    With the news today about the car industry job losses and the big stores not having what they call a good Xmas with profits down on this time last year, are we heading towards another collapse along with the brexit fuck up.

    Thought this was a thread about BimboBob :)


    I dont think cars are selling well the world over, all makers seem to be having bad sales except maybe Toyota, Kia & Hyundai

    Germany are struggling due to VW/Audi/Skoda lies and if Britain leaves with no deal the German car industry will take a further massive hit.

    On the whole with jobs figures/manufacturing etc the UK is doing OK.

    Online shopping is murdering the high st just as the high street murdered the small retailers.

    I said this the other day and most of the time I am a glass half-full guy but I have a strong feeling 2019 will be a terrible year and predict that:

    There will be a definite recession

    Even more far-right leaders will come to power in Europe

    David Attenborough will die

    Climate change will devastate large parts of the world

    The canal killer will become even more prolific and brutal

    WHS Smith will go bust

    We used to have 4 car manufacturers here in Oz, Ford, Holden, Mitsubishi & Toyota, now we have none, all manufacturing gone to Asia where its miles cheaper.

    I think JLR is using Brexit and Diesel as an excuse to shift manufacturing to somewhere much cheaper.

    As long as David Attenborough doesn't die, I think everything will be ok.
