    You realise we haven't actually left the EU, right? And that the government won't be enacting Article 50 until next year at the earliest?

    Saying that anyone has been proved right or wrong at this stage is pure idiocy.

    To link normal minor fluctuation to Brexit is ludicrous at best, retarded at worst.

    Probably because those predictions were based on something that has not happened. They were based on the plan that Britain would activate article 50 straight away

    Come on that is ridiculous ... Those of us who has a brain (not in an insulting way) would know that the pound has had it's ups and down many times way before Brexit started and I'm struggling to comprehend the ignorance here. If we're beating targets for growth during Brexit this is good for economic stability but to use this as an argument against "Remainers" doesn't add up, it's weak and if not rather pointless.

    No, they were not. The Treasury forecast predicted an immediate post-vote 0.1% loss in GDP, but the Treasury did not have in place any contingency plans for Brexit, and therefore did not make any assumptions about the triggering of Article 50. Don't spout lies just because it suits the lies you spouted before.

    If we experienced a 0.5% contraction, you would all be blaming it on Brexit.

    I don't doubt that for a second.

    but we are still in the EU? we are still using their trade agreements, we still have membership of the single market, we haven't lost any of the favourable things about being part of the EU because we haven't enacted article 50 yet

    But are not exactly the same arguments used by remainers all the time? When something bad happens - that's because of the impending Brexit. When something good happens - well Brexit hasn't happened yet - so it can't be anything to do with that.

    This rhetoric is getting tiring, can you not just accept that the campaign was bogus, the treasury declaration, which is what you all clung to, was this would be the first of 4 quarters of contraction.

    Admit it, the apocalypse isn't coming.

    Really? You said that it's nonsense to say whether anyone's been proven wrong or right about the immediate effect of a Brexit vote.

    You choose to ignore how utterly wrong the economic predictions have been, which, contrary to your belief, did NOT make any assumption about triggering Article 50 suddenly. They are wrong, yet you choose to ignore it. You also ignore the lies that went along with the economic predictions, including this prediction that UK car manufacturers would lose confidence and cease production - the exact opposite has happened and now you question the relevance. Just laughable.

    I ask you this: If we experienced a 0.5% contraction, would you blame that on Brexit?

    Of course you would.

    The thing is with remainers - they actually want the country to fail. There's no space intellectually for any other outcome.

    They want the economy to do badly, as if it does well, they will be completely unable to accept that everything they believed was untrue. They're in a lose/lose situation.
