KEIR Starmer (pictured) will deliver a speech on Brexit tomorrow — as a report expected to be critical of the government’s approach is due to be published.
The Shadow Brexit secretary is likely to be scathing about prime minister Theresa May’s strategy for exiting the EU when he addresses the Royal United Services Institute on Friday.
He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme on Monday that a no-deal Brexit would mean a hard border for Northern Ireland, adding that a government that can’t reach a deal doesn’t deserve to continue.
Meanwhile, The UK in a Changing Europe think tank will deliver a report on how Brexit could threaten the nation’s security.
The non-partisan organisation is likely to set out its concerns about Europol, data sharing and the European Arrest Warrant.
