Expert advice on Brexit is needed

Published 11/03/2016

The Governor of the Bank of England was heavily criticised by Brexiters after warning that leaving the EU is the "biggest domestic risk" Britain faces.

Giving evidence to MPs, Mark Carney said it could trigger prolonged financial instability.

As in the Scottish referendum, it is becoming increasingly difficult for ordinary voters to get expert information as even moderate comments are rejected as part of 'Project Fear'.

But we may recall Alex Salmond, a former "oil economist", rubbishing Sir Ian Wood's reservations about North Sea oil - reservations which, in the event, proved overly cautious.
