MP: Brexit deal close

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Kent’s only Labour MP says she will not back a Brexit deal that is about “sav­ing politi­cians’ skin” rather than one that is best for the coun­try – and claims a deal is close to be­ing reached.

Canterbury MP Rosie Duffield has been in Brus­sels on a fact-find­ing visit and said in an in­ter­view that even those who voted to leave the EU wanted a say on the terms of the deal.

She said a deal was close but if it did not re­solve key is­sues like cus­toms, she would not back it.

She said: “It sounds like they are do­ing any­thing or some­thing just to push things through.

“Those re­ally com­plex and com­pli­cated is­sues have not been re­solved or solved or dealt with for the fu­ture. I couldn’t back that – they have not been thor­ough enough.”

She said leave vot­ers had changed their mind, adding: “I’d love a Peo­ple’s Vote and so would my con­stituents.”
