The IN campaign would like you to believe that the majority of businesses want to stay in the EU.
However, the reality is that business is split on the issue. Indeed, a survey by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) shows that business are rejecting the remain camp’s main tactic of talking down Britain and its dynamic economy. Despite claims by the pro-EU camp to the contrary, business is not fearful of the referendum or the result.
The survey shows that a majority of those businesses which represent the vast bulk of our economy – those who do business in the UK and those that export outside of the EU- want to leave the European Union.’ Over 50% of BCC members consider that leaving the EU would have a positive impact on their overall growth strategy, whilst 36% said leaving the EU would have no impact at all.
The BCC survey also contradicts the Chancellor’s campaign in which he claims that ‘the threat of leaving the EU is weighing on our economy, investments and building are being delayed’. The survey instead states that the referendum is having no effect on the real economy or giving rise to uncertainty.
Business is not fearful of the referendum or the result. UK plc will prosper after we take back control of our economy and Vote Leave on 23 June.
