Leaked Government Brexit Analysis Says The UK Will Be Worse Off In Every Scenario

The government's new analysis of the impact of Brexit says the UK would be worse off outside the European Union under every scenario modelled, BuzzFeed News can reveal.

The assessment, which is titled “EU Exit Analysis – Cross Whitehall Briefing” and dated January 2018, looked at three of the most plausible Brexit scenarios based on existing EU arrangements.

...

The assessment seen by BuzzFeed News is being kept tightly guarded inside government. It was prepared by officials across Whitehall for the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) and is reportedly being presented to key ministers in one-to-one meetings this week ahead of discussion at the Brexit cabinet subcommittee next week.

Asked why the prime minister was not making the analysis public, a DExEU source told BuzzFeed News: "Because it's embarrassing."

2. Brexit is disastrous. In other news, water is wet and General Francisco Franco is still dead.

3. Did somebody say "embarrassing"?

No, this isn't from The Onion:

Tory minister defends 'cover-up' of damning leaked Brexit report by saying government forecasts are ALWAYS WRONG

A Tory minister has prompted bafflement by saying every single forecast his own government has ever made of anything is wrong.

Steve Baker made the jaw-dropping announcement to deflect accusations he'd overseen a "stinking cover-up" of damning analysis of Brexit.

...

Furious MPs hauled Brexit minister Mr Baker to the House of Commons for an urgent debate today where he claimed he'd only seen the report this morning - 12 hours after it was published.

...

And he read a quote to MPs that declared: "The only purpose of economic forecasting was to make astrology look respectable."
