Lib Dem leader Vince Cable has compared Brexit to a ‘bad divorce’, saying:
‘We had a referendum, and as a consequence of it, Britain collectively decided to seek a divorce from the rest of the European Union’.
‘They didn’t decide to kick us out’.
‘They’ve set out a negotiating position from the outset that is very clear. There has to be some understanding around the rights of British citizens, some payments to settle, some outstanding bills, and once those are done we can move on’.
‘It’s always been very clear what the format is’.
‘If we just refused to pay, that would have very, very serious consequences. This is what happens when you have bad divorces. The partners become estranged very quickly’.
