Economists prefer a Yes just as cats love Whiskas

Eight out of 10 cats prefer Whiskas. But nine out of 10 economists would prefer a Yes vote to the treaty.

A survey of 44 economists by Indecon International Economic Consultants found 84pc of them believe that even if funding could be secured from other sources, Ireland would be likely to face a higher cost of borrowing.

In all, 81pc of economists believed a Yes vote would not necessitate additional cuts in policy expenditure in the period to the end of 2013, and over 71pc believe it would not result in additional cuts post-2013.

Their view on preferences for Whiskas wasn't clear.
