Lib Dem leader Vince Cable has said that Philip Hammond has ‘lost the argument’ over Brexit, accusing the chancellor of abandoning his pro-remain stance in favour of a so-called ‘hard Brexit’.
‘I think Philip Hammond, who’s a very sensible guy, has actually lost the argument and has now signed up to effectively having this hard, extreme form of Brexit in two years time’.
‘I think that would be very damaging but he seems to have gone along with it’.
‘There are lots of people in the Labour Party who don’t want that outcome, and there are a lot of sensible Conservatives who don’t want that either, but as long as the leadership is pushing for this then the odds are it will happen’.
‘The Government, together with Jeremy Corbyn, are supporting this hard, extreme form of Brexit’.
