Brexiteers and Remainers are both guilty of cherry-picking facts to win an argument.
Despite the vast majority of studies suggesting Brexit will reduce the UK’s economic growth, Leave cheerleader Jacob Rees-Mogg has found a new reason to be optimistic.
In a surprise move, Norway’s giant state investment fund has decided to increase its investment in the UK.
And Rees-Mogg has taken that decision as a ringing endorsement of Brexit.
However, some pro-European users have taken this as opportunity to point out a recent widely-reported story about Rees-Mogg's own investment firm “moving” to Ireland ahead of the UK's exit from the European Union.
Last year, it was revealed Somerset Capital Management, an investment firm he co-founded, was setting up a fund in Ireland with the firm’s guidance listing Brexit as a potential risk, as it could cause “considerable uncertainty”.
So why have you moved your investment fund to Ireland? https://t.co/dIRHVxbmci
