Umunna: British Government Is LYING Over Brexit
Arch-Remoaner, Chukka Umunna, has claimed that the British government is systematically lying to the British people about the position of the Brexit negotiations and the prospects of a good deal.
In remarks made on his LBC talk-show, Mr Umunna said that he was “frustrated” by what the government was telling the British people:
I have been so frustrated by what you have been told about the deal – and what we are likely to get from Brexit.
I was in Brussels on Monday, meeting with senior people at the European Commission and the European Council.
I also met with EU ambassadors who represent countries across the bloc here in London.”
From what they said, we are systematically being misled and lied to by our government about this deal and what the EU will give us.
His trip included a meeting with Michel Brainer, the EU’s chief negotiator for the Brexit talks. Following a meeting with Mr Brainer at the beginning of the month, Nigel Farage presented a similar assessment saying that Mr Brainer had not been made aware by the British government of the ‘key drivers’ of the Brexit vote by the British government.
Clearly, what goes on behind closed doors is radically different to the version of the Brexit negotiations that is officially presented. It is about time surely that we had some much-needed transparency so we can fairly assess what our own government is doing and saying in our name.
