Grayling: Leave voters would feel cheated if BREXIT is not delivered

Created on: 12th January 2019

Ahead of Tuesday’s crunch vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal, the Transport Secretary said putting a stop to the split may end centuries of "moderate" politics in Britain. Urging Conservative colleagues to get behind the Prime Minister’s unpopular deal, he warned millions of Leave voters would feel “cheated” if Brexit is not delivered. His comments came just hours before pro-Brexit protestors and anti-Brexit demonstrators clashed in central London.

However, the issue is that if Parliament adopt the PM`s deal, we will be looked into the EU forever. 

Mr Grayling, who campaigned for Brexit, told the Daily Mail: "People have to think long and hard about how they are going to vote. This is too important for political game-playing and I urge Conservative MPs who back Brexit and others to back the deal.

"If not, we risk a break with the British tradition of moderate, mainstream politics that goes back to the Restoration in 1660.

"MPs need to remember that Britain, its people and its traditions are the mother of Parliaments. We ignore that and the will of the people at our peril."

Mrs May’s deal is widely expected to suffer a heavy defeat when it comes before the Commons next week prompting intense speculation over what will happen next. 

Most leaver voters are happy with a no deal BREXIT as it will mean that we can trade with WTO rules, as we do with other Countries and not be governed by Brussels.

If on the other hand we get locked into Theresa Mays deal, we will see the UKIP gaining ground, along with the far right and getting MP`s elected next election. This will be as a result of the 17.4 million people who voted to leave the EU feeling totally let down and angry at this Governments handling of BREXIT.
