Dorset business chief Ian Girling backed a stinging Brexit rebuke for politicians at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) conference in London.

Ian, who is chief executive of Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry, threw his weight behind a hard-hitting speech from BCC director general Adam Marshall about the Brexit chaos.

A delegation from Dorset was thrust into the heart of the Brexit debate as they attended the annual BCC conference at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre opposite the Houses of Parliament.

In his keynote speech to a packed conference hall Dr Marshall warned, “To Westminster we say, we are frustrated. We are angry. You have let British business down.”

He added “We in business must make it clear that our elected representatives cannot keep chasing rainbows.

“Like all of us in in business, they need to start making tough decisions, however personally or politically difficult they might be.”

Speakers at the conference included Chief Secretary to the Treasury Liz Truss MP, London Mayor Sadiq Khan, Theresa May’s de facto deputy David Lidington MP and Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Kier Starmer.

Ian said, “I completely endorse the BCC view that this Brexit chaos has continued for far too long.

“Dorset businesses, like others at the conference have remained resilient and resolute as politicians have gone around in circles for three years but we need some decisions and we need them now.”

Ian added, “Aside from Brexit, there was a great deal of positivity in the hall as we discussed such developments as AI and heard from high-calibre business speakers.”
