Guardian: Tories have 33-point lead over Labour on economic competence, ICM poll suggests – Politics live

Date: 21 11 2016

Leave Means Leave, the successor organisation to Leave.EU, has put out a statement saying a transitional Brexit deal would be unacceptable. Richard Tice, its co-chair, said:

Businesses want certainty as soon as possible, which is why Britain must leave the EU within a maximum period of two years after triggering article 50 – no EU deal is better than a bad deal – and leaving the single market and customs union as soon as possible are key to enabling the UK to take the opportunities provided by Brexit.

A transitional deal will fuel more uncertainty and leave Britain in limbo.

British voters have made it clear that they want to leave the EU and the government must deliver on this in full and at the soonest opportunity – two years after triggering Article 50, or sooner if the EU fails to negotiate.
