Guto Bebb – There is nothing patriotic about voting for a deal which makes the country poorer

Commenting on Theresa May’s plea today to MPs to support her Brexit deal, Guto Bebb MP, leading supporter of People’s Vote said:

"Theresa May is wilfully ignoring the fact her Brexit deal has been defeated twice by record margins by MPs. Instead of listening to this, it is now clear she intends to try to grind MPs and the public into submission with yet another vote.

"The Prime Minister talks of patriotism. But there is nothing ‘patriotic’ about voting for a deal which even the Government's own analysis shows will make our country poorer, and which we know will leave us following rules made by others.

"Nor is there anything ‘honourable’ about trying to force a deeply unpopular deal through parliament.

"And it is not a ‘compromise’ to impose a Brexit deal which in no way reflects the promises made in 2016 onto the people of this country without allowing them to have the final say.

"That's why, whatever tricks are played in Westminster over the coming days, and whatever bribes are offered, hundreds of thousands of people will march on Parliament on Saturday demanding it’s only fair to put it to the people."
