We can have confidence in Britain’s capabilities without having to believe in Gove’s economic miracle. Anyway, there’s a huge contradiction at the heart of the leave campaign’s claim. They are saying; trust me because all the others are wrong. A long list of experts says; REMAIN is best option out of the two but Gove says the opposite.
Let’s consider this situation. If all the calculations of the world’s forecasters are all wrong, then major decisions are being poorly made across the globe. Investments and the spending of Governments are in error. The inevitable conclusion from this is that chaos and recession are imminent and inevitable. In such an event, Britain would be impacted regardless of being IN or OUT of the EU. Whatever happens; “No man is an island”.
However, if the calculations of the worlds forecasters are at least half way right there is a chance of continuing recovery and stability. There’s a chance risk is being managed and that decisions based on those forecasts are sound. To me this scenario seems by far the most plausible and a better bet.
It’s true we should not choose our vote solely on the basis of what experts say, particularly economists but it would be foolish to ignore their information. You can drive a car by looking out of the window and daydreaming but its far safer to pay attention and glance down at the instruments from time to time.
Britain is already a “progressive beacon” in the world. That position has been reached because we have embraced partnerships and understand how to work with others. Being in the EU does not stop Britain projecting its influence. In fact, leaving the EU would be a powerful negative signal to everyone we work with around the globe.
I conclude that the overwhelming case to REMAIN in the EU has not changed in the last weeks.
