Commenting on the Foreign Affairs Select Committee report, ‘Article 50 negotiations: Implications of no deal’, which highlights the dangers a Brexit with no deal would pose to our economy, Phil Wilson MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:
“This cross-party report, authored by Leavers and Remainers alike, sets out the dire consequences of leaving the European Union without any deal at all.
“This extreme form of Brexit would take our economy off a cliff edge. We would face punishing tariffs on our trade with Europe, costing jobs and increasing prices in the shops. We would be caught in confusion over regulation, which would damage business, and face the worrying prospect of a hard border in Ireland.
“This makes it all the more crucial that MPs should have a meaningful vote at the end of the Brexit process, so that the Government cannot unilaterally crash us out of the EU with no deal in place.”
