PM's Brexit Statement

Responding to the Prime Minister's statement, Best for Britain CEO Naomi Smith said:

'Boris Johnson said MPs trying to get an extension beyond October 31st were "chopping the legs out from under the UK position".

'The brutal truth is that Johnson, and his cabal of No Deal zealots, are chopping the legs from underneath UK democracy.

'They must be stopped, No Deal must be stopped, Brexit must be stopped – in Johnson's own words, no ifs, no buts.

'Johnson's speech was being drowned out by protesters at the gates of Downing Street – let him be in no doubt that those voices are only going to get louder.'

Also commenting, Best for Britain supporter David Lammy MP said:

“The Prime Minister has made this statement purely because his attempt to bully those Conservative MPs who have been standing up to him has failed. They’ve chosen country over party.

“Tomorrow, MPs from across the House of Commons will get the ball rolling to stop a disastrous no-deal Brexit.

“There’s no mandate for no-deal and Boris Johnson knows this. He will fail.”
