John Longworth: “This White Paper is a complete capitulation and our Government has become a national embarrassment”

Date: 12 07 2018

Responding to the publication of the Brexit White Paper, John Longworth, Co-Chair of Leave Means Leave said: 
 
“The Prime Minister has completely ignored the concerns raised over the Chequers ‘deal’ last week.
 
“Resignation after resignation, humiliating polls and a damning public indictment yet Theresa May has not listened.    
 
“This White Paper is a complete capitulation and our Government has become a national embarrassment.  
 
“The EU is in an extremely strong negotiating position and we will end up, quite unbelievably, with an even worse deal than that set out in this White Paper.  
 
“The Prime Minister has betrayed 17.4 million voters and it is now a matter for Conservative politicians to determine her fate. 
 
“We should prepare for, and declare, that we will move to a World Trade Deal, while making it clear that our door is still open to a Canada-style free trade arrangement with the EU.”
