Baroness Ros Altmann who sits in the UK’s House of Lords has compared Brexit to a pensions mis-selling scandal while interviewed on TalkRadio.
“It promises you a wonderful product… but all those promises have been proven not to be true”.
The UK is still in deep turmoil over Brexit and there have been numerous allegations of corruption, law breaking and improper use of data.
“We’d have lots of extra money to spend on things that are important, but all those promises have been proven not to be true,” she said. “They clearly said we’d have benefits of being in the EU without having to abide by the rules. That isn’t true. If we want to leave the single market and the customs union, that’s ok as far as not following EU rules is concerned, but we’d lose all the free trade we currently have.”
The UK is due to leave the EU on March 29. The governments Withdrawal Agreement, however, has just been voted down in one of the biggest Commons defeats in British history.
Many MPs are working desperately to avoid a ‘no deal’ Brexit, which would be highly damaging to both the UK and the EU.
Various amendments are still to be debated, but all the while, concerns over the legitimacy of the Brexit vote in June 2016 continue to rage.
