West Midlands MEP, Bill Etheridge, had a strong message for those Tory MPs about to back the Prime Minister’s deal with the EU.
The MEP is disgusted with the government as they went into the last election, as did the opposition, clearly stating that their position was to respect Brexit.
Both Labour and Tory manifestos professed to support leaving both the Customs Union and Single Market, yet Mr Etheridge says the current deal would achieve neither.
Bill Etheridge, also Libertarian Party UK Deputy Chairman, said “Certain Tory MPs have never wanted to leave and are only voting for Mrs May’s deal as it doesn’t involve leaving.
“It is the classic BRINO – Brexit In Name Only – designed to hoodwink the electorate into thinking the establishment are carrying out their wishes.
“Well, I have news for them. The plan isn’t working, and people have seen through this cynical ploy and they needn’t think of starting the whole process again.
“A second referendum would be no more than an attempt to grind down the will of the people.
“It’s exponents simply wish to keep on playing until they win. In other words, to cheat democracy. We should Leave the EU on March the 29th on WTO terms – just as 17.4m people voted for.”
