Johnson's Deal is "No Deal"

November 21, 2019 2:30 PM

Just because Boris Johnson has agreed a deal
with the EU does not mean that it is a good
deal. The Johnson Brexit deal is in reality no
deal in disguise, just postponed until the end of
2020. It includes none of the things that the
Leave side promised to voters in the run up to
the 2016 referendum.
Parliamentary candidate David Watts said: "Boris
Johnson has no mandate for the deal that he tried to
ram through parliament. It does not respect the will
of those who voted to leave any more than it does
those who voted to remain. If Johnson thinks that
the public support this deal then why won't he hold
a Peoples Vote on it?"
David added: "The Governments own figures say
that the East Midlands will be hard hit by leaving
the EU, with our economy shrinking by 5.5%. I
don't want people here to be poorer so I want to
remain.
No MP should ever knowingly vote to make
their constituents worse off."
