Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake has today slammed the Tory Government following confirmation from the Office for Budget Responsibility that a Brexit dividend doesn’t exist
Mr Brake said: “The Office for Budget Responsibility have confirmed that the so-called Brexit dividend doesn’t exist. Instead, they rightly warn that Brexit is more likely to weaken than strengthen public finances.
“Clearly the Brexit dividend is just a figment of the Prime Minister’s imagination. Claims about investment for the NHS are therefore false and misleading. The Tories are letting patients and our hardworking NHS staff down.
"The only way to protect our public services is to avoid this Brexit mess by giving the people a final say on the deal, and an opportunity to Exit from Brexit.”
