The OECD has confirmed that the UK economy is at the bottom of the list of developed countries and has proven that the main cause of those figures can be attributed to the whole nightmare of Brexit. Out of 20 countries, we are sitting at 19th in a league table where only Russia, sanctioned by most of the others, sits below us since recovering from the pandemic.
The real uncanny and mad situation occurring though is that even with every chart and league table showing how destructive leaving the umbrella of the EU has been, those politicians responsible for it are refusing to accept that they were wrong but have now turned to blame us Remainers for its failure.

The heir to the throne has even described that policy as “appalling.”
The whole country is falling apart at the seams. Even the health service professionals who sacrificed so much to get us through the pandemic were given an insulting pay rise of 3% and are now resorting to using charity food banks to survive.
Yet still, when I point out these apparent happenings to many of those who voted for Brexit, I am told that I…
