No Patricia. I'm saying if you base every argument on economic outcomes only, you can end up making the wrong decision.
Money isn't everything though from what I hear from the BBC and the BoE it's the only thing.
And yes Britain was bankrupt the day WW II ended.
We may not be speaking Gerrman now, but we will need Germany's, and only Germany's, blessing to leave the EU in one piece.Forget the other 26, they are make weights.
I think the Germans would be stupid to allow such an important contributor to the EU economy to leave.
And I still think we will be remaining in the EU, without a second referendum.
I think a second referendum would be an awful gamble, and hugely damaging for the country.
The polls mean nothing. I've probably said this before, but according to the polls we voted to remain in the EU, and Hilary Clinton is President of the USA.
One last word on the BoE. The Brexit scenarios published by the Bank , I think there were 4 or 5, included every scenario bar one - that we remain in the EU.
The BoE is maintaining , what Richard Nixon, bless him, used to call plausible deniabilty.
When we do stay in they'll be able to say, "Well we didn't see that coming"
The least messy way out of this will be to withdraw Article 50, and then the real fun and games will start.
On the subject of impartiality, that's a canard.
Kamal Ahmed the Editor of BBC News is to be applauded for his honesty in saying the considered opinion of the experts/ establishment , is that with Brexit the people made the wrong decision. The BBC's job is to reflect this, not to give equal credence to Leave/Remain arguments. It's analogous to the Climate Change argument,
That's why any good economic data is prefaced by "In spite of Brexit..." , poor economic data is prefaced by"Concerns over Brexit...". That is BBC policy.
Also, there are only people looking for a "hard Brexit" never a " hard Remain".
In the pea and shell game semantics is everything.
It's best not trying to understand any of this or even argue about it. The decision will be made for us.
Brexit means Brexit,? Have none of you ever watched Being There starring Peter Sellers. A simple minded gardener spouts nonsense phrases which people construe as having a profound significance that just isn't there. The novel is worth a read as well.
Our job is to pay our taxes and die. Just make sure you've paid all your taxes before you die.
I'm now going back to posting pictures, it's more fun.
Tell me when this is all over.
