Rees-Mogg’s ‘Brexit Plan B’ falls apart – because it WON’T WORK

The incompetence is hilarious – and some Tories thought Jacob Rees-Mogg could be ‘prime minister’ material!

Look at this:

Conservative Eurosceptics are on the back foot after their plan to publish a detailed blueprint for the UK’s relationship with the EU fell apart.

Tory Eurosceptics last week circulated a 140-page draft Brexit plan, which was meant to prove to Mrs May that they had a fully worked-up alternative blueprint, rooted in a trade deal similar to the one signed between Canada and the EU in 2016.

But Jacob Rees-Mogg, head of the pro-Brexit European Research Group, which led the work on the plan and counts as many as 80 Eurosceptic Conservative MPs among its members, said on Monday that the full document would not be published.

“The truth is that we reconsidered,” he said.

The truth is that he realised his plan wouldn’t work.

Now his European Research Group party-within-a-party will be reduced to bitching about individual issues.

The collapse of this plan will have no bearing on Theresa May’s ‘Chequers’ plan which has already fallen apart, having failed to find favour with Conservative backbenchers.

We should not be surprised at these developments.

All Conservative efforts with regard to Brexit are just attempts to play for time.

They intend to wait until the very last possible moment, and then make a deal that forces the very worst possible conditions on the working people of the UK.

    There is only one type of Brexit and that’s fully out or like Norway or Canada and that’s it

    if it good fully out that’s fine if its bad then a general election it couldn’t be more simple if you tried

  2. Pat Sheehan

    Such incomprehensible, monumental incompetence and folly designed, manufactured, implemented and ‘managed’ meticulously by the ‘Tory Party’ and their acolytes can only logically be a ‘cunning plan’ to utterly destroy themselves as a political force from the inside out, forever, for all eternity for the selfless, ultimate benefit of the UK, for Europe, the world and the future of all human kind. Or have I missed something?
