Gerard Batten SLAMS Theresa May’s Brexit Speech “Could And Must Do Better”
Theresa May has now delivered her latest big Brexit speech. Gerard Batten MEP has turned all his guns on a speech that is clearly laying the foundations for a so-called ‘Soft Brexit’.
Having listened to Mrs May’s 5 tests they are all just aspirational waffle, but waffle nonetheless. She has had have been 19 months since the referendum to come up with some serious statements of intent, but all she seems to have achieved is half a page of platitudes.
He continued that it is “clear that she isn’t actually a committed Leaver with all her talk of regulatory alignment and continued membership of a slew of EU agencies and organisations.”
It is perhaps in many ways all we need to say that the speech won this glowing tribute from the pages of the New Statesman which called it her best speech since she “campaigned to Remain”. Brexit has never been in more danger than now with a half-hearted Prime Minister and an opposition openly committed to reducing Britain to vassal state status.
