Recent Conservative chairman Jake Berry has given his first interview since being appointed 20 days ago with a broadside on the individuals who “don’t think in Britain”.
The people attacking Liz Truss’s tax cutting vision are similar to the Remainers who attacked Brexit and “don’t consider in Britain”, recent Conservative chairman Jake Berry has told Express.co.uk.
In his first interview since being appointed by Ms Truss to steer the party to victory in the following election, Mr Berry hailed the brand new Government as a “fresh start for a recent era” in British history but warned his party is “within the battle of their lives.”
With the Labour party conference in Liverpool vowing to reverse large parts of Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng’s mini-budget, others, including former Tory leader Lord Hague, are criticising the expansion plan because the pound fluctuates on the markets. But Mr Berry said he has heard much the identical previously.
Speaking within the Churchill room in CCHQ (Conservative Party headquarters), he said: “I actually consider in Britain and our Prime Minister really believes in Britain. I do know that Britain can do that.
“If I’m really honest with you and I feel in regards to the collective voices which we now have heard doubting the incontrovertible fact that Britain can go for growth, I mean it really is identical individuals who opposed Brexit.
“It’s the identical people a number of years ago after Britain voted to depart the EU were saying ‘Britain can’t stand on her own two feet, we are able to’t be an independent sovereign nation outside the EU, you working people you didn’t know what you were doing, you were silly voting for Brexit.’
“Those self same voices, in truth in lots of cases the very same people, who’ve gone from being experts on European law to experts within the financial market overnight, saying we are able to’t do that.”
He added: “The message I might clearly give is that they were mistaken about Brexit and so they are mistaken about this Government’s ambition to grow this economy.”
