Brexit infecting government, says Lord Adonis

Brexit is “infecting” the whole conduct of government, Lord Adonis has told the BBC in the wake of his resignation as infrastructure adviser.

 The former Labour minister quit his role as chairman of the government’s Infrastructure Commission with an attack on Theresa May’s strategy for leaving the EU.

He said Mrs May was “pursuing a course fraught with danger”.

A government source said he quit before he was pushed, which he denied.

“He’s been moving closer towards the exit door with each new onslaught he makes against Brexit,” the source said.

“He’s now walked through the door before he was pushed.”

But Lord Adonis told the BBC: “My differences with the government had become too great – not only on Brexit, which I think is being handled very badly… but increasingly Brexit is infecting the whole conduct of Whitehall, we’re seeing that including in infrastructure itself.”
