The Treasury have exposed the Lib Dems for lying about 3m jobs being lost if we leave the EU.
During the EU election campaign and the televised debates between Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage the Lib Dems repeated the lie that the latest Treasury analysis said that 3m jobs would be put at risk if we left the EU. The Treasury has now belatedly said that the analysis says no such thing and uses a 10 year old methodology.
UKIP's Deputy Leader, Paul Nuttall MEP, said:
There is no doubt that UK would continue to export to the EU after withdrawal from it and the alleged 3 million jobs loss bandied around by Europhiles such as the Lib Dems is nothing more than inaccurate scaremongering.
We live in a global market, and no one believes that if we left the EU companies like Renault would stop selling their cars here and sack the dealership staff, yet that is what Clegg's figures assume. Likewise, France's population aren't going to stop buying our goods and services.
