Former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has criticised Theresa May’s Brexit policy saying: ‘This is Euroscepticism gone mad. Theresa May’s approach to Brexit poses a direct threat to our national security’.
These comments relate to Mr. Clegg’s belief that leaving the EU would mean losing access to European crime databases, which could potentially hinder the fight against terrorism.
‘Theresa May’s extreme approach to Brexit will have the direct consequence of severing our ties to a fantastically useful weapon in our armoury against terrorism’.
‘It is hard to overstate the importance of this database. We check it 16 times a second, looking for security threats that have been flagged to us by other European countries, and we use it to tell other countries to stop and question people who we think are potential terrorists’.
