Hammond has now teamed up with the Hard Brexiters

by Steve Beasant on 14 August, 2017

Philip Hammond and Liam Fox’s latest ‘show of unity’ over Brexit shows that the Chancellor is now just as much of a hard Brexiter as Dr Fox.

Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Vince Cable

Over the summer, we heard that Philip Hammond was courageously fighting off the more extreme Brexiteers. Supposedly he wasย looking for a compromise to keep Britain within the customs union and single market as long as possible.

The rebellion didn’t last very long. ย He has now teamed up with one of the more extreme and ideological supporters of a โ€˜Hard Brexit.

It is now painfully clear who calls the shots in the Cabinet; it isnt’ the Chancellor.
