EU TALKS CHAOS: Soubry: The “Perfect Solution” Is To Remain In Single Market And Customs Union
Anna Soubry, arch-Remoaner, looked distinctly smug as she told Sky News that the “perfect solution” to the current impasse was for the UK to remain in both the Single Market and the Customs Union.
She also claimed that there is a “majority” in Parliament for this approach and that people were being “held back by ideology”.
The chaos and faff of today has seen a massive Remoaning offensive to try and strong arm the British government into remaining in the Single Market and the Customs Union.
Stephen Timms MP, in a furious exchange with Andrew Rosindell on Sky News, also an MP, claimed that Northern Ireland “must” remain in the customs union to avoid a hard border between it and the Republic.
Mr Rosindell blasted back that this was not true and that there were “other solutions” to this issue and that to remain in the Customs Union was to effectively remain in the EU.
You do get the feeling that the next few days will be decisive in determining the kind of Brexit that the government delivers.
