  • Former central banker blames Brexit for permanently damaging investment into Britain

The Bank of England has forecast a two-year recession, which is officially declared when the UK economy shrinks for two consecutive quarters.

Five years ago, when Britain voted to leave the EU, British stocks were worth 1.5 trillion more than France.

Furthermore, a former Bank of England policymaker, Michael Saunders, told Bloomberg TV that the UK economy has been “permanently damaged” by Brexit, because it reduced the country’s potential output and resulted in reduced investment into UK businesses.

Meanwhile, France’s stock market has bolstered by luxury retail companies enjoying a post-Covid spending boost.
