Govt continues to ignore bad deal economic warning

July 29, 2020 7:42 AM

Responding to an LSE report released today (29/7) stating that Brexit will harm the industries unscathed by COVID-19, Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:

"As Britain's economy enters the deepest recession for 300 years due to Covid, the Conservatives could have justifiably chosen to delay Brexit to prevent even more job losses and a double whammy for our economy.

Just last week people in Wiltshire heard that local employer, Dyson was making 900 redundnacies, coupled with Honda in Swindon, the double whammy of Brexit and Coronavirus are starting to have a real impact said Ellen Nicholson, SW WIltshire's Lib Dem spokesperson.

"But Boris Johnson is recklessly choosing to ignore the economic warnings, putting his own short term political interests before the people of Britain.

"The Liberal Democrats were the first to demand an extension of the Brexit transition period due to coronavirus. We will continue to fight for the closest trading relationship with the EU to protect as many jobs as possible.

"Boris Johnson pledges jobs, jobs, jobs but is delivering P45, P45, P45."
