Brexiteers have invested their political careers into the Brexit project and the people’s hard-earned money too!
Yep, that’s the figure, £40 billion, the amount the Brexit vote has cost this country so far — what a wonderful bunch of patriotic imbeciles the Brexiteers have proved to be!
Speaking to a parliamentary committee Mark Carney, the Governor of the Bank of England said this week:
“If you look at where the economy is today, relative to that forecast, it’s more than 1 per cent below where it was despite very large stimulus provided by the Bank of England, a fiscal easing by the government and global and European economies, which are much much stronger than they were previously.”
“If you adjust for those factors, the economy is about one and three-quarters — one and a half, one and three-quarters, up to 2 per cent — lower than it would have been.”
“Real household incomes are about £900 per household lower than we forecast in May of 2016, which is a lot of money.”
It wouldn’t be so bad if the Brexiteers had just fessed up and admitted they were wrong, but no, they have invested their political careers into the Brexit project, and there’s no way in hell they are going to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the nation.
And what’s the answer from those who refuse to abandon their suicidal path to self-glorification? That would be more of the anti-expert bullshit first effectively familiarised by
