Responding to the release of the ‘no-deal Brexit’ papers Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake said:
“The Government have parted company with reality: they are seriously proposing that in the event of a no-deal Brexit, they will at that point start running around, trying to replicate all the deals they would have just walked away from. They are completely silent on how they would deliver this from such a weak position, what businesses are meant to do before bilateral deals are signed and the scale of the damage such an approach would inflict.
“Since triggering Article 50 without a plan, Theresa May has made a mess out of Brexit. The attempts at every stage to placate the right-wing Conservative Brexiters, by putting their interests ahead of the country’s is a national disgrace.
“It is time for the public to be given the final say with a People’s Vote on what happens next, with the right to exit from Brexit.”
