When we say all the evidence points to Brexit making us poorer, this is what we mean
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)
