John Redwood, who once stood to become leader of Conservative party, says some (unintentionally) amusing stuff on Twitter.
He is one of the last people to cling on to the success of Brexit.
It comes as Guy Hands, a leading City figure, has called Brexit a “complete disaster” and a “bunch of total lies” that has harmed large parts of the economy.
Speaking on the third anniversary of the UK’s departure from the EU, Hands, the founder, chair and chief investment officer of the private equity firm Terra Firma, said: “It’s been a complete disaster. The reality is it’s been a lose-lose situation for us and Europe. Europe has lost more [in financial services] but we’ve lost as well. And the reality of Brexit was, it was just was a bunch of complete and total lies.
“The only way that the Brexit put forward by Boris Johnson was going to work was if there was a complete deregulation of the UK and we moved to a sort of Liz Truss utopia of a Singapore state and that was just never going to happen,” Hands, a former donor to the Conservative party, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
Ignoring this John Redwood tweeted: “It is great we are now free to make our own laws and spend our own money thanks to Brexit. We now need to use those freedoms to make life better.”
One assumes he hasn’t seen this article…
Problem is John we don’t have much money left, as these reactions reflect.
This would be a good law?
