Reckless Johnson risking sending the UK straight off the no-deal cliff
Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats
Boris Johnson plans to remove the safety net in the Withdrawal Agreement by making it illegal for Parliament to extend the transition period beyond December 2020.
This pushes the UK closer to a no-deal Brexit that will wreck our economy, our NHS, our efforts to combat climate change, workers' rights, and much more.
Liberal Democrat interim Leader Ed Davey said:
"This Tory Government's reckless approach to Brexit will send the country straight off the no-deal cliff.
"The only way Johnson can meet the December 2020 timetable is by giving up all his previous promises to Leave voters and agreeing to all the demands of the EU."
"Liberal Democrats will continue to stand up for Remainers up and down the country and oppose Brexit. People deserve better than a future where a Prime Minister willingly threatens jobs, the environment and the NHS."
