    Default Brexit - reassuringly expensive

    Brexit will soon have cost the UK more than all of its payments to the EU over the last 47 years put together

    According to research by Bloomberg Economics, the cost of the UK's vote to leave has already reached £130 billion, with a further £70 billion likely to be added by the end of 2020.

    That almost eclipses the total amount the UK will have paid towards the EU budget over the past 47 years.

    It's only "£200 billion in lost economic growth" so a guess. No-one knows how staying would have worked out. Perhaps we'd have had lower growth and lost £200 trillion. Anyway, Bloomberg Economics are remoaners, and who listens to experts anyway.

    Oh look... a unicorn!

    Turnover is not revenue.

    GDP growth is not the same kind of things as budget expenditure (such as EU payments)

    Leavers must be identified and given a shafting sized tax code.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Most of them don't work, being either unemployed or retired. Instead, let's cut state pensions and unemployment benefits It's a good Tory policy too, so the Boris voters should be in full support
