McGovern – Davis’s fantasy Brexit lacks all credibility

David Davis launched his fantasy Brexit proposal today.

Commenting, Alison McGovern MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“David Davis’s fantasy Brexit is no more credible or realistic than every other cake-and-eat-it scheme. Closing your eyes and wishing for a magic solution to the Irish border question does not make it appear.

“The problem with Brexit is not so much Theresa May as the problem with the Prime Minister is Brexit. Leave campaigners promised we would continue to enjoy ‘the exact same benefits’ of being in the EU, while ‘taking back control’. But the Government’s deal shows these promises will be broken – not because the Government won’t keep them - but because they can’t be kept; no one can keep promises that are contradictory.

“The Prime Minister’s deal may well be best Brexit that’s on offer but no matter how you slice and dice it, there is no deal that can fulfil the promises made or match the deal we already have inside the EU. Now we know what Brexit looks like, the public should be given the opportunity to have the final say because, In the end, only the people can sort this out.”
