Fall in GDP growth is a sign of Brexit slowdown

Commenting today on the slowdown in GDP growth for the first three months of 2017, to 0.3% down from 0.7% in the previous quarter, Jon Nicholas, Lib Dem candidate for Bournemouth East, said: 

"The impact of Brexit on the economy is beginning to show, as the latest GDP figures prove.

"Bournemouth is feeling the consequences - JP Morgan is already considering shipping jobs to Dublin.

"If we are to protect our major and emerging local economies - tourism, our universities, financial services, the booming tech sector - and the jobs that go with them then we have to put the brakes on the Tories' disastrous hard Brexit."
