The fight against terrorism relies on European cooperation

Commenting on MI5 chief Andrew Parker's speech, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesperson Ed Davey said:

"The chief of MI5 could not be clearer - Britain's security and our fight against terrorism now relies on European cooperation more than ever in our history.
"So for this Brexit Conservative Government to play Russian roulette with the safety and security of Britain could not be more reckless. 
"Despite all the promises, there is no evidence that the Brexit negotiations have produced any deal on security that can match what we have now.

"While it is in the interests of both sides to find some compromise, it's scandalous that the Conservatives have led our country to the point where we will have to compromise on our security, given these heightened threats and the historic importance of European cooperation."
