Theresa May’s former chief of staff, Nick Timothy, has claimed today that the Prime Minister and her ministers “struggle to see any economic upside to Brexit” and see it as a “damage limitation exercise”.
Responding, Stephen Doughty MP, a leading supporter of People’s Vote, said:
“It is a damning indictment of the Prime Minister when her former closest advisor admits that she and her Ministers struggle to see any economic upside to Brexit and instead view it as a 'damage limitation exercise' - it shows that Theresa May knows Brexit will leave us all worse off.
“No-one voted to make themselves poorer, and it's clear that the Brexit being delivered is very different to the one that was promised.
“This new revelation is one more reason why this must go back to the people for a final say, and why huge numbers will be marching through London on March 23 demanding a People's Vote.”
