Jeremy Hunt brands Brexit 'threats' by businesses 'inappropriate'

However, aviation giant Airbus warned yesterday that it could pull out of Britain if it leaves the European Union without a deal, while carmaker BMW warned that uncertainty is affecting the investment climate.

Speaking to the BBC, Hunt suggested that Airbus and BMW, which this week slammed the lack of clarity on a deal, are actually undermining prime minister Theresa May during her negotiations with the European Union.

"It's all incredibly unhelpful and what we need to do now is to get closer with our European partners and work out what a realistic, pragmatic Brexit is that works for both sides, the EU and ourselves".

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has slammed businesses for issuing warnings about Brexit uncertainty.

"Brexit is bad not only because we want to keep things like it is, but because it is important to be within, in order to make changes".

Comedian Andy Parsons introduced prominent Remainers on-stage, including campaigner Gina Miller, actor Tony Robinson and former Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg, who claimed Brexiteer politicians were resorting to insults because the political momentum was falling away from them.

A spokesperson for the Prime Minister said the government was confident the United Kingdom would get a deal that "ensures trade is as free and frictionless as possible" and said it was in nobody's interest to disrupt cross-border supply chains.

"The British people deserve a lot more than a no deal Brexit". "The younger people in this country, many of whom will be out there marching today, are going to have to live with these decisions", he said.

But a pro-Brexit marcher, Shazia Hobbs told the BBC: "We voted to leave so we should leave".

Airbus in total supports roughly 100,000 jobs in Britain, with 14,000 people directly employed by the company there.

Brexit supporters marched elsewhere in the city, but their march drew a much smaller crowd.

"I don't think the British are in a very coherent position at the moment in terms of what they want".

"They don't want some sort of hopeless compromise, some perpetual push me-pull you arrangement in which we stay half-in and half-out in a political no man's land".

We don't want them to be affected by friction at the borders. Airbus also says a proposed transition deal that runs through December 2020 is too short for the company to reorganize its supply chain.

There was also a majority view that business leaders had not been properly consulted, or their views taken into account, by the European Union negotiating team as it tries to hammer out a post-Brexit trade deal.

Echoing calls from German engineering giant Siemens earlier this week, Airbus said Friday it needed immediate details on how its operations would have to be realigned.

The move could impact tens of thousands of jobs and costs the British economy billions of pounds a year.

Addressing the conference of the grassroots Open Labour group in London, the MP, whose Hayes and Harrington constituency in West London voted Leave, said he wanted to avoid a Ukip resurgence or a repeat of xenophobia that marred the 2016 vote.
