John McDonnell responds to pound falling

John McDonnell MP, Shadow Chancellor, commenting on the pound falling after Tory leadership contenders Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt said they were opposed to the backstop, said:

“The instability and uncertainty caused by the Conservative Party leadership contest have real-world consequences. The commitment of both contenders to a No Deal Brexit makes it even more important the Government put an end to playing games with people’s livelihoods and call a General Election now.”
