Mr Mark Carney, the highly respected governor of the Bank of England, has been dubbed the high priest of ‘project hysteria’ after he gave his analysis of what would happen next year if the UK did not manage to get a deal with the EU on it’s terms to leave the 27-member-states bloc.
At the moment, a deal presented by the UK PM Ms Theresa May and agreed with the EU is on the table but it is highly unpopular. The British Parliament will have to vote on that deal on 11 December. If the deal fails to pass the Parliament vote (and all signs point to that at the moment), there may not be time left for the UK to renegotiate a leaving deal with the EU.

Mr Carney painted a very bleak picture of what would happen to the UK economy if they left the EU without a deal, stating that in case of an unlikely “disorderly no-deal” Brexit, the economy would contract by 8%, house prices would tumble by 30% and interest rates would rise to combat inflation.
He also estimated that the pound would drop in value to such an extent that it would be worth less than the US dollar.
The summary of Mr Carney’s analysis would be that a no-deal Brexit ‘would be the worst crash since the 1930s.’
Whereas back in 2015, the scare-mongering by the government to warn people not to vote for Brexit was known as ‘project fear’, today, the Brexit leaning newspapers have responded by copying leading Brexiteer Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg’s quote, who said that Mr Carney’s analysis was part of ‘project hysteria.’

The Telegraph for example labelled Carney’s announcement nothing short of a “doomsday analysis”, and says: “Mark Carney has been accused of undermining the Bank of England’s ‘independence and credibility’ after publishing an analysis of the economic impacts of no deal so bleak it has been dubbed ‘project hysteria’.”
The Daily Express also quoted Brexiteer Mr Rees-Mogg with it’s headline: “Bank boss Carney’s ‘Project Hysteria’” and showed its leanings by leading not with the straight news of Carney’s comments but with the fact he “faced a furious backlash”.
“MPs tore into the governor’s latest bleak prognosis, accusing him of meddling in politics by attempting to stoke up Project Fear once again,” said the newspaper
The UK government will start discussing the Brexit deal of Ms May as from next Tuesday.
