Anne Main condemns people for rejecting the new Brexit deal before considering it

17th October 2019

Following the announcement of the Prime Minister’s new Brexit deal with the EU, Anne Main condemns people for rejecting it before they can possibly have had a chance to read the detail.

Does my right hon. Friend share my surprise that so many people are already commenting on the deal in the media and indeed rejecting it out of hand, without giving it the thoughtful consideration that the 33 million people who engaged in the biggest democratic process ever would expect us to give to it? We should listen to this new deal, and actually take a thoughtful approach—not a tribal, but a thoughtful approach—to whether it has our support.

Absolutely. My hon. Friend is completely right that we want to respect democracy.
