I used the unemployment rate as an example and yes I was not clear and it reads that I made the claim all by myself but.Why would you look for a Pew article when they state in the article that they use Eurostat and these are readily available and up to date? Unless you don't trust Eurostat but you do trust someone who just regurgitates their numbers? Anyone might suspect it was purposeful...
In that Forbes article they also mention that one of the many reason for brexit was the perception of a dysfunctional economic entity at the EU. It even mentions the unemployment disparity.
Brexit vote happened in June of 2016? If you look from around 2012 to 2016 there was more than one that had unemployment above 20%
Yes the current 2019 numbers are looking much better. But that data was not available back in 2016.
It really does seem that you want just accuse someone of something that fits your own predetermined idea.
Hey if you don't want anyone to have a discussion in your echo chamber then just tell me to go away.
