Article 127: the latest Brexit legal challenge is just another delay which will damage our economy

The greatest short-term risk to Britain’s future prosperity lies in the actions of a disparate group of “remoaners” who are determined to delay Brexit. So committed a part of the European political elite are they that they are willing to sacrifice the economy in the process.

Hence their bid for a judicial review over Britain’s remaining in the European Economic Area (EEA) and/or the so called “single market”. They claim that remaining a part of these is entirely compatible with Brexit.

In fact, staying in these zones would mean we may as well have never left at all, as we would be subject to the “four freedoms” including the free movement of people, and be ruled by the European Court of Justice in most aspects of our lives.

We need to join together to find the best outcome Instead of pursuing these legal challenges, these Remainers should embrace a new and brighter future which will result in cheaper prices for UK consumers and low inflation by removing EU-imposed tariffs, in a “tax cut” for business through deregulation, an export boost through trade deals around the world and a lower pound, and the repatriation of our net contribution to the EU.

Business people around the country, both those who voted to leave and to remain, are joining together to seek the best outcome for Britain and to make it the best place in the world to do business.

Beware reputationally damaged former Prime Ministers. Beware a failed leader of a confused political party. And remember that the establishment are ruthless in pursuit of their own interests.

John Longworth is Co Chairman of Leave means Leave.
