Richard Tice: responding to the Prime Minister’s speech at the CBI and speculation of a ‘transitional Brexit’

Date: 21 11 2016

Responding to the Prime Minister’s speech at the CBI and speculation of a ‘transitional Brexit’, Richard Tice, Co-Chair of Leave Means Leave said:

“The Prime Minister made a number of positive points in her speech to the CBI about a post-Brexit Britain while rightly not giving away her negotiating hand.

“Businesses want certainty as soon as possible, which is why Britain must leave the EU within a maximum period of two years after triggering Article 50 – no EU deal is better than a bad deal – and leaving the Single Market and Customs Union as soon as possible are key to enabling the UK to take the opportunities provided by Brexit.

“A transitional deal will fuel more uncertainty and leave Britain in limbo.

“British voters have made it clear that they want to leave the EU and the Government must deliver on this in full and at the soonest opportunity – two years after triggering Article 50, or sooner if the EU fails to negotiate.”
