Jacob Rees-Mogg has said that the proposed Brexit transitional deal was an example of ‘the metropolitan elite rejecting the result of the referendum’.
The conservative MP singled out shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer, who supports the deal, saying: ‘He’s betraying the voters – but also his leader, Jeremy Corbyn, who says we will have to leave the single market’.
‘It’s double infamy’.
These comments were echoed by Dover MP Charlie Elphicke, who said:
‘There is a clear instruction from the British people to end uncontrolled EU immigration and that means leaving the single market in March 2019’.
‘It would be wrong for the Labour party to seek to undermine the referendum decision or seek to kick it into the long grass’.
