OUR Managing Director Simon Boyd urged politicians to present a united front for Brexit negotiations when he appeared on the BBC’s flagship Any Questions programme.
He warned that some politicians were damaging the position of the UK’s negotiators by playing party politics and that some (past and present) were deliberately trying to undermine the process with the aim of keeping us in the EU.
Mr Boyd, who is managing director of Christchurch-based REIDsteel, appeared on the Radio 4 programme in […]

Our 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’.

Mr Boyd writes in his letter: “We voted Out and that means Out please.
Out of the EU but not Out of Europe. Out of the damaging jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. Out of the single market […]

Mr Boyd’s comments come before Labour […]
