Perhaps because she (and I) can't find anything much to verify his claims?

For example University enrolment figures for 2019/20 are not available yet - the 2% increase was the 2018 intake so old news (even if only recently reported) and therefore not linked to recent events.

FWIW the increase (and actually I wouldn't be surprised to see one in 2019/20 either) is more probably due to this being the last time when EU students will qualify for UK government student loans, therefore a pre-Brexit bonus not a post-Brexit benefit.
Here you go! I'm sure if you would have just googled what I wrote then you would have found it.

Why all the doom and gloom, friend? Don't limit your view of the world through the prism of the media. Statistics show us that now has never been a better time to be alive than today. Humans are living longer, richer, better fed, better educated, healthier than at any point in time. Things are only getting better!

Some statistics suggest that in the US, life expectancy among middle aged workers has fallen. It seems to have stalled in the UK, although that seems up for debate so far.

Things are only getting better for some people, it seems.

At a cost to the environment that is going to extract a very nasty payment in the not massively distant future.

I am sorry, Blueangel, but they can make any claims they wish. Would you like to ban people who disagree with you and don't rush into communication despite your demands and entitlement?

They will, though, if you are sincere and invite the communication. I haven't seen that just now. Nor in your answer to me, so take my reply as a gesture of good will.
Where did Blueangel make demands? Entitled? Good grief.

What would it take for you to communicate in a sincere manner? I'm inviting the communication, most sincerely.

I do get the impression, however you are unwilling to engage with those of opposing views.

To correct you, things are only getting worse for a minority of people. For most people they’re getting much much better.

Don’t accuse me of something when you’ve obviously not done it yourselves. If you had you would see the data was released on the 16th January. It is the latest statistics that are available!! Or are you expecting for 2019/2020 data 22 days into the new year?!

Released yes. But it actually relates to the 2018 intake so the situation some 16 months ago.

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Whoops, I’m danger of getting dragged into another boring “we can dissect your argument to “own” you!”. Not interested! The good news keeps on coming, The CBI habe just recorded the biggest upward swing ever in business confidence. Happy days! I just know for the cynical Remainers that even if Brexit is the biggest success ever they’ll never ever admit it!

Can you give your definition of what a successful Brexit looks like, say, 12 months from now?

Non alignment with the EU is a success, ECJ no longer having jurisdiction is a success. Anything else is a bonus.

No. It's that you posted something out of context thus giving a false impression. I don't know whether that was deliberate or accidental, hence why I asked the question.

You posted...

There's been a lot of positive Brexit news over the past week or so....

... the number of new UK university enrollments from EU countries up 2% ...
... but the article you provided the link for says...

Quote:
HESA data for 2019/20 will be particularly interesting to observe in light of the restoration of post-study work rights as well as the continuing Brexit process.
The only time 2% is mentioned in the article is in this context...

Quote:
The latest Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) data shows a slight increase in new students coming from EU countries (2%) with larger gains coming from markets outside the European Union (10%). Non-EU first-year student numbers grew by 18,475 between 2017/18 and 2018/19, with most of this increase at the postgraduate level.

what do you mean non-alignment with EU? BJ want to get a trade deal with EU which would requite certain alignment. Or you mean scrap any trade deal and trade only with NZ and AUS?

For anyone who's interested, this is from yesterday's FT...

Quote:
UCL has the largest intake among all British universities of non-UK EU students, with more than 5,000 enrolled in the last academic year, but EU admissions stagnated in 2019-20 after strong growth in previous years. The total EU intake for all under- and postgraduate study last year in the UK was 143,000.
