UK rejecting talks in London is 'shocking and petulant'

The UK Government, via Lord Frost, has spoken to Michel Barnier and told him not to travel to London on Monday for trade talks.

Commenting, Best for Britain CEO Naomi Smith said:

"The government's position on this is frankly shocking and petulant.

"The EU have said they want a deal and are willing to come to London on Monday. What do we think we'll gain by shutting the door?

"Brinkmanship has costs. There are millions of jobs on the line and the country is facing an unprecedented recession. Adding more taxes and barriers to our business with Europe is going to be devastating.

"Standing up for Britain doesn't look like this."
