Yeah! And now the profiteers step in raising rates and prices for no other reason than they can use this as an excuse that it's 'necessary'. I've heard a lot of moaning this lunchtime that everything will go up. Rates, taxes, V.A.T. except benefits which will go down.
It probably will but there's no immediate reason to do it, and I've not heard any reason why Osborne claimed there'd be a 30 billion black hole in public spending when we'll save 18 billion that we initially send to the EU.
