Former Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union Dominic Raab has rubbished the scaremongering surrounding a ‘No Deal Brexit’ today, detailing the benefits of leaving the European Union on WTO terms.
Raab spoke to Sophy Ridge at Sky News today, Dominic Raab revealed that the French were straightforward about not wanting any hostility on the borders and the NHS were in preparation mode for a ‘No Deal Brexit’, although there is a possibility of some minor turmoil in the beginning the benefits in the long-run would far outweigh the bad.
Dominic Raab said: “The advantage of course if we did end up leaving on WTO terms, I’ve said that’s not my preferred outcome, is we would immediately seize the opportunities to take back control over our laws, our borders, to have a global free trade policy around the world.
“And I think for the public Brexit would be delivered, we could move on. And I think whether you voted Leave or Remain I think there’s a huge appetite for us to get on and deliver this now.”
The former Brexit Secretary also reminded us that the United Kingdom is set to leave the European Union on 29 March and advised the Prime Minister not to flirt with the idea of extending Article 50. If, the incumbent government does not listen, they will be breaking the law.
