Theresa May’s hard line on Customs Union shows extreme Brexiters are now in control – Tom Brake

by Steve Beasant on 5 February, 2018

Commenting on Theresa May’s insistence that the UK will leave the Customs Union after Brexit, Tom Brake, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson, said:

“The idea that UK will not be in the, or any, Customs Union, confirms that the crazed, extreme Brexiters are now in control of the Government.

“The Tories’ increasing obsession with putting two fingers up to all things European will only ensure maximum damage is done to our country in the long term.

“Theresa May’s failure to stand up to the ideological Brexiter wing in her party is reckless and dangerous. She risks derailing our future in an attempt to silence her backbench extremists.

“As Theresa May’s vision for Britain becomes bleaker the people must be given a chance to exit from Brexit.”
