The Government has been unable to assess the vague, half-baked deal the PM is promising – McDonnell

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, commenting on the publication of Treasury analysis on the impact of Brexit, said:

“We’re in the ludicrous position of seeing an analysis produced today on the economic implications of Brexit which is in fact an assessment of the Chequers proposals abandoned months ago.

“The Government has been unable to assess the vague, half-baked deal the PM is promising, but what we do know is the latest proposals are worse than even the Chequers Deal.

“What the analysis produced by the Treasury today does show us is that the Tories plans will leave the country poorer.”
