Remainer pre Brexit 'facts' come true.
#11
Glad you accept that the “2 million vacancies” figure is inciteful garbage, again just like the ‘UK has no petrol’ guff.
We do have over 1.5 million unemployed. Many of those could take a good proportion of the vacancies as no or little training would be required or, at worst, training on the job. (Better wages and slightly less state incentive not to take a job, accepted)

The point of the op was to highlight that ‘project fear’ was real and just as ‘dishonest’ or, at best, misleading and inaccurate as some claim the Leave arguments were.

Point of order: when you say you “realise” I think that should be ‘believe’ as 9 months, in the great scheme of things, is not a length of time for the eventual outcomes to be determined.  Angel

What we were told
“ After Brexit, higher trade costs with the EU would be likely to depress FDI.”
 
“Overall, Brexit is likely to have a negative impact on inward FDI. Our new empirical analysis implies that leaving the EU will reduce FDI inflows to the UK by around 22%.”
 
“Such losses of investment will damage UK productivity and could lower real incomes by 3.4%.”  (L.S.E.)
 
What has actually happened.

“British technology companies are on course to raise record funding this year, with the UK extending its lead over competing European hubs, research suggests.
Investors poured £13.5 billion into more than 1,400 private technology firms between January and June, more than the total investment for last year, according to a report by Tech Nation, the lobby group, and Dealroom, a data provider.”
 
“According to the data, more than 1,400 UK tech companies have benefited from the £13.5 billion raised and the investment is more than double that achieved in the next biggest market – Germany, which managed to raise £6.2 billion.”
 
Britain is third, behind only The U.S.A. And China for ‘Start Up’ funding.
On course to be the “biggest year for Tech investment ever”.
Not sure what data you are looking at but it's quite clear that FDI has fallen post Brexit...

I believe Logic is very well informed in this particular field. Might even be a pesky expert!

Do you read the articles you post? Banks cut jobs and then realise they actually need the people they have laid off. Add that to the people that have left the UK to go elsewhere (I daren't say why they have left) there are a load of posts to fill.

And as for the risk and compliance jobs, there is a new UK Sox law coming in next year which is probably driving that plus it has mushroomed massively over the past 20 years and keeps going - no issue from me as it's my field. I'll take all the extra red tape as another reason to get a pay rise.

Ok, so because you are incapable of reading a simple graph and want to just focus on recent media stories. Here is one for you JDK.... an October update...

Do you read the articles you post? 

Did you actually read the second quotation from that fella?

Talk about accentuating the negative...

For JOK, sorry silly error. I manage 40 people, was a busy day but I needed to respond when I saw that BBC article.
