Cabinet Brexiteer Andrea Leadsom has once again reiterated that the UK will leave the European Union on 209th March 2019, deal or No Deal.
In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, she has again made clear: “The legal default position is that if there isn’t a deal then the UK leaves the EU in March 2019 without a deal.”
It comes after a petition in favour of a No Deal Brexit surges towards 300,000 signatures, showing clear public support for a clean break with the EU that allows the UK to take back full control and autonomy.
Leadsom also responded to moves by Remainer MPs to block the UK leaving with No Deal, saying: “Parliament can always of course express a view, but in order to avoid a No Deal Brexit, Parliament does need to vote for a deal.”
And of the back of news that the government are finally ramping up for No Deal, Leadsom explains: “The government will have to, as a competent government, continue to prepare for all eventualities. That is government policy.”
The country voted for Brexit and the will of the people must be implemented, as promised. Deal or No Deal, the UK must leave the EU in March next year. Bring it on!
