Former Brexit Secretary David Davis has urged the government to accelerate preparations for a World Trade, No Deal Brexit and insisted that “it is not something to be afraid of”.
With Theresa May’s unpopular capitulation plan taking a battering and likely to be voted down by MPs, Davis today uses a hit in the Sunday Times to write: “It’s time we accelerated our preparations to leave the European Union without a deal.”
He makes clear that: “If it happens, it isn’t the doomsday scenario some are trying to paint. In fact, it may well be the opportunity to reset our Brexit strategy to give leadership and vision for a better future.”
And whereas May has gone totally silent on ‘No Deal is better than a bad deal, Brexiteer Davis says: “Leaving on World Trade Organisation (WTO) terms is not as good as a free trade agreement, but it is not something to be afraid of.”
Speaking of his first hand experience in government, he also reveals that: “A great deal of work has been done to prepare for the WTO outcome.
“This work was reasonably on track until March, when the Treasury and No 10 between them blocked publication of the details necessary to make further progress, for fear of ‘damaging business confidence’.”
And following up on Twitter, he makes clear that: “We need to put an end to dodgy dossiers and scare stories.
“As I say in today’s Sunday Times, it’s time to seize this opportunity and grasp the fabulous future that the United Kingdom is offered.”

Instead of more Project Fear garbage, the government must prepare the country to walk away from the EU on 29th March 2019, saving the £39 billion Brexit bill in the process.
No Deal is better than a bad EU deal! Agree? Support Westmonster.
