UK’s thriving economy refutes all ‘gloom and doom’ of Brexit, expert tells RT’s Boom Bust
RT’s Boom Bust welcomed Hilary Fordwich, the president of Strelmark BD Consultants, to discuss a thriving economy which is walking hand-in-hand with rising inflation.
Fordwich noted that the pound had bounced back to about 1.42 against the US dollar, up from 1.20, where it was after the Brexit vote in 2016.
“This refutes all the gloom and doom of Brexit; despite Covid and the lockdown and everything, look how well the British economy is doing,” she said.
The business developer added that the upsurge was being led by hotels, restaurants, and consumer-facing services, as the UK’s severe lockdown had been “much more restrictive than the US ever was.”
