A no-deal Brexit would be catastrophic for Britain, according to Dominic Grieve MP.

Speaking to talkRADIO's Julia Hartley-Brewer, the former Attorney General said he would "not allow" the UK to leave the European Union without a deal, and would do "everything possible" to achieve his goal.

 

 

"A no-deal Brexit would be catastrophic for our country. I must do everything possible to stop it happening," he said.

"Brexit has damaged trust in our democracy. It's a dreadful process and one that is dragging this country to a third-rate future. The third-rate future is going to be infinitely more damaging than continuing to have a debate at the moment about the best terms of exit."

 

'Never adhered to no-deal is better than a bad deal'

Julia said Mr Grieve, the Conservative MP for Beaconsfield, stood on a manifesto that stated "no-deal is better than a bad deal".

"I have never adhered to no-deal being better than a bad deal," he argued.

"I have a duty as an MP to make sure my constituents quality of life is protected so far as I can. What people wish to do on the European consequence is a matter for their own politicians, but I will not allow a no-deal Brexit to take place."
