Commenting on Ruth Davidson’s speech on Brexit this evening, Dominic Grieve MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:
“Ruth Davidson’s comments hit the nail on the head, and the Government’s approach to Brexit should be guided by the spirit of moderation and inclusivity of which she has spoken.
“In leaving the EU, the Government must seek to accommodate the views of the 48 per cent, not just the 52 per cent, and focus on bringing our country together after the divisive experience of the referendum.
“That means the Government must strive to protect our economic wellbeing by keeping Britain in the Single Market, as well as seeking to address voters’ concerns about immigration.”
