The whole Brexit debate? That’s so five years ago, to speak with the UK’s chancellor of the exchequer, Rishi Sunak. He was answering a question in a BBC-radio interview a day after presenting his autumn budget. The main takeaway for many news outlets was the quite staggering hit that the UK economy is liable to take because of Brexit, according to the Office for Budget Responsibility, which is funded by his own Treasury. At four per cent of GDP, Brexit is expected to be twice as harmful as the corona pandemic. With the relationship between the UK and the EU taking a nosedive over disputes on everything from Northern Ireland to fishing, that could even be optimistic.
