How confident is Peter Bone that Brexit will go ahead as planned in March? Eddie Mair asked him to bet his most valued possession on it.
The government will now have to announce new plans within three days if the Prime Minister’s deal is rejected by MPs next week.
The UK is currently scheduled to leave the EU on March 29th 2019 - whether there is a deal in place or not.
Eddie wanted to gauge how confident one of Parliament's most prominent Brexiteers was it would happen.
“What’s the most important thing in your life?” Eddie asked Mr Bone.
“I’m not going to go into my love life,” the Tory MP replied.
Eddie responded: “No, what I want to ask is would you bet that thing, whatever it is, would you bet it that Brexit will definitely happen on March 29th?”
