BREXIT: ‘No deal’ will be a disaster

editorial image

With less than six months to go now for the UK to negotiate a ‘good’ deal with the EU, time is fast running out.

Any deal will make us poorer than we are now, but a ‘no deal’ will be a disaster, especially for the north east.

A ‘no deal’ will mean a cut of 16 per cent to GDP in the region – that equates to 200,000 jobs. Put another way, that is one in six of the current total.

Did we vote in the referendum to have our jobs destroyed?
