Roll on 5th September Parliament returns

The title of this post should be taken with a pinch of salt. The summer recess (posh term for holidays) ends and the rag tag bag of MP'S return to sort out the country and lead the nation into the  great unknown of post brexit. I never wanted to leave the EU so I am obviously being sarcastic about the subject. The MP's set to deliver us safely out of the European Market are in disarray no one has any idea of how to go about negotiation with people who once were our allies but are now almost our worst enemies. The pound is set to drop like a stone, we have already lost some 16% since the vote for Brexit.
There are so many variables in the run up to Brexit the strength of the sitting Government (weak and cobbled together with DUP) the strength of the opposition and I am not talking LibDems or UKIP. Jeremy Corbyn is in a great position to become the next prime minister. All I can tell you is the next six months could be very interesting and I for one am waiting for September 5th.

House prices falling, start of another winter of discontent?

Evidently there is a slow down in the housing market, it started in London and is radiating out from there. I am watching Homes under the Hammer as I write this post and cannot get the word recession out of my head. Is the decline in the housing market a sign off something much worse. I am old enough to have lived through four recessions and they all  started from small beginnings. We have  some  inflationary things  in the mix plus a government that has no real majority. The markets get very jittery when things are unstable, add Brexit into the equation and  maybe  the fuse  has be lit. Parliament returns after the summer recess   on September 5th. Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party will have their attack dogs set to inflict pain upon the weakened Theresa May and her rag tag of buffons. This winter could have the making of another WINTER OF DISCONTENT but with different players. We already have a Bin collection strike in Birmingham and I can remember the 1978 binmen strikes. Then is heralded the new dawn of Conservatism and Margaret Thatcher so maybe we could see the dawn of a new era when people see that Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party could be the tonic we have all been waiting for.
