Daily Express: Comment – Patrick Minford

LIKE a healthy person besieged by doctors saying “you look wan and peaky, come to my surgery”, the economy continues to do just fine.

Jobs go on being created and productivity per hour is now rising at nearly four per cent a year.

Unemployment is at an all-time low. The public finances are improving fast and public debt has been falling as a percentage of GDP for two years – because growth is steady.

What Remainers have missed is how the Brexit devaluation of 15 per cent has made exports surge while sensibly restraining our consumer spending.

Exports are growing fast to all parts of the world and foreign investment continues to grow strongly.

We now need Mrs May to take a firm line with Brussels so we can move ahead with a proper Brexit – free global trade deals and our own commonsense regulations.
