An Italian financial journalist has delivered a devastating verdict on the European Union – saying Britain is far better off out and hoping Brexit will help destroy the ‘anti-democratic project”.
Paulo Barnard was presenting his regular slot on economic talk show La Gabbia days before Britain voted to leave the EU, when he exposed some of the most common held myths about Brexit.
Asked if he thought Brexit would create a domino effect in Europe, Barnard replies: “I hope. I hope it will destroy this rubbish.”
He continued: “If a Brit overlook’s Dover’s cliffs, what does he see?
“He sees a Europe that from 2007 to today has lost its GDP to the point of not getting it back.
“He sees an unemployment rate that’s double that of the UK. He sees banking gaps for €1.7 trillion in Europe, that nobody is covering.
“He turns around to the other side and sees an America that from 2007 to today has regained all of their GDP and added 10% to the national wealth.”
