Theresa May's speech – Statement from David Martin MEP

"The Conservative government's cards are now on the table. Theresa May is taking the UK out of the Single Market, out of the Customs Union and quite possibly into oblivion.

There is nothing 'global' about taking Britain out of the world's biggest and most integrated market. Try telling German exporters, successful all over the world, that being a member of the EU somehow limits their trade opportunities.
On a wafer thin majority she is taking the most extreme option, putting party before people. If she remains on this course she risks breaking up not one union but two."
