I CONTINUE to be concerned about the lack of informed support for Brexit.

All four living former UK prime ministers think that Brexit is a bad idea as do most economists, medics, academics and businessmen. The only foreign leaders who approve of Brexit are Presidents Trump and Putin — both of whom, for their different nationalistic interests, have professed an interest in wanting to see the EU break up.

I am also concerned about the consequences of a no-deal Brexit, an outcome favoured by the right-wing of the Tory party. Freed of EU laws which protect workers’ and consumers’ rights and the environment, a right-wing Tory government will feel free to pursue its deal of low tax, low regulation and low welfare economy. This is something that may boost corporate profits and hence appeal to the sector of the community that owns stocks and shares, but it will be to the detriment of ordinary working people.

We clearly need a new public vote to say whether we want the form of Brexit finally decided by government or whether we should abandon the whole idea.
