Response to David Davis ‘global race to the top’ speech

As Green Party Brexit speaker, Molly has responded to today’s speech by David Davis in Vienna in which he claimed the government wants to lead a ‘global race to the top’, citing UK legislation to regulate drones. She said:

“Davis droning on about his determination to lead a race to the top in global standards is countered by his Brexiteers friends from free-market think-tanks plotting for the UK to adopt lower US safety standards on food and drugs.

“Pledging to avoid a Mad Max style dystopian world is setting the bar pretty low. What happened to the sunlit uplands of freedom and prosperity? Perhaps a more apt fictional comparison would be the Mad Hatter’s tea party where Brexiteers demand cake but are served up instead with chlorinated chicken and hormone-reared beef.

“As the fictional and fanciful promises evaporate we must demand our right to a Final Say referendum on the real deal, with an option of remaining in the EU.”
