Jacob Rees-Mogg has responded to claims by David Davis’ former aide that Brexit would ‘make Black Wednesday look like a picnic’, saying:
‘Most people in the higher levels of the party, and across the Conservative party and the nation have accepted the democratic result of the referendum a year ago’.
‘Opinion polls show that about 70% of people just want Brexit to be delivered, however they voted a year ago’.
‘Most people accept democracy’.
These comments come after former Daily Mail political editor, and David Davis’ chief of staff, James Chapman, called for the formation of a new political party called the Democrats, to oppose Brexit.
Speaking to BBC radio, Mr. Chapman said:
‘There are times in our national life when you have to put your nation before your country and what the ‘hard’ Brexit plan that Mrs May is pursuing, is going to take our economy off a cliff’.
