Brexit to the letterOur managing director Simon Boyd has personally written to every single MP in the UK to urge a clean break from the European Union.
As debate continues at the start of formal Brexit negotiations today, Simon has sent letters to all 650 MPs at Westminster – including the Prime Minister – urging them not to ‘snatch defeat from the jaws of victory’.

“Out of the customs union that ties us to trading to a protectionist block.”

Simon’s letter comes after PM Theresa May vowed to keep pre-election plans to leave the single market and customs union to allow the UK to negotiate free trade partnerships around the world.
