Comment on David Davis resignation
David Davis (left) has resigned as Brexit Secretary.
Commenting on the resignation and the chaos engulfing the UK government, Scottish Labour for the Single Market co-chair Ian Murray MP said:
“The architect of this Brexit shambles has decided to resign because he and his cohort of hard Brexiteers can’t deliver the cliff-edge Brexit that will devastate the UK economy.
“Every single job lost, and every pound taken out of the economy, David Davis will own. It is cowardice in the extreme to walk away.
“With the Tories in absolute chaos, there is now an opportunity for Labour to present a realistic alternative to the country to get us out of this mess.
“If we want to save jobs and grow the economy, we must move immediately to support membership of the European Single Market and Customs Union. This golden opportunity must not be missed.”
