Political commentator Benjamin Loughnane dismissed the former Chancellor’s Brexit claims during an interview with journalist Kevin O’Sullivan. Mr Loughnane brushed off Mr Osbourne’s comments, saying the EU might not even exist in 20 years. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has come under heavy pressure to settle proposed trade deals to boost Britain’s economy. The political commentator also said the lagging UK economy was due to the lockdowns and not Brexit.
Mr O’Sullivan said: “He’s gone, but he’s now predicting that we could indeed be back in the EU in 20 years, because leaving Europe has done so much damage to our economy.

“How can you turn around and blame this on Brexit, it’s absolutely far-fetched.”
Mr O’Sullivan added: “Well I think George is just desperate to say he was right all along but if you look at George we still think you were wrong all along and that’s why you are no longer in politics.”

Mr Reeves said: “A modern supply-side approach cannot and should not ignore the task of making Brexit work for UK businesses and consumers.
“We must therefore fix the flaws in the Brexit deal that plague our food and drink makers, our creative industries, our professional services and more, by fixing and strengthening our supply chains and building on the UK-EU trade deal to cut red tape for exporters.
“We need to adopt an approach that seeks to solve problems in a practical way for British businesses and aims to build trust, rather than continually retreating into the Brexit issue as a domestic political wedge.”
