It is being reported tonight (Sunday) that the Prime Minister is ruling out Britain remaining in the Customs Union so as to avoid a confrontation with the most extreme Brexiters in her Cabinet this week.
Commenting, Caroline Lucas MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:
“It is increasingly clear Theresa May is not making decisions about Brexit in the national interest but in the interest of her remaining in her own job.
"Leaving the Customs Union means a hard border in Ireland and would be devastating for British businesses.
“To do this purely for personal political survival would only serve to emphasise how weak Mrs May has become."
