If the RBS had been allowed to bankrupt then there would have been a far worse economic collapse.

You need to think about what you are saying. Anyway the financial sector in the UK is experiencing a huge migration out of the UK and into the EU, taking jobs and investment with them. Farmers are losing workers and subsidies from the EU, that can't be replaced as the UK can't afford it and there are not enough British citizens prepared to do that work. America is not going to rescue the UK either, so you are deluded if you think that. We are losing the market at our doorstep. Brexit Britain is literally a country that has decided to shoot itself in the foot. No two ways about it..
Predictions again, just like a leave vote was supposed to cause an immediate collapse, that never happened.

I guess we will have to buy food from Africa if UK reaches 100% employment & there is nobody to work on farms. Cutting benefits would increase the work pool, so I don't think we need to worry yet.
