OECD tells the peasants of Britain to vote again on Brexit to save economy but do you remember its lies from 2016?

The OECD, aka a think tank run by and for the vested interests of the 1%, the global elite, has today urged Britain to hold a second referendum on Brexit and to vote the right way. Naturally the BBC and the rest of the liberal media is loving it and not bothering to point out one little inconvenient truth, that the OECD is a proven Brexit liar.

The OECD says today that a new referendum or a change of government leading to the UK staying within the EU would have a "significant" positive impact on growth. It also warned "no deal" would see investment seize up, the pound hit new lows and the UK's credit rating cut.

Hmmm. Now here is a quote from the BBC's sister paper the Guardian from before the referendum

Analysis by the OECD found that the UK economy would be just under 1.5 percentage points smaller in 2018 after Brexit than it would be if the country voted to stay in the EU on 23 June.

Ends

Within three months it was admitting that this forecast was completely wrong as UK economic growth surged ahead. Now if its big call of 2016 was proved to be complete and utter bollocks why would anyone take its latest outburst seriously? Unless of course you are diehard remoaners at the BBC in which case you just publish the latest dire warnings without mentioning the fact that the OECD's track record on this matter is more Mystic Meg than Nostradamus.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: 5 signs that a banking crisis is on the way

Some of you fell for my April Fool - wow! thanks for the messages of congratulation! In yesterday’s bearcast I argued that banks had to abandon paying dividends pro tem. Now under pressure they have agreed to do so. I now give you five little or big case studies showing why a banking crisis is inevitable. Then I look at Nostra Terra Oil & Gas (NTOG), Bluebird Merchant Ventures (BMV), where I am a very excited and supportive shareholder but think the chairman must be fired after today’s news, Bidstack (BIDS), Plutus Powergen (PPG) and the associated POS companies and Westminster Group (WSG) where repellent slug and ex Tory MP Tony Baldry of 3DM infamy shows again why he is the unacceptable face of capitalism.
