That's a relatively sobering article. Not least because it's coming from an organization which has been campaigning for leaving the E.U. for the last three years.

Of course, none of that will matter to the hard-core hard brexiteers, since it says things they don't want to hear.

Economists for Free Trade publish a report showing the benefits of Brexit.

As it claims there are more people working in and for the fishing industry than in and for the car making industry I would take it with a pinch of salt.

Quote:
Our report forecasts huge economic gains in the event that Britain leaves the EU under a Super Canada or World Trade Deal. Aided by Brexit gains, it says that by 2025 there could be a dividend of 65 billion per annum for the Treasury to spend.

Perhaps they mean ‘after Brexit, the auto industry will employ fewer people than the fishing industry’,

What is a 'World Trade Deal'?
