Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, Dominic Raab has resigned in the wake of Theresa May’s calamitous Brexit deal unfolding before the nations very eyes.
Dominic Raab claimed that he “Cannot in good conscience support the terms proposed for our deal with the EU.”
The now former Brexit Secretary explains that the deal is “A very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom.” and voices his opposition to an “Indefinite backstop arrangement where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit.”
Raab joins David Davis and Shailesh Vara in resignation over the deal procured by Prime Minister Theresa May.
Northern Ireland Minister Shailesh Vara also resigned from government this morning, claiming the “Agreement does not provide for the United Kingdom being a sovereign independent country leaving the shackles of the EU.”
Since Theresa May drafted her Brexit deal three ministers have quit their roles in government in opposition to her plan. Criticism for the deal seems to be coming from all sides of the political spectrum and doesn’t seem to be favoured by those that voted for Brexit or against it.
Theresa May’s days are numbered in No. 10 Downing Street. She has sold her nation down the river.
