"Brexit: Is it worth it?" bus tour - Durham


The national tour by a bus emblazoned with the slogan “Brexit to cost £2,000 million a week” and the question “Is Brexit worth it?” is in Durhamon 25th February.
North East for Europe will be welcoming the bus and holding a mini-rally in Durham market place from 11.45 to 12.15
Charles Seaford, one of the organisers, said “This is a light-hearted attempt to draw attention to a very big issue. The Government’s own leaked analysis is that Brexit with a Free Trade Agreement will cost us 5% of GDP after 15 years. At today’s prices that means being £2,000 million a week poorer than we otherwise would have been. To put this impact in context, we currently spend £2,500 million a week on the NHS across the UK”.
Here in the North East, our trading and cultural links with the rest of Europe are vital, and far from Brexit releasing extra money for the NHS, it is likely to make us, and our NHS much poorer.
