Strong Brexit economic perspective from Chris Johns - also not hesitating to call out Theresa May's 'lying' and re-invention of messrs Johnson, Farage and Hannan's contentions on EU 'free trade' prior to the vote, now airbrushed under the carpet.
You cannot ignore geography and gravity: loss of free trade with Europe will have costs vastly in excess of the gains from trade with places further afield. Specifically, UK trade could get a 2.2 per cent boost from non-EU free-trade arrangements but will suffer a 22 per cent hit from loss of single market access. Unanswered questions: One of the big unanswered questions focuses the on the jobs that migrants do. They are many and varied, often highly skilled. But there are plenty in the caring and hospitality sectors that are not typically skilled. And they are increasingly done by migrants. Who in their wildest imagination imagines that British workers are suddenly going to do all those jobs once the immigrants stop coming?
