Britain performed ‘the GREAT ESCAPE’ by voting to ditch Brussels, leading economist boasts

BRITAIN has executed the “great escape” and will perform “extremely well” after voting to leave the clutches of the EU, a world leading economist has boasted.

Roger Bootle bragged that Britain’s vote to leave the EU was not a disaster like many economists had predicted.

The managing director of economic research consultancy Capital Economics said: “The economy is not that bad, but pessimism sells better than optimism.

"You could be forgiven for thinking the UK is going to hell in a handcart — well, it isn't. Things are actually looking pretty good.”

Mr Bootle labelled the single market as a “disaster” and slammed its “fading” importance.

Even by the European Commission’s own predictions, “over the next 10 to 15 years, 90 per cent of world demand will be generated outside Europe” – highlighting its regressing status.
