Optimism in British factories soars to 22 year high

According to a survey published by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), optimism among British factories has soared to a 22-year high due to a post-Leave export boom. Optimism in industry is now at its highest since February 1995.

The survey showed export orders growing at their fastest pace since December 2013.

A CBI spokesman said: “The past fall in the pound seems finally to be helping lift demand for UK manufactured exports, which rose at one of the fastest paces in this survey’s history”.

This news comes just weeks after the European Commission was forced to admit that the British economy had “maintained momentum” since last year’s referendum, despite predictions of economic Armageddon from the establishment.

We can expect more great economic news as Britain re-engages with the rest of the world, taking our place on the world stage and finally free to negotiate global trade deals.
