This morning on BBC Breakfast viewers tuned in to presenters Charley’s state and Louise mentioned deliver today’s news with the breaking story as MP David Davis’s resignation as brexit secretary during the business segment journalist Shaun Farrington was discussing the implications his resignation would have on UK businesses joining Shaun was Tim Martin the founder and chairman of the pump change.
Ad Weatherspoon’s who backed the leave campaign when grexit was under voted speaking live from Exeter Tim was asked as his reaction.
To the resignation letter he noted I think that brexit started to go wrong when the Prime Minister offered Brussels 39 million pounds that’s 600 pounds for every single person in the UK without any strings attached that.
Showed desperation the key element she could have controlled is to say we’re not going to pay 200 million pounds a week from the 30th April and we’re also going to scrap the tariffs which every single consumer and chauffeur and business pays in the UK on anything that’s imported from outside the EU and then scrapped the.
Fishing tariffs these are things you can do without agreement the checkers agreements even if David David hadn’t resigned I don’t think would have got us anywhere because it has to be agreed by the EU and how does anyone know they’re going to agree anything it doesn’t create certainty the certainty you get is by making actions.
Yourself in the areas you can control sensible actions that will make the people.
Of the UK better off than they are today Tim added Shaun then asked Tim why he didn’t agree with Michael Gove who has also been a backer of Britain leaving the European Union Tim.
Explained for the reasons I said it’s going wrong.
Michael Gove wasn’t in a position neither was treasom a to deliver what was agreed at Chequers any way they can deliver an elimination of and free fishing grounds and so on so they should do what they can and then negotiate the areas they can control after we don’t need an agreement with the EU the problem with all this is.
That rather than going for brexit what they’re doing is going for a deal with the EU – and that’s a flawed – strategy it comes after MP David Davis resigned from government last night after he sent the Prime.
Minister a letter explaining in great detail his reasons for leaving in his resignation letter David criticized the PM’s brexit plan which was recently agreed by the Cabinet just last Friday saying it would leave Parliament with at best – weak negotiating position however in Teresa Mays reply she said I do not agree with your characterization of the policy we agreed a cabinet on Friday however she said she was sorry.
He was leaving but would like to thank you warmly for everything you have done to shape our departure from the EU junior minister Steve Baker also quits shortly after David and the prime minister is preparing to face MPs and peers later the UK is due to leave the European Union on the 29th of March.
2019 but the two sides have yet.
To agree how trade will work between the UK and the EU afterwards now that David has resigned as brexit Secretary Theresa May must appoint a successor she is also due to publish the brexit white paper which sets out.
