Thomas – Ministers currently engaged in deciding which breed of Brexit unicorn they prefer

The Cabinet’s Brexit subcommittee has once again failed to reach any agreement on how the UK’s customs arrangements with the EU should function post-Brexit.

Commenting, Gareth Thomas MP, leading supporter of the People's Vote campaign, said:

“The endless process of the Government negotiating with itself rumbles on, as Ministers have once again failed to reach any agreement on post-Brexit customs arrangements.

“Ministers seem to be adopting an approach familiar to anyone who has had to put off doing a difficult chore: ‘I’ll sort it out later, I’ve still got time’. But the clock is ticking.

“The whole process is a farce as the EU has already said that both of the Government’s proposed customs models won’t work: Ministers are currently engaged in a process of deciding which breed of Brexit unicorn they prefer.

“With no clarity whatsoever about what the Government even wants Brexit to look like, we need a People’s Vote on whatever deal we end up with.”
