Lucas - May ”making decisions in personal, not national, interest”

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."
