A Tory Brexit would put the priorities of bankers, tax dodgers, and a wealthy few first – John McDonnell

John
McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor,
commenting on the Dutch Prime Minister’s warning
that his country would block an EU-UK trade deal without tax avoidance measures
being included, said: 

“After
six wasted years of the Tories opposing every Labour proposal to clamp down on
tax avoidance, this reveals what our European neighbours believe is the main
priority for Theresa May’s government. It also gives an insight into what a
Tory Brexit would truly look like – a tax haven off the coast of Europe.

"The choice couldn’t be clearer, a Tory Brexit would put the
priorities of bankers, tax dodgers, and a wealthy few first. Whereas, a
Labour Brexit would put the economy, jobs and the livings standards of everyone
above all else."
