DExEU – ECONOMIC FORECASTS – 30 January 2018

Dr Julian Lewis: Is it not about time we set up a charity called “Soothsayers Anonymous” for people who simply cannot kick the habit of predicting when conflicts are going to break out, when we are going to have opinion polls that are going to be accurate and when we are going to have economic forecasts regarding the EU that are going to be accurate, even though history has shown time and again that they are not worth the paper they are written on?

[The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union (Mr Steve Baker): That is a very good point, but I am not sure we will make it Government policy to do it.]
