Commenting on the release of official figures stating that the three month growth rate since the EU Referendum has been plus 0.5% rather than the Governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney's pre-Referendum estimate of 0.2%, Christopher Mills, the UKIP Business Spokesman said,
"The bad news for those who expected an economic apocalypse when we voted to regain our independence and freedom has suffered another blow. The prophets of doom are now looking like a tired old heavyweight, demanding just one more round in the ring before retirement, appalling the public, embarrassing their friends and destroying their reputations. The UK is the one of the world’s most competitive economies; it is open for business and has the tools and the desire amongst its men and women to go from strength to strength in the future".
UKIP’s Economy Spokesman Mark Reckless AM added, “I welcome today’s growth figures following our vote for Brexit and I look forward to the day when 'experts' realise this is not despite Brexit but because of Brexit.”
