U-turn over borders shows Govt's Brexit bluster has collided with reality


 U-turn over borders shows Govt's Brexit bluster has collided with realityLayla Moran has called the Government's U-turn embarrassing after the government backtracked on plans for full border checks after Brexit.

Responding to the news [FT Pay Wall] the government has backtracked on plans for full border checks after Brexit, Liberal Democrat MP and leadership candidate Layla Moran said:  "This embarrassing U-turn shows the government's Brexit bluster has collided with cold hard reality. Ministers have failed to recruit enough customs agents, failed to put in place the necessary infrastructure and now their plans are in utter disarray.

"These proposals would still leave businesses facing reams of paperwork and are in no way a long-term solution. It’s becoming clear the country cannot afford the economic damage and chaos of a no deal Brexit at the end of this year. Time is running out for the government to agree to an extension and put people’s livelihoods first.”
