I’m particularly concerned about the Government’s plans to move to a free trade relationship between the UK and EU if Britain left the bloc. This weaker relationship with the EU could lead to significant damage to the economy and a major loss of rights at work and dilution of environmental and consumer protection.
The damage this weaker relationship could do was set out in the Treasury’s own analysis. I think it is dreadful that a UK Government could come up with a plan which will harm the interests of British people in this way.
I am continuing to press for a second referendum, and I believe that Labour is right to call for this to be a choice between a very jobs-first Brexit deal and staying in the EU.
I would campaign to remain in the EU in a second referendum.
