CSJ/Legatum report is “blasé and simplistic”

Commenting on a report by the Centre for Social Justice and the Legatum Institute, which calls for a “short and simple” Brexit that could take Britain back onto WTO trading rules with the EU, Chuka Umunna MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“This blasé and simplistic report is nothing more than a blueprint for the hardest of hard Brexits.

“Instead of reducing uncertainty, it will have British businesses tearing their hair out at the prospect of punishing tariffs under the WTO option favoured by the hard Brexiteers.

“These negotiations are a lot more complicated and important than a handful of long time Eurosceptics chewing the fat at an Oxford College would have you believe.”
