Turley – Even Raab says this deal isn’t as good as the one we’ve already got

Responding to former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab’s comment on Radio 4 Today that he would prefer to stay in the EU than accept this Brexit deal, Anna Turley Labour MP for Redcar and leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign said:

“Even Dominic Raab, the guy who negotiated this half-baked deal admits it isn’t as good as the one we’ve already got - inside the EU. Every MP, from whichever side they stand on Brexit must now ask themselves the same question about a deal which is a million miles from what was promised. And, if they can’t look constituents in the eye and say it is better than staying in the EU, they must do what is right for the country: vote against this withdrawal agreement and hand the final decision back to the British public through a People’s Vote.”
