Boris Johnson's Brexit plans will cost UK economy up to £20bn a year, report warns

Boris Johnson's Brexit plans will cost UK economy up to £20bn a year, report warns | Press coverage | Scoop.it
“Getting Brexit done” on the terms of Boris Johnson’s general election manifesto will inflict a hit of up to £20 billion a year on government finances, rising as high as £28 billion if the UK crashes out of the EU without a trade deal agreement at the end of 2020, a new report has warned.
ukandeu's insight:

"In its analysis of the main parties’ manifestos for the 12 December election, UKCE found Brexit policies to be “vague and potentially unrealistic”, with a “glaring” failure by both Tories and Labour to set out how they intend to deal with the “significant” impact which EU withdrawal will have on the UK economy over the years to come."

Exit polls show Johnson's Conservative Party with a clear majority of parliamentary seats

Exit polls show Johnson's Conservative Party with a clear majority of parliamentary seats | Press coverage | Scoop.it
LONDON - Prime Minister Boris Johnson appears to have won a sweeping, decisive and powerful majority of parliamentary seats - and a mandate to deliver Brexit - in Thursday's election, according to the respected national exit poll and partial vote results.
The Conservative Party was forecast to win 368 spots in a 650-seat Parliament, according to the exit poll, giving Johnson and his Tory lawmakers firm control of the House of Commons.
Ballots tallied through the night affirmed that Johnson and his Conservative Party had achieved a smashing success, the largest win for the Tories since the days of Margaret Thatcher - while the opposition Labour Party and its hard-left leader, Jeremy Corbyn, suffered their worst defeat in four decades.
After being re-elected to his Uxbridge seat, Johnson said Conservatives had been "given a powerful new mandate to get Brexit done, and not just to get Brexit done, but to unite this country."
Corbyn, after winning in his own Islington constituency, announced he would not lead his party in any future general-election campaign but he intended to stay on as leader during a period of reflection.
"This is obviously a very disappointing night for the Labour Party," he said.
He defended the popularity's of the party's platform, which sought to "right the wrongs and the injustices and inequalities that exist in this country." And he attributed the party's losses to the notion that "Brexit has so polarized and divided debate within this country, it has overridden so much of a normal political debate."
Johnson - the bombastic showman who led the campaign to leave the European Union in the June 2016 referendum - is now positioned to be the prime minister to see Britain set sail from Europe next month.
And dreams of a second referendum
