Umunna – “We should not leave the European Union until we know where we are going”

A copy of the EU’s position paper on legal arrangements on transition has been leaked.

Commenting, Chuka Umunna MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:

The EU’s leaked position paper underlines one thing: all the proposed transition does is push the cliff-edge out a little bit further. Transition increasingly looks less like building a bridge and more like being made to walk the plank.

We should not leave the European Union until we know where we are going. At the moment there is a transition to nowhere, and nothing to implement: because the end destination - our future relationship with the EU - is unknown as the Cabinet can’t agree on it.”
