Our response to cross-party Brexit talks collapse
17 May 2019
Jasmine Whitbread, CEO of London First said: “After much farce and folly, cross-party talks have failed and Parliament has shown itself to be incapable of reaching a consensus.
“We’ve now wasted more than a 1000 days and squandered billions of pounds in Brexit planning. Going round and round in circles and expecting a different result is futile and another round of indicative votes is utterly pointless. It is unlikely to achieve anything but further delay and more uncertainty.
“Enough is enough: it’s time to take the decision back to the people. That is now the only way to end the uncertainty once and for all. The alternative is permanent paralysis.”
