TORY MP Michael Fabricant slapped down a Labour Remoaner for wanting to “surrender everything” in negotiations with the European Union during a tetchy Brexit clash. The former vice chair of the Conservative party slammed Mary Creagh
saying she was arguing the same point for a “good Brexit deal” for the UK as her previous arguments for joining the euro. Discussing UK chemical businesses on
Victoria Derbyshire, on the BBC, Ms Creagh said: “I want to see a good deal for British jobs, British manufacturers and the British economy.” But she was taken to
task by Mr Fabricant who criticised her approach to negotiations. He said: “But weren’t you arguing that we should join the euro because you were using exactly the same argument about that. “You’d surrender everything. It’s a negotiation and
negotiation doesn’t mean saying I agree to everything you want.” Brexit supporting inventor Sir James Dyson has claimed it is time for the UK to walk away from the
European Union without an agreement. Sir James Dyson has said that “the time has come” for the United Kingdom to walk away from the EU without a Brexit deal.
The sixth round of Brexit talks concluded on Friday with David Davis and Michel Barnier announcing that negotiations were still in the first phase of talks.
Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, the founder of the Dyson company, claimed the EU was asking for too much in negotiations. He said: “I don’t think it is the Government’s fault, I think the problem is the people we are negotiating with.”
