While the lifting of coronavirus pandemic restrictions has put the cogs in motion again, the war in Ukraine is having a catastrophic effect on economies in Europe.

United Nations Conference on Trade and Development has said it now expects the global economy to grow by 2.6 percent, having previously expected to see an expansion of 3.6 percent.

Much of the slowdown will occur within the eurozone, where the body now expects to see growth of a mere 1.7 percent, half of what it had previously expected.

Recent reports of empty shelves in Spanish supermarkets have caused some Brexit supporters to question why Brexit was ever blamed for shortages on British shelves when there may have been other issues at play.

Twitter user, @jfwduffield, responded to one report about Spanish supermarket shortages by writing: “Brexit strikes again.”

@ItsonlymeClara said: “Must be because of Brexit. Oh hang on…”

@notayesmansecon wrote: “It is amazing what Brexit has done!”

In 2021, global supply chain issues caused some UK shops to be left without plentiful stock, which some observers blamed on Britain leaving the bloc.

So, do you think Brexit is to blame for the UK and Europe’s economic problems?
