It's been drummed into us that Brexit means Brexit. And now we hear that there is a 'Hard Brexit' and a 'Soft Brexit', with ideology seemingly having more of a say than what works for all. The details sound, and no doubt are, very complicated, and I certainly wouldn't have a clue where to start with sorting out a UK wide position, let alone negotiating for it.

A three-point rescue plan to help stop the housing crisis getting worse as a result of a post-Brexit shock, prevent a sharp slowdown in growth and provide some economic certainty. The Bank of England alone can't protect jobs and homes. If the Conservatives politicians can't offer economic leadership, then Labour must.

The Good News and the Bad News for the Post-Referendum Economy

Huw Macartney | Posted 24.06.2016 | UK
Huw Macartney

The good news then is that this is not likely to be a banking crisis like that which we witnessed in 2008. The bad news though is what comes after the initial 'shock' has passed. Because even if the Bank of England looks set to be able to weather the immediate storm inflicted by stock markets, the longer term implications look far less certain and far more challenging.

When Is Being Anti-Business Not Being Anti-Business?

Stuart Thomson | Posted 11.06.2016 | UK
Stuart Thomson

The Government sells the story of its intervention in way that does not frighten businesses. Labour failed at this. Given public opinion and the Government's own actions, it is not the case that 'anti-business' measures are off the agenda but if you are going to do them then there is a need to get the message right.

Osborne's RBS Fire Sale Shows Reform of Britain's Banks Must Come From Within

Gail Cartmail | Posted 09.06.2016 | UK Politics
Gail Cartmail

Osborne is set to announce the fire sale of the public's share in the Royal Bank of Scotland. Since the taxpayers bailed out RBS to the tune of £45billion in 2008, the government have held an 80% share in the bank. This bailout saved the bank from the mismanagement of its own executives, including such luminaries as Fred 'The Shred' Goodwin. You'd be forgiven for believing that seven years on Osborne's sell-off must mean that Britain's banks have been purged of all that led to such bedlam in 2008; deregulation, bloated bonuses, toxic debts and a willingness to gamble money that makes Las Vegas seem puritan. In truth the Chancellor is selling our share in RBS at a massive loss.
