UKIP Leader Gerard Batten has hit-out at Prime Minister Theresa May following her speech closing the Tory Party Conference.
Appeaser Theresa, who pointedly refused to refer to the hated Chequers deal by name, closed the Conference promising that “her Conservative government” would deliver a Brexit that respected the will of the British people to leave the EU.
Interestingly and in a nod to her critics within the Conservative Party, she referred back to her speech in Lancaster House and sought to build a continuity between that and the Chequers sell-out. However, Mr Batten was not impressed.
“Mrs May’s speech at the Tory party conference was chock-full of empty rhetoric. Yet again, she speaks up for all the things she opposed during the referendum campaign yet still nothing happens. said Batten.
“Theresa May is a Remainer who has no intention of taking us out of the European Union in any real sense whatsoever. Her strategy is to make pleasing noises yet say very little of substance, keeping the country in a holding position until her final betrayal is unveiled at the eleventh hour.”
Earlier in the day, James Duddridge became the latest Tory MP to back a motion of no confidence in the PM but there was little sign of opposition to her position on the conference floor where her speech was warmly received.
