Boris Johnson today suggested that it will be “touch and go” as to whether the UK crashes out of the EU with No Deal.
Commenting, Alex Sobel MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“Recently, Boris Johnson was claiming that the chance of crashing out of the EU in a disastrous No Deal was ‘a million to one’ but just a few weeks later it’s ‘touch and go.’ His willingness to gaslight the British public seems to have no limits.
“The catastrophe of No Deal is the opposite of what Boris Johnson and other leave campaigners promised in 2016. Yet now they are trying to impose this disaster on the country against the wishes of the majority of the public and of Parliament. It is an affront to our democracy.
“With the chances of a disastrous No Deal increasing by the day, with all the damage to jobs, livelihoods, the economy and our NHS this would entail, the public must be given the final say. A People’s Vote is the only way to bring a stable and lasting conclusion to the Brexit crisis.”
