PM’s scorched earth approach will hollow out UK trade

Responding to reports that Boris Johnson will attempt to secure a Canada style trading deal with the EU, Liberal Democrat Acting Leader Ed Davey said:

“Boris Johnson talks about bringing the country together and building a prosperous future. Neither of those things can be done by deliberately hollowing out our existing trade relationships with our most important economic partners. This is nothing short of a scorched earth policy.

"Johnson is only interested in bringing the Brexit vote together, not the country. He is more than happy to leave the 48% behind.

"The Liberal Democrats will hold this government to account. We will work with progressive and pro European parties to ensure people know there is another way.”
