The Office of Budget responsibility has laid out the results of its latest study: A No–Deal Brexit could give Britain a £30billion economic hit. Of course, leading Brexiteers immediately denounced the findings as “poppycock and hogwash”, before demanding everyone involved in the study and anyone who had believed it should be hung for treason.
The Office presented a balanced look at the impacts a no-deal Brexit could have, and expected the findings to be taken seriously and studied by the relevant people.
Instead MP Mark Francois showed what he thought of the study by eating it live on the BBC whilst shouting about the sovereignty of the British people.
The study suggests that the benefit of not paying the £39billion divorce bill will be outweighed by the amount of extra borrowing the country will have to do as a whole.
This was met with animalistic howls of derision and lots of puffing of cheeks as Prime Minister-in-waiting, Boris Johnson said:
"This study was clearly studied by people who simply do not believe in Brexit. What is the point of studies, careful consideration or considered debate when you have faith? Have faith in Brexit or be forever dammed to the yoke of Europe.
Members from the study group have already suffered abuse at the hands of heroic Brexiteers with a number of them having the study knocked out of their hands as they walked past hardline MPs..
One such MP said:
"This is our finest hour! Our Dunkirk! Our Suez! We will not turn back from the faithless heathens that run our fair country! We will prevail, and Brexit will be ours!"
