Lib Dems: Penny has dropped with Hunt

by Steve Beasant on 11 January, 2019

Responding to Jeremy Hunt’s admission this morning that Parliament could block a no-deal Brexit while voting down the deal could mean the UK remaining in the EU, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said:

“It would seem the penny has finally dropped within the Government, at least with Jeremy Hunt. Be in no doubt, a chaotic no-deal Brexit is a choice and it is in the gift of the Government to prevent it.

“In the interests of people’s livelihoods, the Prime Minister must end the uncertainty and rule out a no-deal now. If not, Liberal Democrats will take every step possible within Parliament to force her.

“With concern palpable among Tory ranks that Brexit can be stopped, it is clear Liberal Democrats are closer than ever to securing a People’s Vote. It is time MPs, particularly the Labour leadership, explored their conscience and supported that growing campaign.”
