May uses BBC phone-in to sell deal to pub­lic

Western Morning News (Saturday) - - Uk And World News -

The Prime Min­is­ter used a BBC phone-in as part of her drive to sell the Brexit agree­ment to the pub­lic.

Mrs May in­sisted there is no mood on the EU side for fresh con­ces­sions.

“If we were to go back to the Euro­pean Union and say ‘Peo­ple didn’t like that deal, can we have an­other one?,’ I don’t think they are go­ing to say ‘We will give you a bet­ter deal’,” she said. “This is the deal I think works for the UK.”

Mrs May said she had re­ceived mes­sages of sup­port from mem­bers of the pub­lic - in­clud­ing a young girl who made her a cake.

She said she was “sorry” and “dis­ap­pointed” some mem­bers of her Cabi­net had re­signed, adding: “Ob­vi­ously, they have got strong feel­ings about this is­sue, they had cam­paigned to leave the EU and they had done good work.”
