More than 300 prominent historians, including Simon Schama and Niall Ferguson, are warning voters that if they choose to leave the European Union on 23 June they will condemn Britain to irrelevance“ On 23 June, we face a choice: to cast ourselves adrift, condemning ourselves to irrelevance and Europe to division and weakness; or to reaffirm our commitment to the EU and stiffen the cohesion of our continent in a dangerous world.”
.................But what do they know eh?

Lessons of History - one of the first things you learn when you study History at university level is that you cannot forecast the future on the basis of your knowledge of the past. Historians may be experts in what happened in the past, but they know no more than anyone else about decisions to be made in the present or what wil happen in the future.

And there you have it, 300 professors say we should stay in. What I say is those that can do, those that can't teach... and Clifford is 100% correct history does not predict the future, if it did look at recent history - don't trust politicians and vote with your heart not based on BS facts.

Positive of being in is "more of the same". Sad but true and the saddest thing is I might vote for it as the alternative is "the unknown". Yes this country is crap but it can always get crapper.

All the most prosperous nations on the earth are not in the EU but they also trade with it freely without being in a bonkers political union. It is the biggest lie that remainers push around.
More of the same means we are destroying our children's future. They deserve to be able to have a decent job where they can save for a house, have a fully national health service and not have to pay thousands of pounds for education. Vote leave and things will get better.

We there's your problem, trusting that the IFS can predict the future.
"The UK *could* face an extra two years of austerity measures if it votes to leave the EU, the Institute for Fiscal Studies has said."
Yes 100% correct, they *could* also face 40 boom years.
If the headline was "will" or even "is likely to" it would be of concern, but it isn't...
