Mayor de Londres declaraca que "o Brexit não está a funcionar"
January 12, 2023 - O presidente da Câmara de Londres, Sadiq Khan, acredita que o governo está em “negação” acerca do “imenso dano” que o Brexit está causar ao RU, quando uma recente sondagem mostra menos apoio à saída da UE.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has attacked the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, saying the consequences of its actions “can’t be airbrushed out of history”.
The Labour mayor is calling for a shift to greater alignment with Europe, saying, “I simply can’t keep quiet about the immense damage Brexit is doing”.
In October 2021, the independent Office for Budget Responsibility estimated that Brexit would reduce GDP by 4% a year, compared with if the UK had remained in the EU.
Mr Khan goes on to say, “After two years of denial and avoidance, we must now confront the hard truth: Brexit isn’t working”.
A recent poll of British people shows that support for Brexit has fallen considerably, with 54% of those canvassed believing it was a bad idea, compared with 35% who think it was right.
