However, today Mr Average is at it again, bleating on about new 'old news' news that Brexit might be a bit shit for the economy. Well, this is a real game changer as I myself can't ever recall anyone having made this point before and surely if they had done pre-referendum then the vote would have gone the other way.
Anyhow of more interest is that the markets are really taking all this news in their stride and that is a bit odd really. The Government is bereft of even a majority in the house, it will fail to pass its Brexit deal and we will be on course for a Brexit or Remain showdown in the early months of 2019.
Perhaps the markets are as bored of Brexit as most of the populace?
Some might say that there has been a reaction, but this is not true over any longer term view. There is small drop of late but that is nothing compared to the 5 year trend when the economy has been in first gear at best most of the time.
