Prime Minister accused of “gambling with Britain’s security”

The EU is preparing to disconnect the UK from key crime-fighting databases in the case of a disorderly hard Brexit, it was revealed today. This comes after Theresa May threatened to use security as a bargaining chip in the Brexit negotiations and has said that “no deal would be better than a bad deal.”

Liberal Democrat MP and senior member of the Brexit Committee Alistair Carmichael commented: “The seamless sharing of information across the EU is absolutely vital in the fight against serious crime and terrorism. As a former Home Secretary, Theresa May should know this better than anyone else. But instead of securing access to vital crime-fighting measures, our Prime Minister is gambling with Britain’s security by threatening to crash out of the EU without a deal. Britain has led the way on European security cooperation in the past, we must continue to do so in future.”
