Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary has described the current economic situation in Britain as a “car crash” which he blamed on the country’s decision to vote to leave the European Union in 2016, Reuters reports.
O’Leary told a news conference in Rome that Britain needs a sensible trading agreement with the EU, saying
“The mini budget was a kind of spectacular failure of the whole concept of Brexit.”
O’Leary welcomed the appointment of Jeremy Hunt as chancellor, and the economic u-turn announced yesterday:
“The Remainers are coming back, the adults are taking charge again .. we will return to some sensible economic policies.”
He said he expected Truss to be out of office within a week or two, as she was now “in office but not in power”.
