Get Britain out of neutral: Conservatives launch new billboard

The Conservative Party launched a new billboard today, Get Britain out of neutral. The poster was launched at sites in London, Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham, Leeds, Bristol and Cardiff.

Jeremy Corbyn has claimed he will negotiate a new deal with the EU in three months but then refuse to back his own deal, staying neutral in his own second referendum.

Commenting, Conservative Party Chairman James Cleverly said:

“For the past three and a half years Britain has been stuck in neutral, unable to move forwards with endless arguments, deadlock and delays to honouring the referendum result.
“Only a vote for the Conservatives at this election will secure a working majority government that will stop the chaos in Parliament, end the uncertainty, get Brexit done and unleash Britain’s potential
“A vote for any other party will mean Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister, propped up by Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP, with 2020 wasted on another two chaotic referendums causing more uncertainty.
“It is only with a working Conservative majority government we can get Brexit done and get Britain moving again with our plans to invest more in our schools and hospitals, put 20,000 more police on our streets and unleash the potential of our whole country.”

Commenting, Therese Coffey, Secretary of State for the Department of Work and Pensions, said:

“Corbyn’s Pension Tax will see ten million savers facing a huge bill forcing them to delay their retirement for almost three and a half years.
“This is just one of the ways a Corbyn government would hammer hardworking people on top of his plans to hike up taxes by £2,400 a year, as well as the cost of his plan for unlimited immigration and the chaos of 2020 being dominated by two more referendums – one on Brexit and another on Scottish independence.
“Only Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party can get Brexit done with a deal, get parliament working again and turbocharge our economy to unleash Britain’s potential.”
