£15Bn BREXIT BOOST: Economic forecasts for UK economy to be REVERSED

PROJECT FEAR was in tatters yesterday as the OBR admitted that downgraded growth forecasts for the UK Economy are set to be REVERSED.

The Office for Budget Responsibility said in November that the UK Governments deficit would rise in April.

However, experts are now admitting that those predictions were false and revealed that the UK had much stronger than expected tax receipts following of Britain’s decision to leave the European Union and revealed that the new data would deliver HM Treasury a £15bn windfall.

The OBR admitted that the UK’s government’s borrowing “will undershoot our November forecast by a significant margin”.

The OBR has also been accused of false predictions on productivity after the latest two-quarters of high productivity growth are the strongest since 2008,

Martin Beck of the EY ITEM Club said: “so they might have to backtrack on that as well.”

Productivity rose 0.9% in the first three months to September as British workers produced more output per hour than ever before.

The jump in productivity was the fastest for any quarter since 2011.
