Sir Ed Davey, who is standing to become the next leader of the Liberal Democrat’s, has said that he will make a “plea” to the Queen to avoid a so-called “no-deal” Brexit.
It comes as the United Kingdom prepares itself for leaving without a so-called deal at the end of October. Boris Johnson is in favour of taking a much harder line with the EU.
Johnson wants to go back to Brussels and demand that they give concessions on key areas of the withdrawal treaty, especially in regard to the Irish backstop arrangement, which sees the EU and UK locked in a permanent customs union, if a free trade agreement cannot be reached.
It is clear that Her Majesty will not be dragged into politics, especially by any politician. The Lib Dem’s are hoping that they’ll sweep up a wrath of Remain support and stop a WTO Brexit from occurring.
