Firstly, Lord Lamont was quick off the blocks to point out the report's most obvious shortcoming:
They say economists put a decimal point in their forecasts to show that they have a sense of humour. The Chancellor has endorsed a forecast which looks 14 years ahead and predicts a fall in GDP of less than 0.5 per cent a year – well within the margin of error. Few forecasts are right for 14 months, let alone 14 years. Such precision is spurious, and entirely unbelievable.A little later in the day it emerged that Osborne's remainian argument only worked if it was assumed, as the Treasury had, that the UK opened itself to millions and millions more immigrants by 2030. This alone exposed Cameron as a duplicitous liar whom the British people can no longer believe. Of course national GDP increases with immigration - but the point is that per capita GDP doesn't. Ordinary people are no better off financially, and considerably worse off as they are crowded out of housing, schools, health, employment and advancement by the immigrants. The remainians are truly wholly in the pocket of the global corporates and the anti-democratic demagogues of Brussels.
Cameron's lies over immigration alone will destroy the illicit benefit he has drawn from the theft of £9m in taxes to fund his shabby little leaflet. And the British people have now been told authoritatively one thing - that Cameron and his crooked, corrupt chums cannot and will not halt mass unwanted immigration. Only an OUT vote will achieve that.
