Vince Cable: May’s fudged compromise already proving unworkable

by Steve Beasant on 9 July, 2018

Responding to the unrest within the Cabinet following Friday’s meeting at Chequers, that has seen Brexit Secretary David Davis resign overnight, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said:

“Theresa May’s proposals can hardly be described as a ‘soft Brexit’, given the damage due to be caused to the economy by taking the UK out of the Customs Union and Single Market. But even this is not a tough enough stance against the EU for the Brexit ideologues  who have quit in a huff.

“This fudged compromise is already proving unworkable. With a Government so badly divided, it is fast becoming time to go back to the British people to ask them if they want an exit from this chaotic Conservative Brexit.”
