This is the hard truth that shows the harshness of the Tories’ NHS pay offer, and the lie it represents.

If the UK plunges out of the EU with no free trade agreement, then prices of food and drink are likely to rise by one-sixth.

That is a huge mark-up, and one that makes the Tories’ below-inflation pay increase for NHS staff even more of a mockery than it already is.

If the UK leaves the European Union in the way Theresa May seems determined to take it, then the majority of the population will be forced into food poverty – at a time when wages will have been deliberately (and wrongly) depressed for more than eight years.

The rich will do quite all right, thank you very much.

But the UK will become no better than a corrupt Third World dictatorship.

Food and drink prices are set to soar under even the best potential Brexit outcome, a secret study reveals.

The Brexit Committee has released the EU Exit Analysis – Cross Whitehall Briefing six weeks after parts were leaked.

It predicts non-tariff barriers would raise prices 8% to 17%, depending on whether we fell under European Economic Area rules, a free trade pact or World Trade Organisation terms.
