Will The Uk Gov Deliberately Crash The Economy If We Brexit?

Recommended Posts

We all know the UK government can trigger a crash in a dozen different ways. In fact, it's never been easier.

Osborne and Cameron have described Armageddon over and over if we Brexit.

If we Brexited and the UK actually did quite well, then the EU project would be in trouble - other countries would see the UK and want their own exits. That would never be allowed to happen. The UK would have to crash if we Brexited.

So basically we have the following choice:-

1) Remain, and keep limping along

2) Brexit and the UK government will crash the economy as a lesson to other EU countries.

Simple answer. No.

If they were already out of the EU they would have no reason to defend it. Frankly this is utter crazy talk.

Also, another brexit post and not about 'house prices and the economy'.

I think there's a very good chance that George and Dave will kick the props away if we Brexit.

Partly out of spite, partly to poison Boris' well, and partly out of utter relief that they they have the perfect cover.

I think Yes. It has little to do with defending the EU Institution, much more The Moron's legacy, and The Idiot's credibility with the Party. The EU would assist, as it would show how "terrible" Life would be outside their gang.

I cannot think that intentionally crashing the economy is more direct, and therefore deserves a place in "house prices AND THE ECONOMY".

I agree with the OP -

If we vote to leave then we have 2 years until we actually exit (unless we repeal ECA72 and exit immediately - which is unlikely to ever happen. Even UKIP don't favour this option)

So we're left with a scenario where if the economy collapsed "due to Brexit" then the Government could simply say "we told you so" hold another referendum in a year's time to see if we give the right decision this time... and if we do then it' like we never left! - and at the same time would destroy UKIP and keep us locked int the EU forever

I'd guarantee that this option is on the table... In a big office in Berlin (or a bunker in Dachau anyway)

It's a shame Osborne & Cameron did not state at the outset that they would stand down in the event of Brexit.

Actually, it's shameful that UK MPs's are held in such low esteem.

Performance related pay, with criteria including, integrity, activity in the constituency and approval by the constituents would create some focus.

Well the general consensus around this place is we have been teetering on the brink of recession and a house price correction for the last six months ,if you ask me i think Dave&co want out as they have now clearly laid the blame on brexit for what has looked inevitable for over six months ,also worth remembering they have their hands tie behind their backs when it comes to recession with IR @0.5%

I think if the country votes for Brexit, the Government and other parties/agencies/banks etc will collectively pull the plug. Brexit will provide the perfect cover and blame for all the financial ills.

After that, the stupid population will be shouting to re-join/stay in Europe.

As it'll take 2 years to leave the eu after the vote it'll be amusing to hear the explanations blaming Brexit while actually still being inside the eu - likely it'll be something made up like investors' loss of confidence.

In any event the economy will be timed to go through a bit of a crash (increased crash) in the next 2 years as part of the electoral cycle then afterwards some sort of short term boost as the 2020 election comes into view.

If the vote is Bremain they'll have some other reason lined up to blame for the crash - it started in China most like.

By 2020 whatever happens it'll still be look how we saved the UK from the crash - even if the UK is still suffering. UK voters will lap it up and even if they don't there's always the other parts of the LibLabCon to follow the same policies.

^ :lol:


different combinations of these factors might result in a case to cut interest rates, raise them, or keep them the same.

It's Forward Guidance - but at least it's a sort of neutral Forward Guidance.

Well George seems to be doing a pretty good job of f---ing it all up regardless

...Carney is claiming today he has a responsibility to point out the risks of BREXIT to the voters.....that may be true ...but there are risks to remaining ..and he as the Head of the BofE should also point them out....does he not understand there are risks on both options.. ...something Cameron and Osborne need to learn also.....there must be an enquiry set up to investigate the unacceptable behaviour of this trio on the economic risk assessment / management at the centre of their campaign......at least the BREXIT campaigners have opted for controlled migration similar to Australia to manage the open door policy in place at present as the centre of their campaign.....seems logical ..... :rolleyes:

What I find interesting was that on BBC radio 2 yesterday morning there was a short headline saying exactly that, but then it miraculously disappeared from the main bulletin and has not been mentioned again.
