Grieve – In complex negotiations, patience is a virtue

Responding to the Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson’s confirmation that the Government will trigger Article 50 next year and that the process may take less than two years, Dominic Grieve MP, commenting for Open Britain, said:

“The Government needs to have a much clearer position by the time they trigger Article 50, including whether they want Britain to keep the Single Market membership, which is so crucial to our economy.

“The process must not be unnecessarily rushed. It’s the quality of the agreement we get that matters, not the speed with which it is agreed. In complex negotiations, patience is a virtue.”
