MPs are playing a game of deceit in Brexit 'debate'

Breaking News

Secretary of State for International Trade Liam Fox has warned that there is a risk MPs could "steal Brexit from the British people" if Theresa May's proposed 'deal' is rejected.

Mr Fox told the international trade committee that he backed Theresa May's plan, claiming that he wanted to deliver on the result of the 2016 referendum.

UKIP Leader Gerard Batten said,

"For Mr Fox to claim that Mrs May's so-called deal delivers on the result of the Brexit referendum indicates that he either has no idea what is contained in the Withdrawal Agreement or that he has sold out Brexit for his future political career. Mr Fox is now a Leaver in name only.

"The political establishment is presenting the people with a Hobson's Choice - either accept the 'not really leaving the EU deal', or simply stop Brexit. 

"The Conservative Party is institutionally Europhile and UKIP stands alone as the only party committed to the real Brexit that 17.4 million people voted for on June 23rd, 2016."
