    Or as Patrick Minford of Economists for Brexit says:

    Over time, if we left the EU, it seems likely that we would mostly eliminate manufacturing, leaving mainly industries such as design, marketing and hi-tech. But this shouldn’t scare us.

    Britain is good at putting on a suit and selling to other nations.

    Around half of young adults now go to university, ending up in professions such as finance or law, while the making of things such as car parts or carpentry has hugely shrunk — but there will always be jobs for people without sophisticated skills.

    It would help if the government supported technology instead of attacking it.

    They should hypothecate for this purpose the funds they retrospectively recover from dishonest IT contractors.

    I thought a lower pound would boost exports or does that only apply to scones and jam?
