@kazetnagorra saidAs you say, the Treasury (likely intentionally) overestimated the immediate impact of the vote. (Which some in this thread have denied).
Clearly this Treasury analysis overestimated the immediate impact of the vote (likely intentionally so), although the vote did definitely cause some loss of jobs and economic contraction. One would have been wiser to consider the advice of independent experts instead.
Yes, it would have been wise to also consider the advice of independent experts, but it is quite clear that the voting public would have been influenced by the Treasury's deliberate overestimates you have correctly conceded.
