This threadbare deal risks livelihoods

Boris Johnson promised to make people better off, but his deal will make us all poorer.

This is a threadbare deal - bad for jobs, security, and our environment

This deal is threadbare, bad for jobs, business, security, and our environment. It is the only 'free' trade deal in history to put up barriers to trade and leaves the services sector in limbo.

This botched deal confirms that the UK's trade with Europe will now be wrapped in red tape - bringing long delays and higher costs. With so many businesses teetering on the brink of closing due to Covid, Johnson's deal will push many over the edge.

From what I've seen of the deal so far, it means
❌Far more bureaucracy
❌Far more delays
❌Far more costs

We all are desperate to move forward, to see our country united again, to restore our economy and our communities after a terrible year.

But Boris Johnson's deal just makes that more difficult.
