    Quote Message: Moody's have given a litany of bad predictions, today another "a decision to leave the EU would be credit negative for the UK economy." That is the same Moody's which failed to predict the biggest banking crisis of modern times. Moody's claim that economic cost of Brexit would outweigh the benefits looks to be as inaccurate as we have come to expect from them from David Davis MP Conservative, Haltemprice and Howden
