Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

It's interesting to hear all the Tory concern for the impact a few weeks shutdown will do to the economy... while at the same time they don't seem to have any concern about the impact walking away from from every trade agreement they have and access to the European financial services market will have...
This has already been covered! It's all about trade-offs, but for starters, the economic recession we're about to see thanks to the Coronavirus is about 10 times worse (probably more) than the WORST no-deal economic forecast for a no-deal Brexit. And there was nothing to prove that this would have even happened - that's the problem with models be it Climate or Economic, one can always input the data to get the result one wants to see.

At present, people see the economic price as a worthwhile trade-off to saving people's lives. Brexiteer's see national sovereignty and being outside a bureaucratic, expansionist behemoth as worthwhile trade-off to the risk of slower economic growth.
