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 damage the future job opportunities of young people to appease their Brexit hardliners.
Liberals Democrats believe in free trade and an open immigration system that benefits our economy. Theresa May today 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
