    Selective quoting there. The bit where you write "...." actually says:



    This is right alongside



    Best case +1.6%; worst case -2.2%. Expected range -0.8% to 0.6%.

    That hardly endorses Leave!

    You originally asked for just one economic forecast/scenario suggesting Brexit would be beneficial I provided a link showing two out of four possible scenarios where this would be the case. Which contradicts/disproves your 'It doesn't predict a better outcome for our economy if we Leave than if we Remain though' . statement.

    I'm not the one claiming these spurious projections are in any way meaningful or accurate. Have you had a look for other pro Brexit economic forecasts yet?
    'Our system rests to a large extent on the notion that we accept the result of free and fair elections with good grace, even if we’ve lost, and get on with making the best of it.'

      That hardly endorses Leave, and I don't think it cancels out any of the analyses that support Remain.
      ?So in effect, not much, if any better than what we have now. Add to that the additional beauracracy, the uncertainty and instability of the markets, the possible huge job losses as big businesses move their operations away from the UK, the break-up of the union as Scotland vote to vote out of the UK, the huge brain drain...is all this worth it to stop immigrants coming to this country. Millions are already here! Are the Brexiters going chuck these people out like Nazi Germany? It's a complete and utter fantasy!!!

      What a ragtag bunch of extremist wierdos Gove, Johnson, Farage, Galloway and Co. are! Do you really want to entrust our nation's economic future on these cretins??

      But I don't think it does. It says that if we leave, the effect on our economy would be somewhere in the range -2.2% to +1.6, and probably in the range -0.8% to +0.6%.

      I'll quite happily make the same statement again: It doesn't predict a better outcome for our economy if we Leave than if we Remain.

      Have you had a look for other pro Brexit economic forecasts yet?
      No, to be honest I've spent most of my time analysing forecasts for the next three Championship games. I honestly believe though that if one existed, the Leave camp (and the print media) would be shouting about it from the rooftops. They're not though, they're just shouting "Fear! Fear!" at those in favour of Remain.

      what about the additional bureaucracy, the uncertainty of the markets, possible job losses as big businesses move operations away from the UK, and the breakup of the union as Scotland vote to leave? why do the In crowd pretend that none of these things are likely if we stay in the EU? its worth noting that Gove and Johnson aren't anti-immigration, Farage wasn't originally until they hitched onto that bandwagon. its hardly an extremist point of view to want to govern yourself rather than hand over powers to a foreign nation. If Brexit was about just immigration, we'd never had the referendum.

      You really are a good advert to making people take intelligence tests before being allowed to vote.

      Your right, these things can happen whether we are IN or OUT, business will arrive, business will leave, jobs will come, jobs will go. Just wish people could see that part. It's very convenient to blame everything on Brexit.

      keep up the good work re nazis and hard right fanatics like Galloway and Sol Campbell, your retro outlook to the debate is refreshing in an OCD sort of way.
      ps millions of immigrants already here, is not and never will be a valid reason for simply allowing millions more

      Interview didn't go well for the Remain argument. It's worth watching.
