So.... Brexit. Nearly all informed commentators believe that a no-deal Brexit will be very bad for the whole of the UK and NI in particular. The Government published a paper setting out those risks. Despite this, there are many people, some highly intelligent who simply deny any evidence put in front of them.
We were told exactly the same rubbish when we were in the ERM
We were told it was all wonderful
We were told there was no alternative
All the informed commentators spouted off the same drivel.
Interest rates were raised and raised to keep us in the 'bounds'
Eventually of course it because obvious that all the claims by HMG were a load of twaddle and HMG in the guise of Mr Lamont did a huge u turn and abandoned the ERM withdrawing the £ from the mechanism dropping interest rates to more sensible levels immediately.
After that of course we heard no more about the ERM experiment and it's not talked about anymore.
So no, no one believes the biased reports from those who job's it is to be biased. As the US author Upton Sinclair remarked: It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his entire job and monetary income rely on him not understanding it.
..and I have not even yest mentioned Iraqi Weapons of mass destruction fantasy promulgated by HMG and its lackey's nor the US Secretary of State Colin Powell standing up in the UN brandishing the "evidence"
