Grove-White – Davis is taking Britain stumbling over a cliff edge

Commenting on David Davis’ speech earlier today, Francis Grove-White, Deputy Director of Open Britain, said:

“If David Davis carries on like this, he and his Cabinet colleagues are going to take Britain stumbling off a hard Brexit cliff edge.

“We’ve already seen prices rise and Government borrowing increase as a result of Brexit. And leaving the Single Market and the Customs Union, as the Government has decided to do, will result in less trade with our largest export market, hitting those on low incomes hardest. 

“Nobody voted in the referendum last year to become poorer. The British public have the right to keep an open mind as new facts emerge and the Brexit squeeze continues to make families worse off.”
