How would you or anyone else know? Last I checked, the UK was still in the EU.

Actually long term economic forecasts tend to be more accurate than short term. And for the past several months the UK has been in a position similar to Germany and Ireland - full access to the single market and related trade deals while trading in what to them is an under valued currency at little cost to the exchequer. Come March 2019 that will no longer be the case and we will have to see how that plays out.
Despite full access to the single market and EU trade deals and an under valued currency the U.K. economy is now the slowest growing in Europe and the G7.

So when the UK loses access to the single market and EU trade deals then everything economically will improve

Edit; likely BOE rate increases to stop inflation will also fix the under valued currency
