PMQs: Tory Brexiteers Ramp Up The Pressure On Theresa May
« on: December 06, 2017, 06:42:05 PM »
Brexiteer Tory MPs increased the pressure on Theresa May today to stick to her “red lines” ahead of crunch talks with Brussels.
In a show of strength from Brexit-backing Tories, three backbenchers urged May to cut ties with the EU so the UK could regain control of its trade and migrant policies.

The calls came a day after Brexit Secretary David Davis suggested some sectors of the economy could be given a special deal after the UK has left the EU in order to maintain a soft border in Northern Ireland. 

Such an arrangement could see some regulatory alignment with the EU – meaning the UK would effectively still be bound by rules from Brussels.
In Prime Minister’s Questions this afternoon, Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg urged Theresa May to stick to her guns as she tries to negotiate a breakthrough in the talks before next week’s EU summit.
