I believe leaving without a deal would be catastrophic for jobs, living standards and would lead to a hard border in Northern Ireland. In human terms this means increased food prices at a time when all too many are having to turn to food banks. It could also lead to food shortages and limited access to medicines – in fact some pharmacists are already finding it harder to source certain drugs. ‘No deal’ also means that in just over a week we would be locked out of security data bases, and we’d no longer be able to activate the European Arrest Warrant leaving the UK less secure and more vulnerable to terror attacks. There is no silver bullet on Brexit and no scenario that keeps everyone happy. That’s why MPs are narrowing down the options and discarding those which don’t carry support in Westminster. But crashing out of Europe would be disastrous. I’m grateful to everyone who is sharing their views with me whether those are leave or remain. I’m here to represent your views and none of the decisions Parliament is taking are easy. I’m hopeful a solution will be found in the coming week.
