Jacob Rees-Mogg MP has slammed Theresa May calling upon her to Govern the nation or step down as Prime Minister for someone who is prepared to deliver Brexit for the nation.
Mr Rees-Mogg also warned the disarray Mays Brexit deal has brought, only serve to increase the chances of Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister.
“What has two years of Theresa May doing Brexit amounted to? An undeliverable deal parliament would roundly
reject,if the Prime Minister has the gumption to allow it to go before the House of Commons.
This is not governing, it risks putting Jeremy Corbyn into government by failing to deliver Brexit. We cannot continue like this.
The Prime Minister must either govern or quit.”Jacob Rees-Mogg MP
Mrs May dropped a bombshell this afternoon when she decided not to go ahead with the vote on her Brexit deal that was destined not to make it through the House of Commons, when Mrs May addressed the Members of Parliament she recognised the vote would have have ended in a certain defeat for the Government.
The British Prime Minister said she was calling off the vote
“would be rejected by a significant margin”.
“IT GIVES US CONTROL OF OUR BORDERS, OUR MONEY AND OUR LAWS. IT PROTECTS JOBS, SECURITY AND OUR UNION. IT IS THE RIGHT DEAL FOR BRITAIN,
I AM DETERMINED TO DO ALL I CAN TO SECURE THE REASSURANCES THIS HOUSE REQUIRES, TO GET THIS DEAL OVER THE LINE AND DELIVER FOR THE BRITISH PEOPLE.”
Prime Minister May.
She told MPs she would attempt to secure further “reassurances” from the European Union on the Irish backstop in an attempt to get the DUP on side .
However, the DUP’s Westminster leader Nigel Dodds said the Prime Minister’s reassurance is “simply is not credible” and the Government was in “an impossible position” without changes to the backstop.
“The Prime Minister says she is listening but she talks about reassurances and assurances – does she not get it by now that the Withdrawal Agreement legally binding text is unacceptable to this House?
She cannot pretend
goingon defending the deal when she knows that if the vote had taken place tomorrow it would have been overwhelmingly defeated.
So please, Prime Minister, really do start listening and come back with changes to the Withdrawal Agreement or it will be voted down.”
