Yes the UK market has crashed but other than China so has every country in the world. You might not have heard about it Emp but there is a global crisis and all economies have shut down.
I don't see Britain doing badly and the EU economy soaring quite the reverse we have problems in the UK but the EU economic problems dwarf those in the UK.
I have read there is the odd slight problem in the Republic of Ireland as well? Britain as an act of charity sending ROI covid vaccines much as you Irish slag us off when you are in trouble only one nation comes to your aid.
The problem the UK market is facing is that there is no vaccine for brexit. Each of the EU countries have lost 1 trading partner, you have lost 27. China has imposed sanctions on you and unfortunately for you the USA elected a pro-Irish president. Almost the perfect storm.
You don't see Britain doing badly because you read nothing but the right wing press. Denying something doesn't mean it isn't happening.
Talking about acts of charity, 21 million vaccine doses have been distributed from the EU to the UK while it has received zero in return. There's global britain right there.
I can't compete with this. Comedy Gold. when you are in trouble only one nation comes to your aid.
