Remain in EU gets increasingly desperate

‘Economists for Brexit’ back campaign to leave EU

The group, Economists for Brexit,argue that leaving the EU wouldboost the UK economy by four per cent in 10 years
And a divorce from the EU would put the UK outside the EU’s customs union, which puts tariffs on imported goods – and by being free of those constraints, prices in the UK would fall by eight per cent.
The group also proposes a World Trade Organisation agreement with the EU, similar to that enjoyed by the US and China.

The BBC says the report’s authors include Professor Patrick Minford, a former adviser to Baroness Margaret Thatcher, and Gerard Lyons, a former chief economist at Standard Chartered Bank and now an adviser to the London Mayor, Boris Johnson, who is campaigning for Britain to leave the EU.

The economic arguments have so far been tilted towards the Remain camp with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) warning against leaving, as I mentioned in my piece yesterday

So today’s news is a welcome poke in the eye for the Project Fear!

Project Fear

And speaking of Project Fear – he has been a bit quiet in the past few days but now he’s back…

Our old friend Peter Mandelson – is back, warning of the ‘threat’ to Northern Ireland after Brexit. 

As a Europhile and former Commissioner…’he would say that wouldn’t he?’ (Apologies for the slight misquote to the late Mandy Rice Davies.)

Meanwhile in the FT – Project Fear is running wild with Philip Stephens setting out a grim but totally erroneous vision of Britain post-Brexit. He warns of

In a piece in which he divides the electorate into Remain (young) and Leave (old) he misses the point that the campaign to get out of the EU is backed by people of all ages. My experiences in the past few weeks clearly shows that. According to him the young will be most affected – it’s their future at stake! Nonsense! Once again I point you to my myth-busting blog of a few months ago, which dispels someone of the ‘Remainians’ fear tactics  

Desperate Dave sells out

The Daily Express carries the story of our Prime Minister ‘flogging off’ policies to bolster support for the EU. In today’s edition of ‘You (almost) couldn’t make it up, Mr Cameron is reported to  be scrapping parts of his Trade Union Bill and according to The Express it is because union bosses pledged to drum up support for the EU among memberships. There has been no comment from Downing Street but this clearly shows the fear the Remain camp has as momentum starts to gather behind Brexit.

Indeed, The Guardian – carries the story of the PM’s joining former TUC secretary Brendan Barber to issue a warning to Britain’s workers that breaking away from the European Union would pose a “triple threat,” to jobs, wages and prices. Let’s turn this round and suggest to British workers STAYING IN the EU would pose a “triple threat,” to jobs, wages and prices.”

    Rumors That Merkel Has A Ranch In Paraguay Near Bush-The Merkel Rocky Horror Show Did Not Play Well In Germany.

    Angie, Bush and rev Moon all have property near each other.

    Even members of her own party are predicting she will flee to South America like here daddy in Bariloche.

    See the exert, from woman from paraguay. They are spraying the place with toxic chemicals per the zika ruse, but it is causing cancer and sterility. Even the antidote for the elite is not working for them.
