A viral tweet is doing the rounds on social media after highlighting the compelling body of evidence that suggests Brexit will make us all poorer.
The government’s leaked impact report that came to light in March of this year confirmed most of our fears that every region in Britain will be left economically worse off by Brexit.
And with negotiations still to be completed, it found the more divergence from European regulations and trade the UK goes for, the worse the economic fall out will be.
The study can be added to a mounting body of evidence that suggests Brexit will make us poorer as a nation.
As @tempora_magda notes on Twitter, those saying Brexit will make us poorer include:
- 97% of academics
- ALL of big business (CBI)
- Every former PM alive
- World Bank
- Every major bank
- HM Treasury
And those who believe it is a good idea are:
- Boris Johnson (proven liar)
- Nigel Farage (proven liar)
- Jacob Rees-Mogg (proven liar)
- Steve Baker (proven liar)
Real issues are being “swept under the carpet” thanks to Brexit and “abstract notions of sovereignty”
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
