BREXIT PARTY CHAIRMAN CALLS FOR ‘LEAVE ALLIANCE’ AS TORIES ADMIT BREXIT BLOCKED AGAIN
The Brexit Party Chairman Richard Tice said: ‘The government has finally admitted what The Brexit Party has said all along: The Tories alone are powerless to deliver Brexit on October 31st.
‘This morning, the Chancellor said we “have to accept” Brexit has been blocked again and the EU will “probably offer a three-month extension,” chaining us to Brussels into the New Year.
‘The Tory Party is struggling to get anything past Parliament and the Remain establishment, partly because so many within their own ranks are in the Remain establishment.
‘The Brexit Party has offered to put country before party and work with fellow, committed Brexiteers to secure a proper Brexit.
‘Only a Clean-Break Brexit will fully protect the independence of Britain’s fishing, defence, and trade, and the integrity of our precious Union, which the current Treaty sells out.
‘And the EU’s top Brexit negotiator, Michael Barnier, has now confirmed the current treaty plan will mean at least three years of so-called transition.
‘We will be paying tens of billions a year to be effectively locked in the EU, with no voice, no veto, and no vote.
‘Let’s sack this unrepresentative, zombie parliament squatting in the Palace of Westminster, form an unstoppable Leave alliance, and get a proper, better Brexit done.’
Speaking on BBC Breakfast just after 8am, Sajid Javid said: ‘We have to accept, we won’t be able to leave on October 31st, because Parliament has requested an extension.
‘And although we haven’t heard back from the EU yet, it’s likely, I think we just have to assume that they will agree to Parliament’s request.
‘Not something that we wanted, but they will agree and probably offer a three-month extension.
He added: ‘[The deadline] can’t be met because Parliament has asked for an extension and the EU – although it hasn’t formally responded – everyone expects an extension from them.’
