This is the stirring Brexit warcry from a Conservative MEP: "We need to get on with it. It's much simpler than other trade deals."
Mark Carney, the chairman of the Bank of England, said yesterday that Brexit uncertainty is dragging down the UK economy, as well as people's wages.
But David Campbell Bannerman told Nick Ferrari that the only problem with Brexit is that it is taking too long.
He said: "We need to get on with it and hurry along.
"Remember it's much simpler than other trade deals, including Canada or the USA or Japan because we have no tariffs now, we have no quotas and all our laws are convergent.
"So yes we must protect our servievs and the City of London in particular, but that's what we're going to spend two years doing.
"So I don't understand all this negativity and difficulty. I think it's a deliberate attempt to slow the whole thing down and to undermine Brexit."
