    The actual report also stated "in a worst-case scenario," FWIW.

    But it's not fair to blame you for missing that. The headline and the wording of the report was intended to make you think it's a locked-on certainty.

    Brexit is likely to be quite expensive but we keep getting reports that stress only the worst-case scenario, so no one except those who want to believes them.

    Wonder what will happen!

    That’s called the Withdrawal Agreement. The ERG have already voted against that, remember?

    Are we going to see another delay ?

    or is the EU going to cave ?

    Or maybe none of the above.
