THERESA May has told Brexiteers that the Nation must ‘Accept her Brexit plan’ or there will be “no Brexit at all”.
May said on Sunday that there may be “no Brexit at all” if they wrecked her plan to forge a close relationship with the European Union after leaving the world’s biggest trading bloc.
“My message to the country this weekend is simple: we need to keep our eyes on the prize,” said May.
The prize is her plan, not a real Brexit – she then said: “If we don’t, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all.”
Linking the fate of Brexit to her own survival in such an explicit way indicates just how precarious May’s position remains after her government was thrust into crisis and U.S. President Donald Trump publicly criticised her Brexit strategy.
Former Brexit Secretary, David Davis – who resigned last week over the plan said it was a “astonishingly dishonest claim” to say there is no worked-out alternative to May’s plan.
He said her plan would allow EU regulations to harm British manufacturers.
“Be in no doubt: under the government’s proposal our fingers would still be caught in this mangle and the EU would use it ruthlessly to punish us for leaving and handicap our future competitiveness,” Davis said.
Steve Baker MP who was the deputy to David Davis said May had a “cloak and dagger” plot to undermine Brexit.
Jacob Rees-Mogg, who leads the Brexit-supporting European Research Group (ERG) in Parliament, has said he now fears the Prime Minister “is a Remainer who has Remained a Remainer”, and does not believe that her plan will or even can deliver a real Brexit, because she does not believe in it.
