Streeting – Ivan Rogers revealed why Government has made a pig’s ear of Brexit

Commenting on Sir Ivan Rogers’ appearance at the Treasury Select Committee earlier today, Wes Streeting MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“Sir Ivan Rogers, who as Britain’s Ambassador to the EU worked closely with the Government on Brexit, today set out the reasons why they have made such a pig’s ear of it. 

“They are banking on a final deal on trade being agreed by October 2018, when in reality there is almost no chance of an agreement that complex being completed in time. 

“They rushed into triggering Article 50 without a plan or even internal Cabinet agreement over what they wanted. And they are in real confusion over transition.

“It’s clear that the Brexit that was sold to the British people is becoming unachievable, as this process is far more complex than anyone was told.”
