Treasury Brexit Forecasts

The Chancellor and his Treasury team presented his departments best effort in predicting the financial outcomes of the UK leaving the EU. They looked at several options, Canada, Norway, for instance, comparing them unfavourably against the 'Remain' figures. What else! They wouldn't have published a 200 page report that didn't support Cameron's position with project fear. It is blackmail; vote 'Remain' or else.

As with all economic forecasts, especially those augmented by ridiculous equations, the figures cannot be either verified or relied upon to give an accurate picture of the future. What can, however, be verified is that Brexit allows the UK to recover more control over its destiny. It gives back to the UK its total sovereignty at a time when commentators are becoming increasingly sceptical about the future of the EU and the Euro. What about controlling immigration? what about the supremacy of the UK's Supreme Court over the EU Court of Human Rights? what about having our governance in the hands of elected politicians, not ludicrously highly paid and unelected officials? It is about these uncostable factors that Osborne has nothing to say. He is happy to bargain the Country's soul, our traditions and values for MONEY, for financial considerations only when many other, more patriotic, Tories are advocating the 'Leave' option. He and his team do not care that the small island is overrun with people from eastern Europe and beyond, diluting the UK's incredible character, infusing it with different and ALIEN cultures and practices, changing our inner cities beyond recognition with ghettos. The Country can't rely on Corbyn and the Labour Party who have pinned their colours to the Socialist EU mast that promises Workers and Trade Union rights. Not responsibilities, you note.

The Chancellor and his team do not seem to realise that the citizens of the UK know that there is much more to Sovereignty than money. The Chancellor and his team are nothing more than pimps selling the Country's honour to foreigners for cash.
