This appalling Brexit betrayal by Civil Servants


ONE of the country’s leading economists says he is ‘appalled’ that his Civil Service counterparts have been plotting to reverse Brexit when they should have been planning post-Brexit policy.

Patrick Minford said: ‘It should be unthinkable for our Civil Service to play politics and conspire against the people’s 2016 decision so nakedly, as demonstrated in Brussels last week by the Civil Service’s chief negotiator.

‘This deceitfulness is bad enough but worse is that their propaganda efforts would lead to terrible economics. My message to Brits is: unlike these self-styled experts, you got this issue right. Yes, you were right to ask for your democracy back, and yes, this is also good for the British economy, contrary to all that Project Fear.’

Patrick Minford, chair of Economists for Free Trade, explains how the experts got it so badly wrong in an article for Brexit Central which you can read here.
