Osborn admits mistakes
George Osborne has admitted to regrets about his time in office and the mistakes that led to Brexit.
The former chancellor was a prominent figure in the ill-fated Remain campaign at the 2016 EU referendum, led by then prime minister David Cameron.
He said Mr Cameron government had been "too late in the day to explain the benefits of EU membership.
And, he told these Newsnight, it should not have set immigration targets it could not deliver.
That led to a debate about how you might deliver those targets," he said, and the government didn‘t make enough of the value of immigration.
