Weston Liberal Democrat Prospective Liberal Democrat Candidate for Weston slams Tory Government over not listening to local business such as Airbus.

June 22, 2018 10:51 AM

Local resident and recently appointed Lib Dem Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Weston-super-Mare, Worle and surrounding villages said a Tory Hard Brexit will mean local job losses as Airbus plans move away from UK.

Today, Airbus has announced that the Tory government's failure to provide clarity on the UK's trading relationship with the EU means that it is seriously considering closing its UK operations.

Many of the aerospace company's 3,000 employees at its Bristol factory live in the Weston super Mare area and Brexit job losses at Airbus and its suppliers will seriously impact families and businesses across the South West of England.

Patrick Keating, Liberal Democrat Prospective MP for Weston, Worle and the villages said: "The government's reckless approach to the Brexit negotiations, failure to listen to business and pursuit of a damaging hard Brexit will have a real impact of the livelihoods of people in Weston and surrounding area. Only the Liberal Democrats are fighting for an Exit from Brexit and to give the people the final say on the Brexit deal."

Meanwhile, the Conservative MP for Weston super Mare, John Penrose has joined Jacob Rees Mogg and other hard Brexit supporters to pursue a damaging hard Brexit. And Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party have failed to provide an effective opposition to the Government's damaging Brexit plans.
