Even EU bosses say Britain is booming since historic Brexit vote
EU BOSSES admitted yesterday that Britain’s economy is thriving since the Brexit vote. They predicted that the UK will grow by 1.5 per cent this year.
That is a significant increase from the gloomy forecast of just one per cent growth made by Brussels last autumn following the UK’s historic decision to leave.
The admission that the doom merchants were wrong came in a Winter Economic Forecast from the European Commission, saying the British economy had “maintained momentum” since the referendum last June.
The news was “the final nail in the coffin for Project Fear predications that Brexit would damage the economy,” said Tory MP Maria Caulfield, a member of the Commons EU Exit Committee.
