A Brexit minimart has popped up on Peckham High Street selling food such as “Conman’s mustard”, “Brexit tomato botchup” and “save our bacon”.

Costuppers, which describes itself as the “Home of the worst deals”, also sells “large porky pies”, chlorinated chicken and “I can’t believe the price of this butter”.

The shop was set up by the campaign group People’s Vote to raise awareness around the Not Buying It campaign, which calls on people to write to their MP before they vote on a final deal with the European Union.

 

'Deliver for the UK'

In October this year, over half a million people joined a march in London calling for a second EU referendum.

On Thursday, Theresa May told press outside of Downing Street that a draft political declaration outlining the UK's future relationship with the EU had been agreed, following a meeting with European Commission President Jean Claude-Juncker on Wednesday night. 

"I had a good, detailed discussion with President Juncker where I set out what was needed in that political delcaration to deliver for the UK," she said.

"We tasked our negotiating teams to continue working overnight and as a result the text of that declaration has been agreed between the EU and the UK."

The political declaration will be combined the withdrawal agreement to form the UK's Brexit deal. 

The Prime Minister announced the Cabinet had approved her draft EU Withdrawal Agreement, last week.
