John Mann MP: 'I'm one of the few MPs not umm-ing and err-ing over Brexit'


Monday, January 28, 2019

Labour MP John Mann has urged fellow politicians to vote in favour of Theresa May's 'Plan B' Brexit deal, claiming it is "as good a deal as we can get".

Mr Mann, who is vice chair of the treasury sub-committee, said it was time to "just get on" with Brexit, and warned there would be "uproar" if the UK did not leave the EU on March 29.



"I'm one of the few who's neither umm-ing nor err-ing and just getting on with it, instead of trying to put all this parliamentary procedure in the way," he told talkRADIO's Julia Hartley-Brewer.

"I just want us to get on with it and I think that's increasingly the mood of the country."

The MP for Bassetlaw has been accused of "breaking ranks" for announcing his support for the Prime Minister's deal.

"People are telling me they'd like us to leave. How we leave they're quite happy to leave the detail to parliamentarians, they just want to leave," Mr Mann added.

"Let Parliament get onto other things like the NHS, which we ought to be spending our time doing now."
