A massive £1 billion investment in South Yorkshire is proof that Britain will boom outside the EU, according to a prominent Leave campaigner.
Amjad Bashir, Conservative MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber, today welcomed the investment from China which will fund key regeneration projects in Sheffield.
He said: “EU funding is not the only game in town, despite the scare stories and the doom-mongering.
“There is life outside the EU and a prosperous life too. This shows what we can achieve when we look out to the whole globe and its new economic power-houses instead of tying ourselves to the inward-looking, stalled economies of the EU.”
