Proper Brexit could be on the brink of collapse as Tory cabinet ministers desperately lobby Theresa May take what they are describing as a ‘pragmatic approach’. In other words water down, squash, surrender.
Sky Sources: cabinet ministers privately lobbying PM to alter Brexit plan from "ideologically driven" approach to "pragmatic Brexit"
— Sky News Newsdesk (@SkyNewsBreak) June 11, 2017
A senior cabinet source said: “The British public themselves haven’t reached a conclusion on what they want from Brexit.”
That’s funny, because there was quite a big public referendum on Brexit and 52% of people voted to leave the EU whilst over 80% voted for parties that backed quitting the single market and open borders at the General Election.
The source added: “We need to recognise the outcome. People want practical pragmatism with fewer things being ruled out – not an ideologically-driven approach.”
This comes hot off the heels of promotions for dripping wit Remainers both as May’s new Deputy PM and her new Chief of Staff.
This kind of backsliding is going to rightly disgust Brexiteers across the land. It appears as if the battle for Brexit will go on.
