JP Morgan’s Stephanie Flanders: Remainers ‘Exaggerating’ Costs of Brexit


JP Morgan boss Jamie Dimon offered another doom-mongering prediction this morning, claiming Brexit would be “terrible” for the economy and thousands of jobs would be lost. He should read the analysis of his own Chief Market Strategist, one Stephanie Flanders. She says Remain campaigners warning of Armageddon are exaggerating:

“Though we anticipate a vote in favour of remaining in the European Union , a “leave” vote in the coming UK referendum is a distinct possibility and is something that investors should be prepared for. Long term, the costs… of Brexit to the UK economy are probably exaggerated by commentators and campaigners”

Of course, JP Morgan supported the single currency, spends millions lobbying the European Commission and is a major donor to Stronger In. No further questions…

Who Was Ed’s Secret Girlfriend in 2005?

“I first met Ed when I went to a friend’s house for dinner,” Justine Miliband tells the Mirror today:

“I was interested in him, I thought he was good looking and clever and seemed to be unattached. But we just went down a conversational cul-de-sac. Apparently we had nothing in common. He wanted to talk about economics – one of my least favourite subjects. None of our conversations went anywhere. Then I found out he was secretly going out with the woman who had invited us for dinner. I was furious.”

But who was Ed’s secret lover at the time? According to John Rentoul it was Stephanie Flanders…

Flanders has admitted to dating both Ed Balls and Ed Miliband, though friends had always claimed it was in the nineties. Curious…

“Could the secrecy have been because he was a Treasury special adviser Stephanie Flanders was BBC economics journalist”, mused Rentoul on Twitter today. Questions to which the answer is oooooh.
