Now that the real impact of Brexit is coming clear – up to 2.8 million fewer jobs if we go for a hard Brexit – we can say that Brexit is a Dead Horse!
However at Big Headers the concern is that the current Government will continue to flog the Dead Horse as a brilliant idea!
They will say there is nothing more that the UK needs than a Dead Horse to help our economy, create UK jobs, and take back control (but don’t ask what that actually means – not worth it!).
But the Dead Horse is in fact still being ‘ridden’ by four horsemen and one horse woman of our new British economic apocalypse: Corbyn, Fox, Johnson, Mogg, and May. It’s not going anywhere. It is starting to smell. But these merry stunt jockeys are flogging it hard and fighting each other to stay on the bloated corpse, even though it is already dead.
No deal Brexit – 2,800,000 fewer jobs / £158bn loss per year
Trade agreement Brexit (but outside the single market) – 1,750,000 fewer jobs / £99bn loss per year
Soft Brexit – 700,000 fewer jobs / £39bn loss per year
Remain in EU – No impact on jobs / No £ loss per year. pic.twitter.com/ye0vPka5md
