Fox must come clean on failure to secure trade deals
Responding to comments from Liam Fox that revealing the current status of trade negotiations is commercially sensitive, Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake said:
People are likely to be incredibly angry and exasperated that Liam Fox refuses to provide more information about key trade deals.
Fox says that revealing the status of trade negotiations with key global allies is commercially sensitive, but in reality his inability to secure trade deals is professionally sensitive; when the truth comes out it could cost him his job.
The only way to guarantee trade relationships is by taking no deal off the table and offering people the final say on Brexit, with a people’s vote and an option to remain in the EU.
