The mask is starting to slip, and the Tories are now showing what their real plans for the UK leaving the EU will be – McDonnell

John
McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor
, commenting on reports that Philip Hammond’s
plans to turn Britain into a tax haven after Brexit, said:


“The mask is starting to slip, and the Tories are now showing what their
real plans for the UK leaving the EU will be. They want a Brexit for the rich,
using the negotiations as an excuse to impose policies that will benefit a few
at the top, paid for at the expense of the rest of us.

"Whether it’s Liam Fox wanting to tear up workplace rights or Philip
Hammond doing favours for the Tories’ tax-dodging corporate friends, it’s clear
that a Tory Brexit will leave us all worse off.

 

“Only Labour
is committed to delivering a Brexit that benefits everyone.”
