Last week, MP Sam Gyimah became the 10th member of Government to resign over the Brexit.
Despite backing the Remain camp, Mr Gyimah was an early supporter of the Prime Minster and her Brexit efforts. However, he has since slammed her deal, stating that it sets up the country for failure.
He argued that the UK’s interests “will be repeatedly and permanently hammered by the EU for many years to come”, adding that “Britain will end up worse off, transformed from rule makers into rule takers”, and “neither Leave nor Remain voters will be pleased with a deal that leaves us poorer, less secure and weaker in the pursuit of our national interests”. Gyimah, who is the former Universities and Minister, intends to vote against Theresa May’s deal, calling it “naïve”.
His comments follow damning reports from the Treasury which – despite scepticism from some Conservatives – confirm that the UK will be poorer economically under any form of Brexit. Similarly, the Bank of England revealed its own warnings that a no-deal Brexit could trigger a worse recession than the financial crisis; forecasting a plummeting of house prices, a fall in the pound, and a collapse in growth by 8%.
Discussing whether Theresa May will eventually get her deal approved by Parliament, listener Matt messaged into Benji Hyer’s Sunday radio show to say that he believes that enough is enough, and regardless of where people stand on the issue, it’s time to just get the Brexit deal passed.
