    I think the country's had enough of experts. So I'm going to go full Brexiter and make it all up.

    Good news everyone, the economy is booming and the UK is the world's sole producer of every car ever. Plus we just landed on the Moon.

    Which will just about take us to activating A50.

    Hold on to your hat...
    Didnt see the need of the OP to talk down the situation until we are there.
    The article makes disappointing reading, but maybe there will be a silver lining.

    Still so much unknown, but they do have to make the decision free movement of people or not.

    There won't be a recession, just a super slowdown in economic growth.

    Let's say around 0.1 / 0.2 / 0.3 % growth in GDP

    Which is still a joke considering how long ago the financial crash happened and how many years the central banks have been holding our hands. The FED has been pissing about with raising interest rates and if the FED don't go, the rest of the world doesn't either. I don't see why the UK need to follow what america does. The economy WAS strong enough for a rate hike, heck I think we should have had the bank of england base rate around 2% now, savers have been burnt for nearly a decade now. What a joke!

    Unemployment in the US is at all times low, it can't get any lower, if you let stupid market turmoil stop you raising rates, you are an idiot. You don't let bipolar markets dictate your rate hikes, you look at the GDP figures, the unemployment, the inflation etc.

    This global stagnant inflation is stopping people spending, maybe we need to start going into negative interest rates and start printing money so people go spending! (Not saying we do that, just an idea)

    OP is obviously getting his/her retaliation in early.

    But his/her opinion is as worthless as any other lay person.

    Yes yes, we brexiters aren't stupid we knew it was going to happen in short term, but exports are up... just like BREXITERS said.

    *waits for remainers to complain saying they was right*
    I do agree that because of voting out we will leave the single market and that would cause a slowdown, It appears the news corporations have uproared news to ensure it has a devastating impact. I have not looked at the news article but i believe we was already on the way to a recession and they covered it up in the news until brexit happened so the government did not get blamed

    I should add that these were flash PMI numbers conducted over about 10 days and with a smaller than normal sample.

    Personally i'd hold off worrying too much until the end of October when Q3 data is released. It's a fall in investment we should worry about in that data, not a fall in consumption which could be as simple as scaremongering.
