A lot of the buzz around the UK’s Brexit negotiations is that it’s a little like a bubble bursting.
But if you look at it in context, it’s actually pretty normal.
The UK is a lot like any other country, and a lot of its problems are the result of its economic situation.
Read more In a country that’s still recovering from the financial crash, and with its own health service, it also has a huge population of people that’s working hard, but not in full-time employment.
There’s also a huge public sector, and it’s an area where, despite being in a relatively prosperous economic environment, it is still struggling to get people into work.
The UK’s unemployment rate in the last financial year was 7.3%, which is far lower than the OECD average of 13.1%.
But even that’s lower than it was before the financial crisis, and the unemployment rate is actually higher than it used to be.
We’ve seen some good news in recent years, particularly since the financial collapse, and there are many positive signs, such as the UK still has the lowest unemployment rate of any major country, at 4.7%.
But, as we’ve seen with the eurozone, the UK has also been hit by the economic downturn and, as a result, its unemployment rate has fallen by a lot.
So, while it’s easy to see that the UK might be heading into a post-Brexit world, it isn’t entirely obvious that the Brexit process will lead to the UK becoming the EU’s UK, as many people think it would.
In fact, Brexit has already led to some real changes to the country’s economy, as the Brexiters have pushed for a series of trade agreements with the EU, including the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which has been signed and ratified by all EU member states, including Germany.
There have also been proposals to scrap the EU-UK free trade deal (TTFP), which would be seen as a significant blow to the British economy, and which would have seen Britain lose access to the EU market for goods and services.
But while the Brexit discussions are at the moment taking place in the European Parliament, the European Commission has actually started negotiating with the UK government, which will decide whether or not to approve the deal.
As a result of this, the EU has already started to get closer to finalising its Brexit plan, and some of the changes that it wants to see in the UK are already starting to come into effect.

With Brexit in full swing, we can expect to see a lot more discussion on what the UK will be doing after Brexit.
