Remainers are still taking aim at Brexit despite six years of Britain democratically voting to leave the bloc. One expert has pointed out that even though the UK’s economy is in poor condition thanks to high inflation and stagnant wages and growth, not all of the UK’s problems can be attributed to leaving the bloc.
Phil Mullen writes for Spiked: “If Britain is being hit worst by recent shocks it is probably because it lacks the material resources and competent political leadership to cope with these shocks.
“These problems cannot be attributed either to the Brexit vote, or to the end of the Brexit transition period earlier this year.”
Mr Mullen continues: “A quick look at the trends in business investment and productivity growth before and since 2016 show how limited Brexit’s impact has been.
“The trends show that any potential post-Brexit fluctuations – and there always are fluctuations – are a sideshow to the bigger picture of long-term decline in both investment and productivity growth in the UK.
“This economic decay existed long before the referendum and does not show much if any additional Brexit influence.”
