This comes straight after a report of a possibly government betrayal. Liam Fox the International Trade Secretary has reiterated that the UK must leave the Customs Union if it’s to become a truly global Brexit Britain.
Making his case in China, Liam Fox told Bloomberg : “It is very difficult to see how being in a Customs Union is compatible with having an independent trade policy because we would therefore be dependent on what the EU negotiated in terms of its trading policies and we’d be following behind that.
“We have to be outside of that to take advantage of those growing markets. One of the reasons we are leaving the European Union is to take control and that’s not possible with a common external tariff.”
Fox’s Brexit comments after reports in the Financial Times claiming Theresa May’s advisers were conjuring up a secret plot to formulate a deal with the European Union that would greatly hinder Britain’s sovereignty.
The British government are becoming increasingly feeble and unfit for purpose, this is just another day of mixed messages. Time stops for no man or nation the British people are fed up with the cowardly government Brexit negotiations or lack of them.
