Streeting – Marr interview shows May is in office but not in power

Commenting on Theresa May’s interview today on the Andrew Marr Show, Wes Streeting MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“Theresa May might be the Prime Minister, but she is being held hostage by Boris Johnson and the other hard Brexiters in Cabinet.

“She can’t even be honest about how her Brexit transitional period will work for fear of crossing the Foreign Secretary’s red lines. 

“The Prime Minister is in office but not in power. Her weakness increases the likelihood of a bad Brexit deal that will damage our economy and put jobs at risk.”
