Statement on chaos in Westminster

Responding to recent events in Westminster, Andrew Adonis, Chair of the European Movement, said:

"Rather than making Brexit work, Boris Johnson is barely making it to the weekend.

"With every second that his fingernails dig deeper into the doorposts of Number 10, the very integrity of the Prime Minister’s office is being critically undermined.

"What started in 2016 as a false slogan on the side of a bus has manifested into a government founded upon deceit, dishonesty and delusion, setting an unacceptably low standard for public office and endorsing a dangerous leadership.

"These lies have landed us with a tanking economy, businesses collapsing, families worse off by over £1,000 a year and a reputation so tainted that countries around the world have turned their backs on us.

"This is a critical point in the Battle for the Soul of our Country, and we can only reclaim our future if politicians from all sides put our country ahead of Boris Johnson.

"The European Movement is the only organisation with the unwavering courage to expose the calamity of Brexit and reopen the conversation about our relationship with Europe that has so devastated Boris Johnson’s leadership."
