Jacob Rees-Mogg has today launched the latest publication from no-deal Brexit advocates “Economists for Free Trade”.
Commenting, Chuka Umunna MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“Jacob Rees-Mogg is part of a Brexit elite that is completely out-of-touch with the lives of ordinary people.
“The latest Project Fantasy document from advocates of an ultra-hard Brexit promises to take us to a land of milk-and-honey, when the reality is that, before we have even left, Brexit is forcing up prices in the shops, destabilising our economy and stripping our health service of the doctors and nurses that it so badly needs.
“Whether it is Theresa May’s car crash Brexit, or Jacob Rees-Mogg’s disastrous no deal Brexit, one thing we know about Brexit is that it is an unholy mess and the gap between what we were promised and the best we can hope for is getting wider every day.
“More and more people have had enough of Jacob Rees-Mogg and the Westminster political games he and his colleagues are playing, which is why so many are demanding a People’s Vote on the Brexit deal.”
