    This customs union thing is a fudge. Forget it.

    It's Brexit so get on with it.

    If it's a disaster we'll be back in ten years with another referendum to re-enter the EU - if they'll have us.

    Sheesh man do a bit of research before casting conspiracy aspersions.

    FDI has had a huge swing only because 2016 was massively inflated due to major corporate deals. Not least SABMiller being bought by InBev for £100bn.

    You simply canít take FDI figures in isolation for that reason.

    A much better assessment of business investment is GFCF which has been strong since the Brexit vote and indeed the last quarter of 2017 saw a record amount of business investment and an annualised rate of increase higher than any G7 country

    Reported? Yer arse.

    Dunno why I'm thinking this of all things an hour before the derby, but has anything been said about football transfers post brexit? I'm guessing EU players will have to get a work permit and will have to satisfy the criteria, just made it much harder to make signings

    Yes.

    That's roughly how it worked in Football Manager.

    And for European clubs, UK players would no longer count as EU players any more and would have to be included in any non-EU player quotas that exist.

    Smart British footballers who fancy a jaunt on the continent when the economy in this country goes belly-up will be scanning their family trees for Irish grannies to get that valuable passport.

    Tbh I don't think anyone knows for sure yet how it will work out - it depends on what kind of a "deal" we make with the EU.

    I don't see how footballers could be treated differently to any other workers though.

    That looks to be the most likely way it will end up though, and it was quite interesting to see how Football Manager approached it.

    This story is indicative of what Scotland can expect if they succumb to the Tory power grab.

    Scottish hill farmers have been due cash from 2013, and the Tories have redistributed it to English and Welsh farmers instead.

    I've read that article more than once and I don't understand 100% what's going on, but is it not the case the monies from the EU is getting shared amongst all home countries to the possible detriment of Scottish farmers, and not just given to English & Welsh farmers instead as you've stated?
    Apologies if I've misread something but it would appear the sitting government has an agreement to share all extra monies amongst all rather than make enhanced payments to the select few(arguably to those in need?).

    I think that's "sort of" right.... the EU identified that the Scottish farmers were under funded due to their location/infrastructure so set aside extra cash for them, as it's not a devolved matter the cash went to the UK government to distribute but they (UK Gov) then made a decision to share it out across the board, in effect helping some farmers that didn't need help to the same extent (they have lower costs as they were nearer key markets, cheaper fuel costs, more productive land etc etc) ..... that's my take on it reading from a few separate sources at least
