WATCH: “I Didn’t Like That We Recognised The Public Opinion To Come Out!” – Remoaner John Prescott ADMITS He’s Against The People
Former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott has admitted this week on the BBC’s Question Time that he is against the Labour party accepting the referendum result and believes that the party should be against Brexit.
The show, based in Staffordshire, featured panellists Brandon Lewis, John Prescott, Juergen Maier, Camilla Tominey and Ash Sarkar.
Prescott said: “What we did say, and I didn’t like the idea – that basically we recognise the public opinion to come out.”
He continued: “And then we got a lot of trouble for supporting the government when it came to that section 50 and we said that’s what the people have spoken.
“We don’t want to be defying the people though we do have the clear opinion that whatever you negociate, we have certain red lines.
“One of them is that we still want to be trading with the European community, that we want therefore the tarriff business to be controlled – that’s definite for our industy and some conditions about free movement.
“But we cannot give you the full position until the government negociate what the final deal is!”
