Treasury Can Predict Future to 2030, Can’t Work Out Cost of Brexit Report

George Osborne’s report on Brexit wants us to believe the Treasury can predict the future as far away as 2030, yet they can’t even tell us how much the report cost to produce. In a written question to the Chancellor Michael Fabricant asked for cost of producing the report and how many man-hours it took in total. David Gauke replied:

The Treasury is appropriately resourced to support the Government’s priorities in Europe. However, it is not practical to identify full-time equivalent staff numbers.”

They can provide a cost analysis for 14 years in the future, but not something that happened in the last few weeks!

Quote of the Day

Julie Burchill on the bigotry of remainers…

They have felt free to indulge in the forbidden taste-thrill of bigotry for once in their self-censoring lives. The parasexual kick derived from hating the old and the working-class has energised a supine and smug ruling-class who have outed themselves as the true enemy within.”
