Key Remainers in cabinet are now flocking to Boris Johnson’s idea of a no-deal Brexit. It comes as Boris has warned EU leaders’ that he is prepared to walk away without a deal, if they do not concede on key areas, such as the Irish backstop.
Theresa May and her allies are mostly those who Back the United Kingdom staying in the European Union. Mrs May could not secure her vision for Brexit, and many have accused her ‘withdrawal treaty’ as being some sort of “surrender document”, an embarrassing rebuttal to a withdrawal surrender treaty that her remain civil service put together over two years.
Amber Rudd, a keen Remainer, and current Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, has now revealed to a radio station that she will back a no deal Brexit if required to do so. It comes as the Boris Johnson Warned that anyone who wants to be in his cabinet must be open to the idea of a No Deal Brexit.
Jeremy Hunt, a remainer, has also suggested that he is prepared to walk away without a deal but with a “heavy heart”. Hunt is clearly a remainer, and already suggested before that he won’t walk away without a deal – pretty much nullifying the UK’s negotiations. If we declare we won’t walk, then what’s our strong hand?
