TalkRadio: Brexit deal is a ‘country mile from what people voted for’

Owen Paterson MP has warned that not delivering the Brexit that “people voted for” would result in “shock and disillusion with the whole political establishment”.

Appearing on the breakfast show, the Conservative MP claimed a statement delivered by Theresa May yesterday about the Brexit deal was a “country mile” from what the public wanted.

“The shock and disillusion with the whole political establishment if this is not delivered will be appalling. Really, really damaging. That is a deadly serious threat to the whole of our political processes,” he told Julia Hartley-Brewer.

“It’s a really, really bad deal and I’m absolutely going to vote against it.”

The MP claimed the deal proposed by Ms May was a “complete contravention” of the 2017 Conservative manifesto, in which it was promised the UK would leave the single market and the customs union.
