Steve Shaw BS: Post Brexit life in the UK (6498* d) RE: BS: Post Brexit life in the UK 05 Jul 18

From Nigel's first link:

British businesses need to up their game and be more productive or risk losing out as the country leaves the European Union, industry bosses have warned. Productivity in the UK grew by 0.9pc and 0.7pc in the final two quarters of 2017, the strongest growth since 2011.

But, the UK’s output per hour is still around a quarter behind competitors like France and Germany, meaning it takes British workers five days to produce what others achieve in four.

“The UK has a long way to go in order to catch up with our European neighbours,” said Tony Danker, chief executive of Be the Business, an industry-led organisation created to help close the UK’s productivity gap.

“With less than a year to go before we leave the EU, bosses must start now to make the most of the opportunities it presents and make Britain’s economy the most competitive in Europe.”

From Nigel's second link:

But companies reiterated that Brexit-related uncertainty had held back investment, affecting spending by large companies in particular."

Amusing to see someone making links that actually undermine his own arguments!
