Responding to this morning’s joint press conference with Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Gisela Stuart, in which Johnson admitted that no deal preparations will continue, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit Secretary Tom Brake said:
“Seeing Johnson, Stuart and Gove back on stage together will give people flashbacks to the lies of the 2016 Vote Leave campaign. But, after three years of Brexit chaos, the difference is the promises peddled by Vote Leave have now been exposed as a fantasy.
“And today Boris Johnson has let the cat out of the bag. If he wins a majority, the UK will be headed for a disastrous no deal Brexit in 2020, damaging our economy, NHS and public services.
“The only way to stop Johnson is to vote Liberal Democrat and deny him a majority, so we can stop Brexit and build a brighter future for the country.”
