Opinion: I urge you to ignore the Brexit scaremongers

“Austerity is coming to an end but discipline will remain” were the memorable words from the chancellor during the government’s 2018 Autumn Budget.”
“As Labour’s mess is cleared up, the future is looking very bright for our country.
This government’s fiscal management means we are taking a balanced approach at getting the debt down.
While Corbyn’s strategy is to increase our taxes and surge our debt, the Conservatives are letting people keep more of what they earn.
This is not only equating to an income tax cut for over 32 million people, but a cut in business rates for our high streets, and freezing fuel duty for the ninth year running to name a few.
All of this is achievable because our country remains a friendly place to do business, we liberalise trade, and keep the regulatory burden for companies low.
In fact, the UK ranks second in the world for attracting foreign direct investment, one place behind China.
Despite the Treasury’s ludicrous warning that GDP could fall by up to 6per cent and unemployment soar by up to 800,000 in the first two years after a Brexit vote, it is now evident that we are growing faster than the Eurozone this quarter, and the unemployment rate remains at its lowest since 1975. Due to the buoyancy in our economy, the government are collecting more tax revenue than ever which also means billions extra for our public services.
This is why I urge people to ignore the scaremongers, who attempt to weaken our hand during Brexit negotiations, and talk down our country.
This is not the time to manage our decline, but ensure a brighter future for generations to come.”
