O'Neill right, future of UK is in unsafe hands - Cable

Responding to former Treasury Minister Lord O'Neill's comments that leading Brexiteers in the government have "no clue about the world economy", Vince Cable, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, said:

“Jim O'Neill is absolutely right to say that leading Brexiteers are clueless about the world economy.

“The future of our country is resting in their hands yet they have shown time and time again that they have a chronic misconception of how the modern, globalised world works.

“Of course it is right to disown Trump's nationalistic and short-sighted approach to Pacific countries but far-flung trade deals will never compensate for leaving the world's largest market sitting on our doorstep.

“The British people must be given a chance to decide their own future, they must be given a chance to exit from Brexit.”
