Get Behind The Country! – Brexiteer SLAMS Umunna
Chole Westley, a Vote Leave campaigner from the Taxpayers’ Alliance, tore into Labour’s Chuka Umunna last night on Question Time. Ms Westley said that Britain has done a “fantastic thing” in voting to leave the EU and she insisted that leaving the Customs Union is the only way Britain can regain control of its borders and trade:
“We stay in the customs union, we can’t take back control of our trade.
“It’s just that simple. That’s why we’re leaving the customs union.
“There are huge opportunities to leaving the customs union and to leaving the EU.
“Gosh, we’ve had so much negativity and mean spirit in this and not just from the EU but also politicians here at home.”
She appealed to Mr Umunna to help Britain make this a “great success”;
“This is going to be a fantastic thing for the country.
“And I just think, politicians like you Chuka, you need to get behind the country and help Britain make this a great success.”
However, there was no indication that Mr Ummuna intends to heed the appeal from Ms Westley.
