William Hague has backed Philip Hammond’s plan for a Brexit transitional deal, otherwise Britian could be on course for the ‘greatest economic, diplomatic and constitutional muddle in the modern history of the UK, with unknowable consequences for the country, the government and the Brexit project itself’.
Lord Hague praised the chancellor further, saying:
‘He has evidently been trying to persuade his cabinet colleagues that we should be seeking to stay in the EU single market and customs union during a transition and ‘implementation’ phase lasting to 2022, followed by a free trade deal with our former partners after that’.
‘This is seen by longstanding advocates of leaving as a ‘soft’ position or a climbdown’.
‘But in reality it is a plan to rescue Brexit from an approaching disaster’.
