“The talks between the Prime Minister and the leaders of France and Germany is humiliating and embarrassing for the United Kingdom.

The problems the Prime Minister is attempting to solve were not created by the decision to leave the European Union, rather the ineffective negotiations by the Prime Minister to implement that decision.

A solution was put forward by the House of Commons on 29th January through the Brady amendment which could have charted a course by which Parliament could have supported a deal. Instead of treating this proposal seriously, the Prime Minister has effectively accepted the backstop and opted not to stand up to Brussels.

Nearly three years after the referendum the UK is today effectively holding out a begging bowl to European leaders.”
