Murray – Lord Ashcroft is selling our country down the river

Leading Brexiter Lord Ashcroft today wrote an article encouraging British companies who want an EU outpost post-Brexit to consider Malta. He specifically highlights Malta’s “advantageous tax system” as an incentive.

Commenting, Ian Murray MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“Lord Ashcroft is selling our country down the river. He backs a Brexit that will devastate jobs and the economy at home while at the same time trying to flog the benefits of low-tax Malta to companies fleeing the mess he and his chums have made.

“It’s no wonder Theresa May is unable to negotiate effectively when she is still negotiating with the Brexit extremists in her own party and those who want to profit from it. The only way out of this mess is a People’s Vote on any final Brexit deal.”
