There have been a lot of gloomy forecasts flying around recently with regard to the potential Brexit fallout
. Some of the most alarming predictions came from the Bank of England which foresees, in the worst case, a fall in GDP of 8 percent and a rise in unemployment to 7.5 percent (from its current level of 4.1 percent). For many 'Leave' voters though, the doom and gloom surrounding Brexit has left them undeterred.
According to a recent YouGov survey
, only 46 percent said they think such a drop in GDP would be 'a bad thing' - compared to 71 percent of 'Remain' voters. A spike in unemployment is seemingly more of a worry, but still only 69 percent see this as bad - compared to 91 percent of Remainers. These differences are consistent throughout the other scenarios, with a 25 percent fall for the pound and a 6.5 percent inflation rise also doing little to unsettle the calm Leave waters.
