    The report, commissioned by the campaign group Our Future, Our Choice, projected the loss of earnings between now and 2050 – accounting for a 30-year career for most young people.

    It used models by Oxford University economist Tommy Peto, partly based on the Brexit briefing papers, which set out its impact over the next 15 years, which showed that the Norway model would have the least adverse financial impact on young people.

    That's rich coming from you. You've managed at least 1000 posts without mentioning a single fact of any kind.

    It's all right I am still sore about parliament voting for a plastic bag tax killing my chances of a foursome with Elle MacPherson and the Minogue sisters! That is about as fact based as these projections.

    Aside from that being about half a Swiss Franc by then, as OG points out - what's the calculation for other scenarios?

    1. Best case no-deal
    2. Best/Worst case BRINO
    3. Best/Worst case giving it up and deciding not to leave?
    4. Best/Worst case of transitioning for ever and ever and ever. (It's a local EU for local people).
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Not everybody, but the Politicos that are currently orchestrating the protests ably supported by needy snowflakes will be.

    So as long as it is fair.

    And the gormless cretins are hoovering it all up too. How far we have fallen.
