How true. But in November 2016 the OBR made its forecast for 2018/19 in full knowledge we’d still be in the EU. Doh! Are you really a partner at Grant Thornton?! No wonder it’s getting such terrible publicity these days.

The OBR November 2016 forecast was made with the OBR full aware we would not leave until end-March 2019 at earliest. Yet it still (wrongly) more than doubled the 18/19 deficit. What bit of that don’t you understand?

All these stupid letters after your name are befuddling your brain. The OBR deficit forecast without Brexit for 2018/19 was £21bn. It will end up just a tad higher ie no real difference. Doh!

Before Referendum (March 2016), OBR forecast £21bn deficit for 2018/19. After Ref (Nov 2016) f/cast rose to £46bn. By 2018 Spring statement, f/cast still £37bn. In Mon. Budget it will reveal its pre-Ref f/cast was most accurate. So no Brexit-induced collapse in public finances.

This also raises another intriguing question: given tax revenues are so much stronger than expected, might the economy actually be doing a wee bit better than the official numbers suggest right now?
