Post-Brexit Britain faces battle between progressive and regressive forces - IPPR
IPPR Director Tom Kibasi, responded to the referendum outcome
"Britain has chosen to go it alone and to enter the wilderness. It is a great leap in the dark and we do not know where we will land. The economic damage has already been colossal.
"Leave campaigners have promised higher wages, more money for the NHS, lower levels of immigration, and a stronger economy. If it turns out that the British people have been sold a false prospectus, there will be huge anger.
"Soon a new battle must be joined. The battle for the vision of Britain. We will fight for a progressive country that holds true to its values of decency, tolerance, respect, and justice. We will never let go of our values."
