The author of the Independent article quoted below doesn’t think much of the new ‘Brexit cost’ bus, it seems:

That number, by the way, as sensationally leaked a number of weeks ago, is the end point of economic forecasts projected 15 years into the future, after 15 years’ worth of estimated reductions in growth have all been compounded together.

Which is not to say they’re not accurate, nor should we dwell too long on the fact that, had similar projections been published 15 years ago for the present day, they would not take into account such innovations as the iPhone, all its apps, Facebook, WiFi and well, you get the gist.

But then, Tom Peck (for it was he) seems to think the Leave campaign was a thing of “relentless brilliance”, whereas most of us now know it was a litany of lies from beginning to end – including the so-called ‘Brexit bus’ which lied about the amount of money given to the EU by the UK every week.

He continues:

But, you know, when set against the thing you’re supposedly satirising, which, like it or loathe it, was the gross amount the UK could give to the EU each week, and would, if it wishes, be free to give to the NHS after we leave, then it is hard to avoid remembering which side won the referendum and which side didn’t and, possibly, why.

Yes indeed. The Leave side won because it bombarded the easily-led with persuasive lies.

It seems odd that he’s now trying to disparage Remainers for trying the same tactic, with the most accurate (predicted) figures available.
