The BBC is pushing a negative Brexit study published by a group funded by the European Union and advised by top eurocrats.
In an article titled ‘Fears grow across the Atlantic over Brexit fallout’, BBC News economics editor Kamal Ahmed stresses the concerns of “influential U.S. think tank” the RAND Corporation, which claim a ‘No Deal’ outcome in the Brexit negotiations would be damaging to Britain, with the negative impact on the EU being “relatively minor” — with no effort to critique their findings or quote an alternative view.
Examination of RAND’s annual report for 2016 reveals another potentially key piece of information which the publicly-funded broadcaster neglects to mention: the European Union is a significant source of its income.

The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety, Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers, Directorate-General for Migration and Home Affairs, Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, and Research Executive Agency are all named on a list of “clients and grantors”.
So are the European Parliament and the European Defence Agency — a body which will become increasingly influential as the bloc’s leaders advance their plans for military integration.
Here you have it. A European army is born. https://t.co/c5alPZiKnp
