@chimeralockyer @tfoale @updayUK Other tricks:
1. Talk about %ge growth instead of £ or € growth. "Ooh Nauru has 16 times the growth of Germany! Europe is finished!"

16% of Nauru's $110M economy comes to $17m. Whereas 1% of Germany's $3.8Tn economy comes to $38Bn!
@chimeralockyer @tfoale @updayUK 3. Talk about GDP growth instead of how growth in the amount of imports purchased each year.
@chimeralockyer @tfoale @updayUK 4. Talk about "90% of UK businesses don't trade with EU"... but what percentage of UK jobs and UK GDP do that 90% represent? Not much actually.
@chimeralockyer @tfoale @updayUK 5. Ignore the effect of distance on trade. China is a big market, but because it is so far away it would need to import 6 times more that'll 27 EU countries to generate the same volume of UK exports
@chimeralockyer @tfoale @updayUK 6. Present a false dichotomy: we have to destroy our trade with the EU to improve trade elsewhere. WTF? I have to chop off my right foot to improve the left? I can't wear trousers because I am putting a hat on. WTAF?!? Fix my roof by mowing the lawn ?!?!
