Jacob Rees-Mogg MP has again claimed that civil servants are “fiddling the figures” to portray his favoured option of a hard Brexit in a bad light.
Commenting, Wes Streeting MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:
“The Brextremists have a clear agenda: they want the hardest Brexit possible.
“The reality is that the Brexit the Prime Minister promised us, with the 'exact same benefits' as EU membership, is undeliverable and so she is unable to answer Jacob Rees-Mogg back with honesty when he promotes his ludicrous conspiracy theories.
“Her Government is floundering and extreme hard Brexiters in her Cabinet and on her backbenches are increasingly calling the shots. As they set the terms for where we are heading it is right that we retain the option for the public to reject the destructive Brexit that is being pursued.”
