Just over 12 hours after UK’s Theresa May announced that her team of top ministers had agreed to the terms of the Brexit draft agreement, Brexit minister Dominic Raab quits, saying they he not support it.
Here’s Dominic Raab political quote of the day…
“I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election … This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust.”
“No democratic nation has ever signed up to be bound by such an extensive regime, imposed externally without any democratic control over the laws to be applied, nor the ability to decide to exit the arrangement.”
“That arrangement is now also taken as the starting point for negotiating the Future Economic Partnership. If we accept that, it will severely prejudice the second phase of negotiations against the UK.”
