Anna Soubry, the former Minister of State for Small Business, Industry and Enterprise, has criticised Liam Fox for a lack of clarity over Brexit.
Speaking to the Guardian newspaper Soubry said:
“Liam Fox’s speech this week was very worrying; in fact, it was delusional. How can we have ‘freer’ free trade? Let’s get real, for God’s sake. It’s really worrying that these are the senior people who have the future of our country in their hands. May is the voice of sanity, and without her I don’t know where the three Brexiteers would take us.”
“It’s for her not to rely on Boris, Liam and David. She has to come forward and she has to tell us what those guiding principles, what the plan, is”.
Fox had the week before criticised the UK’s business sector, saying:
“This country is not the free-trading nation it once was. We have become too lazy, and too fat on our successes in previous generations”.
