Cardinal: we shouldn’t be gloomy about Brexit


In an article for the Catholic Herald Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor said leaving the EU was a ‘huge step’ in British history

We must not be “prophets of gloom” over Brexit, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor has said.

Writing in this week’s Catholic Herald, the former Archbishop of Westminster compares Brexit to the “seismic event” of the Second Vatican Council.


Best attitude really. I am pro-leave but I do understand peoples fears and gloom for the future.


Brexit seems to have arrived at a wishful thinking about wishful thinking stage.
