Sir Ian Cheshire, chairman of Barclays UK, the former boss of Kingfisher and a Remainer, says the country now needs to get on with Brexit after Prime Minister Boris Johnson agreed a withdrawal deal with the EU.

“It is an acceptable deal,” he tells the BBC’s Today. “No deal is perfect but this deal is actually doable and it is I think very frustrating to see what appears to be a protracted process when most business leaders would like to see some certainty and get on.”

He says: “The chances of yet another round of negotiations are extremely unlikely to yield anything significantly different and now the delay is beginning to affect consumer confidence, particularly investment confidence and I think we have to push ahead and make the best of what we’ve got coming down the track.”
