Brexiteers were enraged today following a deal that many see as the UK leaving in name only and questioned whether the UK would ever depart the EU as voted for in last year’s historic referendum.
Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage led the barrage of anger telling the BBC that the estimated bill was “way more than we need to pay” and that he was furious the European Court of Justice (ECJ) would continue to have a role for up to eight years. “The whole thing is humiliating. We have collapsed at every level!”
Twitter was in overdrive following the reported deal with a general feeling of despair including a suggestion that being a remain campaigner, Theresa May’s heart was never going to be in the place to execute the will of the electorate: “The only way to stop May’s traitorous Brexit deal is a leadership challenge. Her deal effectively overturns the Brexit vote. It was her plan from the very beginning to undermine Brexit and we must get rid of her. Corbyn may as well be in power May is no different to Labour!”
The silence of Brexiteer cabinet members such as Davis and Johnson has also caused concern for those expecting a clean break from the EU as questions surround their loyalty.
Although the Prime Minister feels progress is being made, the deal has all the elements of a ‘soft Brexit’ which could prove costly for her premiership over the next few months with support growing for Jacob Rees-Mogg gaining strength by the day.
