Responding to the launch of the Conservative manifesto, Liberal Democrat Shadow Chancellor Ed Davey said:
“The Tory manifesto is built on a lie: that Brexit can be implemented without causing years of chaos and damage to our economy.
“These promises are not worth the paper they are written on. Boris Johnson’s Farage-endorsed Brexit deal would leave the UK £70 billon worse off, meaning less money to invest in our schools, hospitals and tackling the climate emergency.
“The best way to build a brighter future is to stop Brexit, so we can invest the £50 billion Remain bonus in our public services and tackling inequality.”
