Gordon Brown: Don't let Boris Johnson push UK off a cliff

The former PM says a no-deal Brexit would be a national act of self-harm for which the country is ill-prepared. Gordon Brown has accused Boris Johnson of preparing to push the British economy “off a cliff”. Ahead of Mr Johnson’s expected election on Tuesday as Tory leader, the former prime minister said a no-deal break with the EU would be a “self-inflicted wound” comparable in military terms to the Charge of the Light Brigade. In a speech to the Hope Not Hate campaign in London, Mr Brown warned the Brexiteers were in danger of descending into a brand of “paranoid nationalism” which risked breaking up the United Kingdom.
