British exports to the EU countries fell by 40% in January (compared to the previous year).

Who'd have thunk it? 🙄

That 40% figure, in combination with the effects of covid, is a portent of a coming catastrophe. The EU was the UK's largest export market. The Lockdown is probably just masking a terrible economic collapse.

However, it gets worse, a lot worse.

Scotland is a small country which has to exist economically by having strong exports (and we have always *had* strong exports).

Here are the figures for some of Scotland's strongest food export sectors:

fish & shellfish down 83%
meat down 59%
dairy down 50%

EU exports in general down 63%

Was that article about this year's Rosenmontag? I can't find a date on the page.

The float (linked to in the article) depicting Theresa May shooting herself in the mouth was a classic.

Due to the lockdown there were no big Rosenmontag parades this year. Both the picture and the article are from 2020. But the attitude towards Scotland and the Brexit hasn't changed 😀

@pandora
Aye, thought so.
It's nice to be wanted. 😃
