    'No emergency Budget' - Hammond http://bbc.in/29EOg50

    "

    Speaking to BBC Breakfast, Chancellor Philip Hammond insists there will be "no emergency Budget".
    He says that "in the short term" the Leave vote "came as a surprise to the markets... a surprise to business and therefore it's rattled confidence. It's caused people to put plans on hold while they wait to see how things clarify."
    He says the government's job is "to stabilise and support the economy through the coming months in order to help that confidence to be restored as soon as possible".
    He adds: "I'm going to sit down with the key figures in the UK economy, like the governor of the Bank of England, look at the situation we face [and] make some carefully considered decisions over the summer and we'll have an autumn statement in the normal way".

    Also add the fact that loads of countries, including the United States, are coming out and saying actually you won't be back of the queue for trade deals after all. The Remain camp are ranting about apparent lies from Leave, but they told more than their fair share of porkies.

    That would be correct if you had said "Brexit" was called stupid. But, you said "Brexiters" was called stupid. Because "Brexiters" is a collective (plural) noun, you should use "were" instead of "was".

    And on that second point, you assume wrong. I voted to leave.

    EDIT:

    If you care to read it, here is a tutorial on how to use collective nouns from Oxford dictionaries. The "police" example makes the same mistake that you do.

    "How to use collective nouns

    Colchester police has also queried the proposal.
    If you think this is ungrammatical, award yourself a Brownie point or two! Police is one of a few English collective nouns which should only be used with a plural verb. However, many people in today’s media (from my local radio station to the hallowed BBC) seem to be using police with singular verbs such as is, was, and has – it’s one of the solecisms (like apostrophe misuse) that’s guaranteed to bring on an attack of ‘pedantic lexicographeritis’ whenever I hear it."

    Hah, brilliant. One thing warned by Remain - an emergency budget - hasn't happened. That COMPLETELY negates all the other bad stuff they warned about which IS happening.

    I assume they do actually need one but Hammond has advised not doing it because it would "make it seem like it's an emergency".

    You really couldn't make up the situation we are in, it's too ripe for mere fiction.

    Hm, no. Currency going down (brexiters knew it was coming) makes us more competitive. Wages will rise to meet back upto pre-brexit value to $ as well as competition to get people to come here.

    You also said we won't get trade deals, China/India/New Zealand/Austrilia and many more want trade deals asap, ironically its only USA putting us at back to queue, but majority are mad about that.

    USA meant to be our closest friend, but looks like China helping more than USA right now.

    Why does China/India want a trade deal?
    They're fed up with EU taking lifetime.

    Why do others want trade deal?
    UK be out of EU but in Single Market, this means they'll get access to EU without taking lifetime to get a deal.

    Currency down - more people buy
    More people buy = higher wages
    Higher wages and house prices don't rise as much = higher living standards... EVEN if prices go up, which is unlikely to hold in long-term.

    Investment has lowered, why? Scaring the public that we'll have a recession didn't help! Its that direct reason why people are panicking and saying no confidence. Read BBC News I linked.

    Anything else say and I bet there a reason.

    Where are you basing that stuff on? You dismissed all the experts, remember?

    Anyway, prices are going to go up faster and sooner than wages will catch up, if ever. In the meantime, it makes things more expensive to import/purchase, so UK balance of payments, already in crisis, will become critical.

    You also said we won't get trade deals, China/India/New Zealand/Austrilia and many more want trade deals asap, ironically its only USA putting us at back to queue, but majority are mad about that.
    Straw man. Nobody said nobody would trade with the UK. What was said was that any trade deal will be inferior to what we could get in the EU, where we had half a billion people represented. Smaller countries get sidelined.

    Why does China/India want a trade deal?
    They're fed up with EU taking lifetime.
    All trade deals take a long time. You've made a claim here without making any attempt to compare it to what non-EU trade deals are like. No advantage to be had here.

    Why do others want trade deal?
    UK be out of EU but in Single Market, this means they'll get access to EU without taking lifetime to get a deal.
    How on earth does the UK being out of the Single Market mean other countries will get into the Single Market via the UK?

    Currency down - more people buy
    More people buy = higher wages
    Higher wages and house prices don't rise as much = higher living standards... EVEN if prices go up, which is unlikely to hold in long-term.
    See above. Wages will take a lot longer to rise, especially as we will be in recession for many years. Years of misery before things are set right again.

    Investment has lowered, why? Scaring the public that we'll have a recession didn't help! Its that direct reason why people are panicking and saying no confidence. Read BBC News I linked.

    Anything else say and I bet there a reason.
    Investment has lowered because the UK has become less attractive as an investment location. You seem to think that business follows what the news says, rather than they telling the news what they think.

    Anyway, again - what's this all based on? Your hunch?

    The lack of emergency budget doesn't point to that everything is fine. It just shows that everything is still uncertain. Any future budget (regardless of timing) will be impacted by the vote.

    Let's not ignore that nothing has changed yet since the vote (other than the uncertainty about the future confirmed) since we have this 2 year window from when Article 50 is triggered.

    The fact that the Bank of England is likely to cut the interest rate to 0.25% tomorrow points to the fact that the Brexit vote has impacted the economy.

    And you really think the Brexit camp would have taken things likely had they lost? Farage is on record having said he would not accept a 52/48 loss before the referendum.

    Good god, you hardcore remainer, go and read news.
    Single market = we staying in, EU we out. Immigration will be lower but only because of UK economy isn't as stable anymore, they can make a trade deal with UK and access market which will be faster than EU speed.

    Prices don't increase all of a sudden, maybe as they more expensive we buy elsewhere... common sense. All or almost all experts lied and proof is that we aren't collapsing.

    Surely one of the main reasons there's no emergency budget is because there's no Osbourne (and no Cameron)

    The Tories are no longer trying to get the deficit* down by 2020 hence no need for a budget plus Osbourne would have had to have a mini budget of sorts just to show he's not a great big fibber ,or even worse ,a fool.



    *or whatever it is they were trying to get down by 2020. Frankly it's all far too complicated.

    That remains to be seen. The EU has made it clear Single Market access requires full adherence to laws the EU makes, and freedom of movement. Do you know something we don;t?

    Immigration will be lower but only because of UK economy isn't as stable anymore,
    Wonderful, we reduce immigration by bleeding ourselves white.

    they can make a trade deal with UK and access market which will be faster than EU speed.

    What information are you basing this all on? Seriously? Is it just your personal gut?
