Fresh from their multitude of apologies for miscalculating that the sky would fall in post-Brexit, the Bank of England seems to have backtracked…and gone one further.
Yes, Ian McCafferty, who sits on the Bank’s all-mighty monetary policy committee, said the referendum was an ‘unusual event’ that hit the economy “such as 9/11”.
Whilst stuck in his office coming up with incorrect scaremongering forecasts, it seems that Mr McCafferty fails to realise that whilst 9/11 symbolised an attack on the very heart of a Western democracy, Brexit was a large demonstration of democracy, freedom and optimism.
It seems ‘Project Fear’ has morphed into ‘Project Compare Brexit to Bin Laden’.
