Theresa May's decision to pull Britain out of the Single Market will put up prices, damage our currency and increase unemployment. This will hurt young people in Britain more than any other age group, increasing the generational divide in our society.
For all the Tories claim to be the party of sound finances, today is another sign that they are willing to sacrifice future job opportunities for young people in order to appease Brexit hardliners. Liberals Democrats believe in free trade and an open immigration system that benefits our economy. Today Theresa May made the choice to pursue the opposite agenda - a UKIP vision of Brexit that damages British interests. Young Liberals stand firmly against this agenda and we will continue campaigning to keep Britain in the Single Market.
