Government should stop pretending No Deal doesn’t mean No Deal – Ed Miliband

Ed Miliband MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on Business Secretary Alok Sharma calling the difference between an Australian-style deal and No Deal “semantics,” said:

“A ‘No Deal’ might just be semantics for Alok Sharma, but it’s not semantics for the manufacturers, farmers and many businesses across the country who have been clear that it could have serious economic consequences for them.

“The government is trying to pull the wool over people’s eyes to pretend No Deal doesn’t mean No Deal. The Business Secretary should be listening to businesses and pulling out all the stops to deliver the deal Ministers promised was oven ready, not dismissing their concerns.”
