Labour MP for Vauxhall Kate Hoey has criticised Labour’s plan to stay in the single market during a post-Brexit transitional phase, saying:
‘It is very worrying to those of us that want to support the view of the British public, which was overwhelmingly to vote to leave’.
‘This is moving towards a kind of mushy blancmange, which is really not in the interests of this country’.
‘We did very well in the last general election by winning back some of those people who left Labour disillusioned, and went to Ukip’.
‘Many of those people will be feeling ‘hang on, we voted for Labour because we thought they were serious about Brexit, that they wanted to make a success of it’.
‘Now we look like we’re not going to do that’.
‘We could lose those voters, and there could be a revived UKIP’.
