‘What part of LEAVE do you not understand’ – Theresa May blasted for transitional period

Posted on Sep 29 2017 - 3:00am by admin

Claiming there had been no progress whatsoever the gentleman called on the Government to fulfil the will of the British people and get the UK out of Europe.

The audience member said: “What part of leave don’t you understand?

“The British people last year voted to leave, the British people did not vote for the transitional period.”

Confirming that he is against the Tory policy he criticised Theresa May for her Florence speech to the EU.

The Prime Minister committed the UK to a transitional period predicted to cost between £20billion and £40billion.

The speech had been hoped to help kickstart stalled Brexit negotiations between David Davis and Michel Barnier and get trade talks underway.

The audience member continued: “We hear David Davis talking about progress, there has been no progress whatsoever.”

Tory MP Karen Bradley insisted progress had been made during negotiations but was met with laughter when the only example she was able to cling to was EU medical cards.

She said: “I disagree, there has been progress, for example on European medical cards. But we want to see more progress.”

Even veteran host David Dimbleby mocked the statement making a sarcastic comment about the “great” progress made after 15months of talks.

Backing her party’s approach the Culture Secretary called for a cautious approach to leaving.

She said: “I do think we need to be pragmatic about how we leave.

“We do not want to give people two changes, a change when we leave, which we will in March 2019, and a further change when new arrangements come into place.”

Panelist and political commentator Ayesha Hazarika claimed the Government was in an “absolute shambles about Brexit”.

Ms Hazarika said: “Progress has not been made. I would not trust David Davis to negotiate a Happy Meal quite frankly.”

During the programme a woman who voted Remain said it was time for the those in Government who did not vote to Leave to get behind Brexit.

She said: “They should all just get behind it, it’s happened.”
