Responding to news that Olly Robins has taken over Brexit negotiations from DExEU, Richard Tice, Co-Chair of Leave Means Leave said:
“This announcement completely undermines the role of DExEU and the new Brexit Secretary.
“The Prime Minister’s pro-Brussels civil servant Olly Robbins has been trying to seize control of negotiations for months and he has finally succeeded.
“This is absolutely devastating news to the 17.4 million people that voted to leave the EU as we now look set for Brexit In Name Only.
“The Prime Minister has made yet another catastrophic error and has lost the trust of majority of the British people. Chequers does not mean Brexit.”
