It’s time for the Tories to go and let Labour take over the negotiations – McDonnell

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to former Bank of England governor Lord King’s claims that the Tory government’s Brexit preparations are “incompetent”, said:

“The Tories have spent more time arguing with themselves than they have negotiating with Europe.

“Mervyn King has hit the nail on the head. This government has displayed a staggering level of incompetence. It’s time for the Tories to go and let Labour take over the negotiations. It’s time for change.”
