I've no idea, it may be, it may not be. But then again I don't support Brexit for economical reasons. This graph makes me think that the future is brighter then many would have you believe.
Now show the same chart for the UK alone.

Besides, the fact alone that the y-axis uses a linear scale rather than a logarithmic shows it's intended to deceive.

ETA:
Here's the chart showing the UK's PPP-based share of worldwide GDP as per IMF data, the same Loz's chart above is based on. The chart is a screenie from this page.
