The Chancellor must now surely consider his position in the government – McDonnell

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to Philip Hammond’s remarks in Davos that no deal would be a “betrayal”, said:

“The Chancellor must now surely consider his position in the government. Philip Hammond’s comments today demonstrate he has acknowledged the damage a no deal Brexit would do to our economy, jobs and living standards.

“If the Prime Minister fails to listen to his warnings and continues to refuse to take no deal off the table there is no other option, he must resign.”
