Jacob Rees-Mogg declared himself in whole agreement with Michel Barnier – that Theresa May’s Brexit plan just isn’t going to fly.
The leading Brexiteer MP, who opposes?May’s so-called Chequers proposals that you should follow a “common rule book” with the EU on trade plus the regulation of goods,?met the EU’s chief negotiator in Brussels Monday alongside individuals of the British House of Commons’ committee on exiting the EU.
Barnier has expressed opposition to May’s Chequers proposals, stating by allowing the U.K. to “pick pieces” with the single market, this deal “would become the end of this single market along with the European project.”
“Mr. Barnier is that the common rule book and customs proposals submitted at Chequers do not work,” Rees-Mogg told POLITICO. “I concur with him.”
Rees-Mogg and allies if you want a more distant relationship aided by the EU, akin to the bloc’s free-trade agreement with Canada.
