Pro-Brexit MPs have put in a number of amendments to the government’s Trade Bill in a bid to kill off Theresa May’s EU plan.
The Sun report that the amendments include:
- UK only agreeing to collect taxes on behalf of the EU if the EU reciprocates.
- Commitment to no border down the Irish sea.
- Guarantee a separate VAT regime to the EU.
- Forcing government to draw up primary legislation to remain in the Customs Union.
Jacob Rees-Mogg is quoted as saying: “Unfortunately Chequers was a breakdown in trust. Brexit meant Brexit, but now it appears Brexit means remaining subject to European laws.
“I believe this will help the government stick to the promises it made.”
Good to see that some Brexiteers are fighting the Chequers proposal. It simply isn’t Brexit. Question is, are they willing to go further and seek a new Prime Minister?
