I know the Brexiteers have been out in force lately trying to blame the EU, remainers or anyone else for Project Fear becoming Project Reality, but this flowchart will help them figure out who's responsible for this shitshow.
Damn those remainers, asking government ministers for meetings to discuss ways to help out many industries now suffering due to trade issues with the European Union. The Daily Express headline clearly demonstrating how remainers are plotting.
The Daily Express, buried under all the fake-outrage, ultra nationalism and clickbait headlines actually goes on to mention some figures:
"But I am sure he would agree we have a particular problem at the moment with the export of animals, meat and shellfish, where exports are down by between 56 and 83 percent."
The Daily Express goes on to mention more figures:
Overall goods exports from the UK fell by £5.3 billion, 19.3 percent, in January. It was driven by a £5.6 billion, or 40.7 percent, plunge in exports of goods to the EU, the ONS said. A £200 million, 1.7 percent, increase in non-EU exports failed to make up for the decline within the bloc.
Of course, it cannot be relied upon that the typical rabid Brexiteer or Daily Express reader actually has the concentration span necessary to read further down the article and get to the actual facts. I mean in this case it honestly seems like the Express is trolling their readers by literally giving them the data on how Brexit is such a disaster for Britain - almost knowing themselves that their readers won't get to the bottom of the article before angrily sharing on social media.
More blatantly misleading headlines from everyone's favourite Brexit-supporting newspaper the Daily Express.
EU's 'devastating' Brexit export ban cripples UK fishing industry
Should read: United Kingdom leaving the European Union, means its no longer treated like an EU member. Ya know like the Daily Express wanted...?
Nicki Holmyard, director of Offshore Shellfish in Brixham, Devon, said she is bracing for the "disastrous" worst case scenario of having to close her shellfish farm due to the post-Brexit trade fiasco.
Despite mounting pressure to relax the rules, Brussels has said it will stick firmly to the ban indefinitely because the UK is now a third country.
Misleading again, making it seem like this is a new rule that the European Union has come up with to go along with the punish Britain for leaving, it isn't. It's been like it for decades, the UK helped write the rules when it was a member.
Why should the EU change their rules to suit us? It's no surprise to anybody with the smallest amount of knowledge - that when you leave a club you no longer get the benefits of that club. But of course nothing will stop the Brexiteers raging at being proved wrong.
