FULL STEAM AHEAD FOR BREXIT: Blow for Remoaners as Labour to SNUB plot to thwart EU exit
The appeal to Labour remoaners – including former leadership contender Owen Smith and former Labour leader Ed Miliband – to stop whining about the historic result on 23 June comes amid more good news for the economy as Brexit Britain continues to boom.
Housebuilder Taylor Wimpey said Project Fear predictions of a collapse in the housing market after a Brexit vote had failed to materialise as trading remained “resilient” during the second half of this year.
The FTSE 100 firm sold 0.70 homes per week over the period, down slightly from 0.74 in the second half of 2015, while cancellation rates rose to 13 per cent from 11 per cent.
A survey by Hays recruitment firm has also revealed that business confidence has been almost completed unaffected by the vote.
The results revealed that 93 per cent expect higher or stable activity in the next 12 months, down only one per cent from 94 per cent before June’s referendum.
Mr McDonnell’s intervention appeared to be a major slap down for euro-fanatics in his party who refuse to accept the result or embrace a positive vision for an independent Britain, including former European commissioner and New Labour spin doctor Lord Mandelson.
The former business secretary in Gordon Brown’s failed government has made an intervention for Open Britain trying to talk down the country’s prospects again by claiming that a so called “hard” Brexit will cost the UK £1.2 billion.
In a bid to revive the discredited Project Fear campaign and keep Britain under the sway of the European Court of Justice and force it to have to accept free movement, Lord Mandelson claimed that it should remain in the single market undermining the referendum vote.
He said: “The best way to keep these deals in place would be to negotiate for membership of the Single Market and the Customs Union. Doing so would be a big boost for British importers and exporters.”
