British press: After Brexit, our country will resemble 1980 Soviet Russia

From 1 January 2021, after the end of the transition period under Brexit, European companies will begin to withdraw from the UK market due to the obligation to pay VAT to the UK government, which was not the case before when the UK entered the EU. As Zoe Williams writes for The Guardian, this can lead to a shortage of goods, and the country will turn into a kind of Soviet Russia in the 80s of the last century.


The exit of the UK from the European Union and the end of the transition period from January 1, 2021 will expel small firms and companies from the British market, which will become unprofitable to sell their goods. At the same time, British companies are becoming more active, which had previously been ousted from the market by cheaper European companies. Competition between manufacturers will diminish, but that won't be "good news," Williams said.

(...) fewer competitors means that we will not be able to buy goods, and those goods that we can buy will be more expensive and, possibly, of lower quality, because there will be no other similar goods on the market

- emphasizes the author.

In her opinion, the UK after Brexit will be the Russia of the 80s of the last century, where everything was beautiful, but it was impossible to buy many goods.

The Kremlin and the Hermitage are very beautiful, but no one in Russia can buy Levi's jeans. It was this brief description that helped us understand the essence of the atrocities of communism towards the end of its existence.

- gives the example of Williams.

The author draws attention to the fact that at present the residents of the UK can buy it if they want something, after January 1 this may not happen.

I will not comment on whether we really need all those goods that we are now buying from the European Union. I just want to say that, probably, we will all soon be able to partially experience for ourselves what life was like in Russia in the 1980s.

- sums up Zoe Williams.

        I am sure if it were not for the coup of 17, Russia would have been the richest country in the world. The communists almost destroyed Russia.

      Levi's jeans in the 80s, those who really needed them could easily buy for themselves. Minimum for half salary. But the feeling of happiness from this acquisition cannot be expressed in any money. smile Everything is relative.

        I’m no, no, but sometimes I will feel sad in the mid-90s, which was my late teens and early youth.
        But I do not wish anyone to return those times to now.
        Although, Britain if only.

          And I, it happens, will load in the mid-90s, which was my early retirement age, when the drunken Yeltsin mug considered unnecessary benefits for servicemen and military pensioners. As I remember now, with what frenzy the trolleybus conductor tried to snatch my license when the free ride was canceled ...
          And, in general, does anyone curse the USSR for the fact that jeans were in short supply there? Believe me, the happiness of a Soviet person was not in jeans or pies. It was conscious happiness, backed by the right to say:
          My country is widespread,
          There are many forests, fields and rivers in it!
          I do not know another such country,
          Where man breathes so freely.

            Just recently. Some kind of mug almost in a crying voice raised my retirement age. Have you seen this? But I and my body are not designed for this mug. And under Yeltsin, I did not even have to raise the retirement age and millions of my compatriots in my thoughts. So why is this face better than the one that canceled your benefits?

        The main thing is to return the Soviets - Soviet power. And the 6th point and the power of the commies contradict the canon "All power belongs to the people." Citizens, as owners and masters of the state,
        will decide for themselves for ideology, social protection, etc. They will also return all state property, illegally sold-given-stolen without the permission of co-owners (citizens). Ps Minus is not mine.

      Jeans, as an example, just something. In fact, "real jeans" in the stores of the USSR have been on free sale since 1987.
      Moreover, in a sufficient range.
      The price, I remember, is from 70 R for Indian, and up to 110 rubles for Italian, British and others.
      Avis, Post, Western Drums, Rifle, Jordan ...

      There were even domestic ones, under the TM "Tver" ...

        UK production of TVs is curtailed

        Today at the British Toshiba plant in Plymouth, the conveyor stops - the production of TVs of this brand is transferred to Poland

        The last TV factory will be closed in the UK today, the BBC reports. Toshiba's Plymouth plant stops the assembly line - the brand's TVs will now be assembled in Poland. The plant has been operating in the kingdom since 1960. Because of his move, at least 270 people will lose their jobs.

        Paper? - again, all over the world there are changes to environmentally friendly paper formats and the transition, where possible, to electronic media ...
        Tomorrow, when Brexit takes place, the rest of the world will be surprised to see that under the cover of the EU, the British dominion has lived well for the last 40 years and has lived a bold life, and this is a very conservative world that is completely closed on itself, which has girded here and there almost half of the planet !!!

        Britain produces excellent food - better than the EU !!! Britain produces the best clothes in the world - it does not produce on a global scale, but it is designed for their markets !!! Britain produces some of the world's best luxury cars !!! The British produces everything related to the sea - all the technologies of the civil and military maritime sector - Britain, if not the leader of the world shipbuilding, is in the top three for sure !!! And these are just those industries offhand which are more or less known - without delving deeper into the issue.

        But besides any goods, Britain produces the main thing in this world - it produces the most expensive money on the planet !!! Britain is the world leader in the financial sector of the planet and the largest haven for the inflow of any world capital - this is the main thing !!! The rest of the economy is important but secondary !!!

          "The famous english analytical agency Clarkson Research has published a rating in which Russia ranked second in the world for shipbuilding. This is a rather unexpected result, since before, the top three were practically unchanged - South Korea, China, Japan, - reported by Smart-Lab.
          British agency provided ratings separately for September and separately for the third quarter of 2020. Russia broke into second place in the rating for the third quarter.
          The first place traditionally went to South Korea, in the third quarter it accounted for 45% of all world shipbuilding. In absolute terms, this is 1,42 million CGT (CGT is a registered ton, a unit of volume equal to 100 cubic feet, that is, 2,83 m³ and the tonnage of all ships is recalculated into registered tons, so that it is convenient to compare them with each other, and the rating takes into account the tonnage).
          Traditionally, South Korea has always been followed by China... But this time the second line of the rating was taken by Russia... Over the past three months, the volume of Russian shipbuilding tonnage amounted to 860 thousand CGT. This is 30 thousand tons more than China, which took the third place this time. "

          God bless her - with Russia !!!Where are you in the top three - South Korea, China, Japan - saw Britain??WHERE????

          Where is Britain here ???

          On the ALL Europe accounts for only 10% of the world's shipbuilding

          Believe in the might of Britain, yeah ...

      The problem will be with an oversupply of eggs and lamb, which the islanders supplied to the mainland. The meat is supplied not only from the EU, but also Argentina, Brazil, New Zealand. I won't tell you about chicken, I don't know.
      The fruits are mainly sourced from the Commonwealth countries, and they are not in the EU. Turkey will be able to replace European vegetables. What kind of logistics centers they have, you should see.
      Today on the radio they said that the parliament, at the suggestion of Boris Jones, has begun to consider the issue of food safety.

    A drop in the purchasing power of UK citizens can be seen in recent years as the Primark retail chain rapidly expands its stores and range of goods in them.
    The network specializes in inexpensive clothing and footwear, including related products. The price for clothes in Primark is lower than in the Matalan chain, hitherto positioned as economy class, and even lower than in Asda or similar supermarkets.
    And the halls of such networks as C&A are practically half empty. There are even fewer potential buyers in boutiques.

    Competition between manufacturers will diminish, but that won't be "good news," Williams said.

    (...) fewer competitors means that we will not be able to buy goods, and those goods that we can buy will be more expensive and, possibly, of lower quality, because there will be no other similar goods on the market


    Oh, that's what it's called "import substitution". Learn economic terms from Comrade Medvedev's textbook. Hold on there and cast in granite.

    Why would European companies leave the market? Because of vat? Duck there is a recipe proven over the years, raise the price and the buyer will pay himself, and for vat and even a little bit from above. And everyone is happy. Well, except for ordinary people, but who cares about them?

    The exit of the UK from the European Union and the end of the transition period from 1 January 2021 will expel small firms and companies from the British market, which will become unprofitable to sell their goods.
    And what, small firms and companies are doing the "weather" in the British market? A holy place is never empty, some will leave, others will come, and their own will begin to occupy this line. Somehow they lived without the European Union, and not even bad, but now they cannot. An article in defense of the European Union has been written.

    If now in anti-Soviet Russia all imports are removed, and only products produced according to Soviet GOSTs are left, then the beggar will be even worse than during the commodity and food sabotage organized by the enemies of the Communists during Perestroika, when even in "snickering" Moscow goods and groceries instantly disappeared.

        Ha, what have they removed? "Russian" among the enemies of the communists is made on imported equipment, from imported materials and raw materials, in imported packaging, plus "screwdriver assembly". ... plus, fake and low quality "products" at high prices. Do not be ridiculous with "domestic". Go and eat the "sausage" from the "horns and hooves." Enemies of the communists are like eating, if only there were a lot, and without queues.
