NE in EUWhen asked on the Today Programme this morning whether the government is still prepared to crash out of the EU with no deal in 2020, the Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said "yes absolutely."

Dr Wendy Taylor, Liberal Democrats candidate for Newcastle East hit back, saying:

"Dominic Raab has been forced to admit the Tories' dirty secret: a no-deal Brexit is still on the table.

"Boris Johnson's extreme Brexit plan would lead to us crashing out of the EU by the end of 2020, egged on by Donald Trump who wants to exploit a weakened UK.

"People deserve better. It's not too late to stop the damage to our economy, NHS and public finances from a Johnson Trump Brexit.

"This election is a chance to stop Boris, stop Brexit, and build a brighter future."
