MPs Trying To Stop A No Deal Are Opposed To Brexit: Tory Eurosceptic
22 January 2019, 17:08
Any MP attempting to remove a no-deal as an option are simply opposed to Brexit, a Conservative Eurosceptic has told LBC.
Andrew Bridgen used a car showroom analogy as he warned against the idea on Tuesday afternoon.
It’s as MPs prepare to vote on a number of Brexit amendments next week - with some hoping to rule out a no-deal exit.
Mr Bridgen, MP for North West Leicestershire, however, said it would be a bad move.
“Anyone who proposes taking no deal off the table either doesn't want to leave the European Union or has never done a negotiation in their life,” he told Shelagh Fogarty.
“It's rather like locking yourself in the showroom with the car salesman saying 'I cannot leave the showroom without buying a car’.
“What sort of deal do you think you're going to get and what sort of car do you think you're going to get?”
