Here’s an exclusive provided to ANM by Justin Shash from the esteemed BRUGES GROUP.
Justin tells us that he has just come out of a meeting at the House of Commons with Brexiteer Conservative MP Owen Paterson.
Mr Paterson had been in the chamber where he had been questioning the Brexit secretary, Dominic Raab on the just released Chequers Proposal.
Justin says Paterson was incandescent with rage, physically shaking with anger. He gave a brief statement, which he was happy to have quoted here:
“This is much worse than we thought. We have been lied to. This document breaks Manifesto commitments. It’s really, really bad. We will not be able to vote to support any of this. This has to be stopped. The anger around this place is shocking right now. We voted to escape EU regulations under EU Withdrawal Act just a few weeks ago. This Proposal says we put all that back in, and it cannot be amended. Ever. Brexiteers aren’t stupid; they know they are being shafted if this Proposal goes through. I will do everything in my power to stop it.”
AltNewsMedia understands that Mr Paterson’s views are reflected by many other MPs and the conflict with the Prime Minister is only starting.
