Murray – Theresa May’s Chequers proposal is dead in the water

Speaking earlier today, President Macron dealt a further blow to the Prime Minister’s Chequers proposal, saying that Brexit “can't come at the expense of the European Union's integrity”.

Responding, Ian Murray MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign said:

“It appears that, with less than two months remaining before the crucial EU council summit, Theresa May’s Chequers proposal is dead in the water.

“It is filled with contradictions and can clearly satisfy neither her own MPs nor our European negotiating partners. The cake-and-eat Brexit that was promised simply can’t be delivered.

“Persisting with the Chequers car crash, and praying for a last-minute change of heart from the EU, is not a credible negotiating strategy. It simply increases the chances of a disastrous no deal Brexit.

“With the Brexit negotiations having hit the buffers, and Parliament completely deadlocked, the only way out of this mess is through a People’s Vote on the final deal.”
