Brexit will cost and the question is who pays. The Tories see matching the world’s lowest Corporation Tax and “liberalising” labour laws as a weapon in exit negotiations and a blueprint for a post-Brexit Britain. May said she would guarantee existing EU protections but allowed Tory MPs to talk out a law to enforce them. Higher taxes for us and more insecure jobs will be the price of a Tory Brexit. No wonder she wanted a “snap” election.
