Excellent interview with Bernard Connolly with Merryn Somerset Webb of Moneyweek magazine. Who's he? Oxford educated economist, lost his job at the European Commission fin 1995 for writing his book, 'The Rotten Heart of Europe: The Dirty War for Europe's Money'. The Times’s Anatole Kaletsky called the book “the most intellectually persuasive, economically coherent and politically prescient account yet published of the development of European institutions in the 1990s”. Marc Carney, Governor of Bank of England, named Connelly as only one of 4 economists who predicted and correctly analysed the 2008 banking crisis. In 2001, Connolly received the Frode Jakobsen prize, awarded in Denmark for “outstanding moral courage in public affairs”. The written version of the interview can be read here,

Evergreen - political elite liars!
They told us the referendum was a once in a lifetime decision. They said they would respect the result. They said we would leave the EU today - including the customs union and single market.
They lied. We will never forgive them.pic.twitter.com/1qnMXvEfWb
