Lord Adonis has compared Brexit to the failed Nazi appeasement strategy, saying:
‘Leaving the economic institutions of the European Union, which have guided our destiny as a trading nation for half a century, is a very big step and the importance can’t be over-emphasized’
‘To my mind, it’s as big a step that we’re taking as a country as decolonization in the 1950s and 60s, and appeasement in the 1930s’.
‘We got it right on decolonisation, we got it wrong on appeasement, and I think we’re in serious danger of getting it wrong in the way that we leave the EU’.
‘If we can’t have our cake and eat it, then we face a serious relative decline in our living standards compared with France and Germany, and I don’t believe the British people will put up with that’.
