Asked on Question Time if the UK would be poorer after Brexit, Labour's Shadow International Trade Secretary Barry Gardiner says "absolutely".
"You do not pursue free trade with the world by leaving the largest free trade bloc in the world, which is the European Union... The Labour Party will leave the European Union because we respect the democratic mandate of the British people. But be clear equally that when we do, we will be doing it for political reasons, not economic reasons."
So everyone knows full well it's a shit show but because people are thick and don't understand how democracy works we've got to go through with it for reasons.
Imagine if anything else in the world was run like that, so wilfully self-destructive.
