In response to threats from big business, Boris Johnson responded with
It amazing that so many get offended by Boris but are happy to take the constant threats and abuse from Barnier and co. Boris summed up what the majority of Brexiters think when we get interventions and threats from spokespersons of big bussiness.
Big business, including their lobby group the CBI wanted us in the EU, the single market, the customs union and the euro. All of which may be in their narrow interest but that is not the same as being in the national interest. The national sovereignty of our country and democracy is far more important than Businesses views.
The Conservative Party is not in thrall to big bussiness to the point of being puppets like the Labour Party is in thrall to the unions to the point that they are puppets.
