Britain has world’s top economy
Jan 6, 2017
Britain ended last year as the strongest of the world’s advanced economies with growth accelerating in the six months after the Brexit vote, it was revealed yesterday.
Business activity hit a 17-month high last month, meaning that the economy grew by 2.2 per cent last year — more than the six other leading nations, including the US, Germany and Japan.
Far from slowing after the referendum in June, as predicted by the Treasury and Bank of England, growth appeared to have improved. GDP grew at 0.3 per cent and 0.6 per cent in the first two quarters of last year, compared with 0.6 per cent and an estimated 0.5 per cent in the final period.
(For those not particularly familiar with this term, Brexit stands for BRitish EXIT from the European Union. On June 23, 2016, contrary to the views of the pollsters, the citizens of the UK voted to leave the European Union.)
Since the Brexit vote on June 23, 2016 and the election of Donald Trump in the USA on November 8, 2016, we are seeing more excitement related to the economies of the USA and the UK.
The mainstream media talked of economic disaster for the UK, which obviously has not hit it yet. The mainstream media also made it sound like a Donald Trump victory would cause an immediate economic decline in the USA.
The mainstream media has, thus far, been wrong on those points.

“The prime minister suggested it would be a good idea for key staff from both teams to meet. President-elect Trump agreed this would be useful,” Downing Street said in a statement sent to TIME. “We are pleased to have been able to make that happen and the prime minister looks forward to visiting the new president in the spring.”
It’s just the latest move by May to curry favor with the incoming president, as the U.K. seeks to build new trading relationships ahead of its withdrawal from the E.U. Last week she distanced the U.K. from the current administration in Washington by criticizing a speech made by John Kerry on Israeli settlements as “inappropriate.”
And, unlike German Chancellor Angela Merkel, May gave Trump a wholehearted congratulations on his shock presidential election victory last November, telling him that the U.K. and U.S. “are, and will remain, strong and close partners on trade, security and defence.” http://time.com/4625607/theresa-may-donald-trump-meeting/
British Prime Minister Theresa May is planning on triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty in March 2017, which starts a two-year clock for the official departure of the UK from the European Union. That is actually not a lot of time considering the complicated nature of the EU and trade agreements. So, we may see that the UK will be out of the EU by the Spring of 2019.
At that time, it will be free to have its own deals with other nations, like the USA. Donald Trump called for direct deals with the UK within hours of when the Brexit results were known. Donald Trump was one of the only major leaders outside of the UK to publicly support the Brexit-leave vote before the election last June.
The departure of the UK from the EU is beginning to move the UK closer to the USA on more trade matters. I also believe that one-day it will come back to haunt the UK. The EU leadership is not pleased that the UK will be leaving the EU. Trade issues that Europe will have with the USA and UK will greatly upset the Europeans. One-day, sadly, the end-time European Beast power will seek and gain revenge (Daniel 8:24; 11:39).
While interim years will vary, this will not turn out well for the UK, nor ultimately the USA (see also Will the Anglo-Saxon Nations be Divided and Have People Taken as Slaves?).

Forbes’ Brexit Monster is the Beast of Revelation Various ones have been properly convinced that there is a plan for a European superstate. Forbes’ writer Tom Worstall wrote that the Brexit vote was about the United Kingdom “not joining the monster of the European Union to come.” The Bible tells of a Beast monster that will arise in the end times in Europe. Dr. Thiel cites news reports, as well as the Old and New Testaments, to show that the monster many fear will arise in Europe, despite the vote by the British to exit the European Union.
