When Trump called himself MR Brexit, the left collectively clutched at their pearls. Many decried the drop in value of the British Pound, not knowing of course how currency exchange values work or what that means. The left and their globalist funding overlords predicted a virtual collapse. Now as data starts to roll in, we see what it means. It means a stronger country, with great economic increases. The mass hysteria of the left was, as usual, misplaced.
Of course, you may remember how Trump said the day after the Brexit victory that it would bring at least a short term boost to tourism in the UK. That means an increase in money flowing into the country, and an increase in jobs in that tourism sector. Of course, lefties claimed he had not idea and that this would be disastrous. There can be no upside! This shows Trump does not get it! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/blake-fleetwood/donald-trump-says-brexit-_b_10757054.html
So what has happened?
Well, for shits and giggles lets look at Trump’s prediction on tourism. In the UK tourism will gorw 3.6 percent this year, much better than the 2.2 percent expected for the rest of Europe. Of course France is expecting much worse and has downgraded their forecast 2.9 percent to 1.1 percent. Part of their problem being the waves of terrorism that follow their blind adherence to obviously failed open borders plans. Before libtards say that tourism is not that big an economic driver, in the UK tourism accounted for 9.6 percent of all jobs in 2013, employed 3.1 millionpeople and was worth £127billion or 9 per cent of GDP. https://reportuk.org/2016/08/23/brexit-boost-british-tourism-continues-to-flourish/
But wait! There’s MORE! MUCH more! in just two months British manufacturing exports have jumped to the highest point in 2 years. This is how economics is supposed to work. The cost for other countries to by British goods goes down, purchases go up. http://www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2016/08/23/vast-surprise-sterlings-post-brexit-fall-boosts-manufacturing-exports/#375172763fc0
Also up is retail sales. This was due to two things. First, Brits did not care about the Brexit doom and gloom and kept shopping. Pundits can talk all the want, but people still need things like food and clothes. Also boosting it was the previously mentioned boost in tourism. http://m.nasdaq.com/article/uk-retail-sales-up-despite-brexit-as-weak-pound-lures-tourists-20160818-00115
Overall, there is a lot of good economic news only two months after the disaster predicted by globalists. Britains largest home builder says buyers are flocking to new homes. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/aug/23/uk-economic-surveys-defy-brexit-fears
