Remainer David Cameron ADMITS: I Was Wrong About Brexit
Former British PM David Cameron has admitted that Brexit “has turned out less badly than we first predicted.”
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, he said that Brexit has been a “mistake, but not a disaster”.
Mr Cameron, as Conservative party leader and PM called the referendum in 2016, a move which has largely been attributed to his fear of an electoral threat from UKIP.
“It’s turned out less badly than we first thought. But it’s still going to be difficult”, he added.
During the EU referendum campaign, Mr Cameron was perhaps among the worst of all project fear leaders, citing the possibility of World War 3 and a total economic collapse as his reasoning for backing remain.
Speaking during this campaign, he said: “Let’s just remember what a shock really means. It means pressure on the pound sterling. It means jobs being lost. It means mortgage rates might rise. It means businesses closing. It means hardworking people losing their livelihoods.”
He warned that the “crisis” following Brexit would be like a “bomb” to the British economy but that “We can avoid all of this by voting Remain next week.”
Warning of a ‘punishment budget’ (which never happened), he also said: “nobody wants to have an emergency Budget, nobody wants to have cuts in public services, nobody wants to have tax increases”
