Responding to the pound falling to its lowest level against the dollar and the euro this year as worries increase that the UK will leave the EU without a trade deal, Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable said:
“This does not reflect the underlying value of the currency. What this does show is the weakening of confidence in the UK, as well as the grave risks to the UK caused by the spectre of Brexit.
“This is one of the reasons why we need to be clear that Brexit is not inevitable. The British people must have a final say on any deal - or, even worse, no-deal - with the option of staying in the EU.”
