LETTER: Brexit - We cannot afford a bad deal
Over 18 months ago, the UK electorate voted narrowly to leave the EU in the belief that leaving would improve the UK. Looking at the possible ways forward, politicians said no-one voted to be poorer.
However, the recently leaked UK Government forecasts show that each of three possible outcomes of Brexit would do that – make us poorer. In the case of leaving with no deal – which appears to be a possibility and which some advocate – growth of the economy would be reduced by eight per cent over the next 15 years.
