Facts4EU.Org summarises the sunny uplands of the statistics that matter

The last two days have seen a raft of positive national statistics released by the ONS. Given that our state broadcaster prefers to present doom and gloom, Facts4EU.Org felt readers might want to read something more upbeat, based on official facts.

Below we summarise the latest figures on jobs and the economy, just published. Whilst all in the garden may not be rosy, and storm clouds stay menacingly close on the near-horizon, there are plenty of rays of sunshine in the data released.

4. GDP has grown significantly in the two years since Brexit

And finally, as we reported last week, the experts were confounded when the UK’s GDP rose in November when almost all of them expected it to fall.

It can’t be easy being a Rejoiner these days. They desperately need bad news but the good news for Brexit Britain just keeps on coming.

Our report above shows clearly that by all the key measures, Brexit Britain is on the up. Not nearly as much as it could be if the Government pulled its finger out, true, but on the up nevertheless.

Brexit Facts4EU.Org continues to campaign for a low-tax, high growth, sensibly-regulated post Brexit environment. It’s essential that the 4,000 EU laws imposed on the UK over the years be either ditched completely or amended this year. It’s equally essential that government publicity departments start doing their job. Why should we have to pump out the good news all the time?

Similarly, the BBC needs to wake up and start representing what most people in the country think – not just those in London. We do not expect them to act as a propaganda machine but we do expect them to present a more balanced view for their viewers and readers.

With more support from our readers, Facts4EU.Org will continue to churn out reports such as the one above and we will continue to work with other pro-Brexit organisations to get this information out there. However, we can only do this with your financial help.

We must get reports like this out there

Reports like the one above take far longer to research, write and produce than many people realise. If they were easy, readers would see other organisations also producing these daily.

However, there’s little point in the Facts4EU.Org team working long hours, seven days-a-week, if we lack the resources to promote them effectively – to the public, to MPs, and to the media. This is where you come in, dear reader.

Facts4EU.Org needs you today

We are a 'not for profit' team (we make a loss) and any payment goes towards the actual work, not plush London offices, lunch or taxi expenses, or other luxuries of some organisations.

We badly need more of our thousands of readers to become members, to support this work. Could this be you, today? It's quick and easy, we give you a choice of two highly secure payment providers, and we do NOT ask you for further support if you pay once. We just hope you keep supporting us. Your membership stays anonymous unless you tell us otherwise.

Please don't assume that other people will keep us going - we don't receive enough to survive and we need your help today. Could you help us? We rely 100% on public contributions from readers like you.

If you believe in a fully-free, independent, and sovereign United Kingdom, please join now by clicking on one of the links below or you can use our Support page here. You will receive a personal, friendly ‘thank you’ from a member of our team within 24 hours. Thank you.
