PM must put pride aside and take the offered extensionFollowing a letter from Michel Barnier to cross-party Members of Parliament, Layla Moran MP has called on the Prime Minister to put his pride aside and focus on the crisis in front of him.

In response to a letter from Michel Barnier to cross-party Members of Parliament, stating that the EU remains open to an extension of the transition period, Layla Moran MP has called on the Prime Minister to put his pride aside and focus on the crisis in front of him. 

Lib Dem MP, and Leadership candidate, Layla Moran said: "The transition period was designed to give us time to secure a trade deal and make preparations for it to come into effect. That time has already, and understandably, been decimated by the Coronavirus response. This makes a dangerous No Deal Brexit more likely at the end of the year, unless we extend the transition period. 

"I am urging the Prime Minister to put his pride aside, tackle the crisis in front of him, and take the extension he's being offered."
