders involved I am sure it is a highly competitive market so any thoughts of the UK consumers being ripped off are just a pipe dream.

Manufacturing contributes £6.7 trillion to the global economy. Contrary to widespread perceptions, UK manufacturing is thriving, with the UK currently the world’s eighth largest industrial nation. If current growth trends continue, the UK will break into the top five by 2021. In the UK, manufacturing makes up 11% of GVA, 44% of total UK exports, 70% of business R&D, and directly employs 2.6 million people.

Most Brexit facts and statistics exist only in a bubble, they don't consider how something else impacts their favourite statistic.

The UK's manufacturing industry is a small portion, but it will decline after a hard Brexit.

Airbus, for example, builds wings in the UK which are then shipped to France/Germany to be screwed onto the side of actual aeroplanes. If we leave the EU without a deal, then this becomes more burdonsome, from a regulatory standpoint. Airbus may well choose to move its manufacturing of wings from the UK and into Germany/France/Spain/Romania/wherever. Airbus employs 10,000 people at Filton and Broughton manufacturing all their wings.

Ford, for example, builds engines in the UK, which are then shipped overseas (obviously they don't build cars in the UK anymore). These again could be subjected to customs holdups and delays, import tariffs (when importing the engines into Spain from the UK). Ford may decide that this is no good and so close down the Dagenham factory, or the Transmission factory in Halewood in favour of building the motors in the EU instead to simplify the supply chain into its EU factories. Ford currently employs about 2,500 people at Dagenham and Halewood.

But we aren't going to suddenly stop buying cars. We'll just import them from the EU and pay more for them.

So our manufacturing will decline if we leave the EU badly. Remember, leaving the EU was supposed to create opportunities, but I don't see where they are. In fact, all I'm hearing now is how it wont be quite as bad as a World War and there will be adequate food. Funny how they didn't write that on the side of a bus.

Yougov has some reasonable research on where British people are with the draft withdrawal agreement
https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/articles-reports/2018/11/16/7-more-things-weve-learned-about-public-opinion-br

60% would rather leave with this deal than with no deal
56% would rather another in/out referendum than leaving with this deal
50% think leaving with no deal is a bad thing, 25% think it would be a good thing
And when asked to choose between accept the deal and leave, leave with no deal, try and renegotiate, referendum on whether to accept the deal, or cancel Brexit - cancelling Brexit was the leading option.

(If there was another referendum, it shouldn't have another other than two options, either leave/remain or deal/no-deal - once you put three options on the ballot, then chances are the winner will have under 50% of the result, and a lot of gammons will explode over that).

@slopemad, you can get round the gammons with 3 options and a 2nd preference. Everyone can then vote what they really prefer and the lowest scoring then gets votes transferred to 2nd prefs. So the true nutters who want to be No deal but if they can't have that they'd rather stay in can express that etc , and sane people who'd rather forget the whole thing can vote for the crap deal as a back up without worrying about their vote exposing them to no deal.

This means that 'second choice' would win. Farage/Rees-Mogg would exploit that via their extreme right wing social media campaigns to the gammons who really don't understand.

Fact remains the UL stagnant wages ..rising prices the Pound does not buy what it used to...

The Pound will only bounce back (considerably) on cancellation Brexit....
