Conservatives 'will not be forgiven' for handling of Brexit, says Peter Bone MP

Vote Leave

Thursday, November 8, 2018

Conservative MP, Peter Bone, has claimed his party "will not be forgiven" by the public for its handling of Brexit negotiations.

Mr Bone, who is a member of the Brexit Select Committee, said the Conservatives were "not delivering what the people voted for".

He told Julia Hartley-Brewer: "This is more than two-and-a-half years since the referendum, and we've got this situation where we're not delivering what the people voted for, and as Conservatives we will not be forgiven for that.

 

 

"I do hope, even at this late stage, the Prime Minister will deliver what she has promised in speeches. But what she's promised in speeches doesn't look anything like what we hear is going to be put to Parliament."

Appearing on the breakfast show, the politician claimed that MPs were "completely in the dark", and "relying on media reports" for information about a possible Brexit deal.

"This terrible phase of waiting to be given something so we can react to it, which is a very frustrating process.

"The things that we do know, like the £39 billion we're going to give away, or taking the EU rulebook, or not ending the free movement of people are all pretty disastrous."
