Starmer Tells Davis: ‘Let Me Take Over Brexit Negotiations’


Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer (pictured above) has called on David Davis to stand aside and to allow himself and the Labour team to ‘take over’ the Brexit negotiations. Mr. Starmer told the Labour Conference in Brighton yesterday that his party were the only ‘adults in the room’ capable of breaking the deadlock in the negotiations and that the only answer to the current impasse was for Davis to stand aside and allow Labour to take over future discussions.

The Labour frontbencher slapped down the Brexit department’s negotiating team saying he would “take charge” of the Brexit talks with Brussels.

Speaking at the Labour party conference in Brighton, Sir Keir said: “LabourĀ are now the grown-ups in the room. We stand ready to take charge of these negotiations, not acting for narrow political gains but in the national interest.

“No rash ideological headline preventing a sensible deal, no fantastical blue-sky proposals: a pragmatic approach.”

The Holborn and St Pancras MP accused the UK Government of “incompetence”, claiming thatĀ the Tories suffered from “post-imperial delusions” for the future of Brexit Britain.

He said on Sky News: “The way Tories are handling Brexit tells us a lot about their competence, or perhaps I should say incompetence, but it also tells you about their character.

“About their dogmatic disregard of the national interest, about their sheer sense of entitlement, about their post-imperial delusions.”

The Labour politician repeatedly took a dig at the Tory party during his 20 minutes speech in Brighton.

He said the Government was “too weak to govern” and called for a “transformative Labour executive to break the impasse on the Brexit negotiations” currently gripping the country.

The comments come as Brexit secretary David Davis resumes talks in Brussels with EU negotiator Michel Barnier today.

The meeting will give the European delegation the opportunity to respond to Prime Minister Theresa May‘s Florence speech in which she offered to continue paying into the EU budget for a two-year transition period after the UK leaves in 2019.

Mr Davis is expected to stay overnight in Brussels to ensure progress is made towards a discussion on a future trade deal.

    I notice Harmer Starmer is spouting ‘the only adults in the room’ crap, pinched from Sir Wince Babel who was convinced that HE and his party were the the only ‘grown-ups’ and ‘political adults’ in the room a few days ago. Shut up, Remoaners: with your dumb cries of ‘It’s not Fair!’ you’re about as grown-up as Kevin the Teenager in Harry Enfield’s skits.
