"Despite Brexit Fears" Weekly Round up

Posted on the 13 September 2016 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

On a lighter note, here area few outings for that tired old journalistic cliché from the past week:
City hiring holds up despite banks’ Brexit fears
Kamel Mennour to Open London Gallery Despite Brexit Fears
Experts say Brexit will not cause a recession despite Project Fear scaremongering from Osborne before the EU referendum
How Yorkshire has remained strong despite post-Brexit fears
More than two-thirds of Britain’s smallest firms expect to see growth over next six months despite concerns over Brexit, research finds
SMEs ‘to generate £16 billion a year despite Brexit fears’
London house prices: Fears of dip after Brexit defied as prices continue to rise
And so on, ad infinitum. It would be just as easy to find the same number of headlines reporting poor economic news, which is promptly blamed on Brexit Fears.
Whether the final terms of Brexit will be good or bad for the UK economy - which depends very much on your point of view* - is unknown, but big picture wise it will probably make bugger all difference.
* House prices being a prime example, there are millions of people who would gain enormously if they fell, as opposed to a few hundred thousand who would lose out. But in a Homey society, higher house prices counts as A Good Thing and we have to look at the world through their twisted perspective. Or we could take immigration from poorer European countries; that's good for UK employers and landowners; not so good for low skilled UK workers or the countries they leave.
