European Movement Statement on Liz Truss

Published on October 20, 2022

Since the UK crashed out of the EU, our country has stumbled from one crisis to another. Businesses have collapsed, prices have soared, and hardworking people have paid the price.

Politicians have refused to engage with the economic truth and confront the chaos that leaving the EU has created.

But as Brexit takes out its fourth Prime Minister, it’s time to be honest with the British public: What started as a false slogan on the side of a bus has begun to erode the soul of our country.

And here’s the reality: Brexit still risks fundamentally and forever changing the character of our country for the worse.

But who we are can be decided by the people and shaped by our optimism, no matter how regularly tested it is. Our courage, which runs deep when we need it, can define us. And it can be our empathy, our willingness to see each other not as enemies and traitors but as fellow Britons and Europeans, that can save us.

That is why we must take action to reclaim our country’s soul and restore our future – surely few things can be more important than that.

The next Prime Minister must stop the financial self-harm, halt the hurt and decide who we are as a country.

The European Movement is the only organisation with the courage to expose the calamity of Brexit and win the Battle for the Soul of our Country.
