The former Prime Minister is not hopeful about the UK’s chances of securing a good Brexit deal and even suggests there will be a “crisis point” where voters should be allowed another referendum.
Appearing on Newsnight, Mr Brown said: “I think we’re going to come to a crisis point next summer.
“I can’t tell you exactly how it’s going to work out but this is what’s going to happen: by next summer the public will have made up their mind but the four red lines that the Government had actually set in place are not going to be achieved, they are going to be crossed.
“So we will not have proper control of borders, we will not have proper control over our money – we’re going to pay loads of money to the European Union – we will not have proper control of our courts and law because will still be governed in many
ways by the European Court of Justice and we will have proper control of trade because we won’t have individual trade agreements for years.
“And so all the propositions made by the Leave camp, including the £350 million a week for the NHS, they’re not being achieved.”
Gordon Brown served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1997-2007 and was a prominent Remainer during the referendum.
He suggested that there could be the prospect of a second referendum if the electorate changes their mind.
He added: “So, next summer we’ve got to assess the position and, in my view, you cannot go back to the electorate and say ‘you were wrong’, you can’t do that.
