[100 word news] – Brexiteers ‘paralysed by the impending damage of their own prejudices’, says Nick Clegg

Nick Clegg has said that Brexit means Britain has become ‘more marginal in European affairs’, and that high profile Brexiteers have become ‘paralysed by the impending damage of their own prejudices’.

Mr. Clegg accused pro-Brexit politicians of focusing on trivial matters, such as the wearing of ties in the House of Commons, at the expense of more important issues.

‘This is what happens when a country is cut adrift, moving helplessly towards the rocks of a ‘hard’ Brexit. The architects of our misfortune, paralysed by the impending damage of their own prejudices, dwell instead on the minutiae of small differences’.

‘Our neo-colonial self confidence after the war has now given way to a position of constitutional isolation where no other European democracy has followed our lead’.
