Key quote:

“To those plotting our exit from the EU, ‘hard Brexit’ means above all else leaving the single market and stopping freedom of movement.

“Talk of the UK being able to liberalise its trading arrangements and strike up competitive deals with countries across the world would mean the risk of a race to the bottom for British workers, forced to compete with workers in countries like China and Brazil.

“The Green Party are clear: the UKs interests are best served by staying as close to the EU as possible, ensuring we protect both jobs, workers’ rights and the environment. Greens believe that our future vision needs to broaden beyond trade to include vital social and environmental issues.”
