    Actually pretty much everyone in The City predicted it. I will however say that most of the people trying to suggest that anybody who isn't pro-EU is a big dumb dumb were the same people who thought that joining the single currency would be a good idea, even though all common sense suggested it wouldn't.

    Sometimes you've got to concede that there are intelligent points to be made for both sides of a debate but you've also sometimes got to remember that common sense has a place over academics and journos and the like who've never had a real job in their lives and have lived in a bubble the entire time.
    What is a "real job"?

    Again this shows the desperation of the Brexit campaign.
    As others have mentioned, if economists said Brexit would be good we'd never hear the end of it, but since they are saying otherwise, apparently they cannot be trusted.

    Yeah rather than trust economists let's trust Gove and Johnson because both of them predicted the 2008 crash.

    Yes economists can get things wrong, doesn't mean you should totally disregard their opinions forever more...
    Sir Alex Ferguson made some awful signings, does that mean we should never have trusted him ever because he got some things wrong?

    Besides, most actually did predict the 2008 crash. They were simply ignored because their views did not fit the neoliberal narrative of the time.
