With just weeks to go until a deal must be struck, the Prime Minister cannot keep ignoring reality – Starmer

Keir Starmer MP, Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, responding to the head of the European Council, Donald Tusk, saying that Theresa May’s Chequers deal “will not work”, said:

“It has been clear for weeks that Theresa May’s Chequers’ proposals cannot deliver the comprehensive plan we need to protect jobs, the economy and avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland.

“With just weeks to go until a deal must be struck, the Prime Minister cannot keep ignoring this reality. She needs to urgently drop her reckless red lines and put forward a credible plan for Brexit.”
