Not many Brexiters have been spouting off today, on the 3rd anniversary of leaving the EU, apart from Julia Hartley-Brewer.
It came as there is now a majority for Brexit in only three seats across the whole of the country. Three. In 629 out of the 632 constituencies across Britain.
Also 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.
Rishi Sunak had to say something and this is the statement Number 10 released overnight.
In the three years since leaving the EU, we’ve made huge strides in harnessing the freedoms unlocked by Brexit to tackle generational challenges. Whether leading Europe’s fastest vaccine rollout, striking trade deals with over 70 countries or taking back control of our borders, we’ve forged a path as an independent nation with confidence.
And in my first 100 days as prime minister, that momentum hasn’t slowed – we’re cutting red tape for businesses, levelling up through our freeports, and designing our own, fairer farming system to protect the British countryside.
This is just the beginning of our plans to deliver on our five priorities, including growing the economy so we can create better paid jobs, and I’m determined to ensure the benefits of Brexit continue to empower communities and businesses right across the country.
Julia tweeted ‘Happy third anniversary of Brexit Day, everybody! #OldSpiceIsBack‘
Her happiness was not shared by everyone…
This spot on?
