Molly challenges those on the left, known as Lexit, who are supporting the UK leaving the EU.

Key quote:

“Neoliberalism is not a disease unique to the EU. Leaving the EU would simply result in leading, highly neoliberal, Brexit MPs taking control of our country. It would not lead to some glorious socialist revolution. The only revolution would be an uprising against a raft of EU environmental and social legislation, under the guise of ‘reducing red tape’. This would leave workers, our important nature habitats and the health of our citizens in far worse shape than is currently the case within the EU.”
