Streeting – No deal Brexit would be very worst possible outcome

RTÉ News is reporting that a detailed 15-page internal document has been drawn up by the EU warning member states, companies and stakeholders to step up preparation for a no-deal Brexit scenario.

Commenting, Wes Streeting MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“A no deal Brexit would be an economic, social and security catastrophe for the United Kingdom and would be the very worst possible outcome from the chaotic Brexit process. It would have a disastrous impact on the life of nearly every single person in the UK.

“Theresa May’s fundamental problem is that she has lost control of her own party over Brexit and has no majority in Parliament for her own botched proposals, which have managed to satisfy nobody. And that’s even before she inevitably compromises further in the coming negotiations.

“That means the Brextremists have an interest in voting down everything in the hope of securing a no deal Brexit.

“Her only way out is to take the decision to the British public and back a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.”
