Back in 2016, Lord Digby Jones, a vocal proponent of Brexit, inanely asserted that “There’s not going to be any economic pain. If there are job losses, they will be very few”.
As late as January 2019 he was still maintaining “not a single job” would be lost because of Brexit.
In a darkly humorous move, Yorkshire Bylines have come up with the Digby Jones Jobs Lost Index.
It’s a list that keeps on growing.
