I've read your report.

It's utterly bogus. The lion's share (£176bn) of your £380bn comes from, according to your own report - instantly slashing "Working Time Directive, Climate Change and Renewable Package" etc - with £132bn coming from instant FTAs.

- the report's a joke.
If anyone else wants to read the hot, delusional fantasy mess that is this report, here it is:…

The authors are also claiming that their polling data show Brits don't want an extension, whereas their own data show more Brits than not think it beneficial:
Further, the report sings up the benefit of trading on WTO rules (25 mentions in doc) - without a single mention that the WTO is utterly broken, in financial trouble, chief just resigned, US pulling out & with no capacity left to enforce said rules.

Here's the table showing the supposed savings from ditching extension.

Where did they get that "better regulation" amount from? No peer-reviewed study, just a Briefings for Brexit blog post by "Harry West" (I presume they mean Harry Western - no record of qualifications)

So it’s all designed *not* to be genuine factual, referenced info.

Rather, it’s designed to be unchecked easy disinformation for tabloid press to regurgitate... for social media to circulate.
