It's not very surprising to see that the referendum result has seen a slowdown in economic activity. Yet this could be a knee jerk reaction to uncertainty and maybe a short lived downturn. If the media convince us all it will be doom and gloom, then we won't go shopping and will bring a recession upon ourselves. In real terms what has changed? Still got your job? Unemployment fell again and Adzuna reported that there are two jobs advertised for every candidate so I suspect that not only have you still got your job, but you could easily go out and get another one. The only thing that has got more expensive is travel, so have a staycation. Important for us all to remain productive and work our way to prosperity in these uncertain times
