Murray – Tusk’s visit shows the Government’s have your cake and eat it strategy has failed

Commenting on Theresa May’s meeting with Donald Tusk today, Ian Murray MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“We can only hope that Donald Tusk is right when he says that the Government’s failed strategy of trying to have its cake and eat it in the Brexit talks is over.

“It’s absolutely clear that we can’t have the exact same benefits as the Single Market and the Customs Union while leaving them, as Ministers have repeatedly promised.

“It’s time for some realism and grown-up government, which means concrete proposals from Theresa May and David Davis in this week's negotiations that will actually move them forward.”
