Brexiteers destroyed Britain’s future, says former Bank of England governor

Brexiteers destroyed Britain’s future, the former Bank of England governor Mark Carney has claimed.

Mr Carney made his comments as he delivered a keynote address at Canada 2020’s economic lookahead dinner in Toronto on Monday (22 April).

Mr Carney said: “Some right-wing populists see current anxieties as an opportunity to stoke anger because anger is what’s necessary for their project. After all, people don’t demolish things when htey are positive or optimistic.

“I know this from my time in the UK, where for years the rallying cry of Brexiteers has broken Britain, and their solution to take back control was actually code for tear down your future.”
