Five days to save Brexit: Vote Conservative or there WILL be second referendum, says Davis

4 Jun

Given what we have seen so far, it is highly probable he would give the Scot Nats exactly what they want, which is a second independence referendum with the threat of the breakup of the UK, and the Lib Dems what they want, which is another referendum on Europe.”

Mr Davis said Labour’s plan for Brexit was a “pale shadow” of what his party was offering.

“Labour has about half a dozen policy positions on Brexit,” he said.

“Take migration. We have had them saying they want to maintain free movement and they want to do away with free movement and have immigration controls.

“With this level of incoherence it is unsurprising that their policy is like a pale shadow of ours. It’s trying to copy bits of ours and that doesn’t work.”

Mr Davis, MP for the Yorkshire constituency of Haltemprice and Howden, said the Tories had put forward a “very explicit” plan for leaving the EU.

“We don’t want to fall out with them on the one hand, but on the other hand we want to give ourselves the freedom to make the most of the global market, which is much larger than the European market and already provides nearly 60 per cent of our trade.

“One-and-a-half billion people speak English around the world, it is the language of Shakespeare, it is also the language of science, of medicine, of engineering. It is the language of the internet, of the media and it is the language of international law too.
