UK economy ends 2019 on back foot as Brexit turmoil takes it toll

The UK’s economy stagnated during the last quarter of 2019, as the political turmoil and uncertainty surrounding Brexit weighed heavily.

Karim Yousfi, chief global strategist at Audacity Capital, said: “That’s one more bullet dodged by the UK’s fragile economy. After a frustratingly stop-start year, the economy limped to the end of 2019 and avoided a contraction by the narrowest possible margin. By the lacklustre standards of the past few years, this is a passable GDP report.”
