Stop Brexit process could be in place within weeks, Jeremy Hunt declares
Speaking after Labour said it was still poised to back a ‘People’s Vote’, despite not pushing for one this week, Mr Hunt said “the wind is in the sails” of referendum backers and they were almost two-thirds of the way there.
He told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show: “We have an opportunity now to leave on March 29 or shortly thereafter.
“It’s very important we grasp that opportunity because there is wind in the sails of people trying to stop Brexit.”
[I quite liked that;)
Following Mr Hunt’s comments, Hard Brexit-backing Tory MP Steve Baker issued a thinly-veiled threat to those pushing for a second referendum.
He said: “The people who would stop Brexit should know just this: what you do, you’ll have do in public now.
“And everyone will know just what you have done.
“Stopping Brexit will be on you, not Brexiteers. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.”
Comment by dizzy: Those opposed to Brexit, including myself, are participating in the democratic process. It is the strength of argument that is defeating Brexit. Making personal threats shows this Brexiteer to be inadequate as an MP.
Maintaining anonymity on this blog costs in the region of £10 a year and it’s due about December. I decided that I couldn’t afford it one year and my name appeared briefly on the domain name registration. I assumed that GCHQ, MI5 or some similar organisation was paying for it. I am very proud of my name – it’s a very good mostly Welsh name although lately I quite like Simples.
11/3/19 Done some research on Steve Baker now. He’s number two.
12/3/19 Simples is a reference to Theresa May’s response when asked essentially what happened to Brexit. It has a deeper meaning and has since been spun as something different
I am reconsidering my endorsement.
16/3/19 The endorsement persists.
