It is reported that the Government has agreed to accept the amendments tabled by the Brextremist ERG to the Taxation (Cross-Border Trade) Bill, which is being discussed in the House of Commons today.
Commenting, Gareth Thomas MP, former trade minister and leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“Accepting the ERG amendments means sticking two fingers up to the EU’s negotiators and that Dominic Raab has effectively been replaced as Britain’s chief negotiator by Jacob Rees-Mogg, because he’s the one pulling all the strings and determining Government strategy. The EU27 may remain polite but they can read the signals just as well as the rest of us: the Brextremists are now in charge.
“We have just taken a step closer to the catastrophe of a no deal Brexit being forced on us by a combination of Government paralysis and Parliamentary confusion.
“A People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal remains the best, and the only, way out of the Westminster grid lock.”
