‘No budget would be able to compensate for the damage of a reckless no-deal Brexit’ – John McDonnell

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to reports that Boris Johnson is planning a No Deal emergency budget, said “No budget would be able to compensate for the damage of a reckless no-deal Brexit.

“But even Johnson is now waking up to the damage No Deal would wreak on an economy already weak after almost a decade of cuts and under-investment.

“Rather than attempting to manage the harm caused by this reckless policy, why not do what businesses and trade unions are telling him do, and rule out a no-deal Brexit?”
