In her World Economic Forum speech in Davos Prime Minister May said the UK will “continue to be global advocate for free trade” after Brexit.
Mrs Bearder reacted:
“Leaving the biggest single market on the planet is a strange way of advocating free trade.
“British businesses will look on with horror as they see the Tories sever our ties with over 400 million consumers on the continent.
“We must give the public the chance to endorse or reject any deal this Tory government manages to cobble together. We owe that to the people who were lied to in the referendum."
