Smith – more and more of our money being spent on No Deal no one voted for

The Government have significantly increased the sum of money allocated to efforts to repair some of the damage No Deal will inevitably cause.

Commenting, Owen Smith MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“More and more of our money is now to be spent on something nobody voted for, that would make us all poorer, would damage the fight against terrorism and would threaten peace and stability in Northern Ireland.

“It is an absolute outrage that, without any democratic consent whatsoever, Boris Johnson thinks he can set our country on such a dangerous and reckless course, at enormous expense to the public.

“The only fair and democratic way forward is to give the people the Final Say. Now that what is being proposed is a million miles away from anything Boris Johnson and his Cabinet colleagues sold to the public in 2016 it is absolutely essential we have a People’s Vote on whatever comes out of the Brexit crisis.”
