    Lol. It says 'may not'. Not 'will not' - stop making misleading headlines.

    All these headlines are referring to the upper limit of the damage predicted by the IMF, which is a shallow recession and even shallower than the recession predicted by the LOWER limit of the treasury's initial prediction.

    Anything less than maximum damage being dealt with the government failing to mediate the damage AT ALL will NOT result in a recession!

    This is great news guys, you can all safely vote leave now

    Um whatever happens we will enter a recession because there is going to be a global financial crisis this year - don't say I didn't warn you - stock up on food because this is going to be Great Depression-esque

    Did you make that yourself? Seems to contradict other reports.

    Reminds me of Gove the other night:

    The BoE, IMF et al are all pawns of Osborne and the EU, except when we agree with them.

    It is ironic that when Brexiters hear what they want to hear, they make everyone hear it too. Yet when the IMF said a Brexit would have negative consequences all we heard from Brexiters was 'they don't want us to leave the EU because it's better for them if we're in it'.

    Whilst the Remain campaign has been totally inefficient in its ability to rally enthusiastic support and positively make its message heard, the Brexit campaign has relied on 'ignoring the experts' (because what do they know?) and largely shouty, angry, incoherent argument. Indeed, the only person ever - including politicians and journalists - who has made me think 'hmm' about the whole thing was sleepysnooze when he discussed protectionist policy.

    More like forever... :rolleyes:

    But in any case, it'll probably take quite more than just 2 years to settle everything down.

    So, instead of relying on Media headlines, I took the liberty of reading the report and snapping a few core sections from the report, that back up my points made elsewhere. See images below.

    These fairly conclusively show that the economic impacts have not been discredited.

    the Man on the Clapham Autobus is utterly baffled by this tidal wave of factoids.

    it takes the impact of real-life events to give traction to voters.
