WHILE the Liberal Democrats are campaigning on a promise of an EU referendum re-run, their former leader’s wife has said we need to get on with Brexit, and fast.
Spanish EU trade lawyer and wife to Nick Clegg, Miriam Gonzalez, said while she is very upset by the result – which she described as a slow motion car crash – she has no time for those who think there can be another vote.
“What I see in business is half of the people are in denial mode, they are hoping something can reverse this,” she said, “I think it would be much better if everybody accepts this is going to happen, so let’s be practical.”
The Spanish citizen, who has negotiated top trade deals between the EU and World Trade Organisation, argued Britain must move quickly to build bilateral trade deals.
“We need to be ruthless and focus on top priorities,” she said, “they (the government) need to get their act together and wake up and smell the coffee, stop focusing on internal leadership elections and get on with calming the people.”
