Daniel Zeichner, Member of Parliament for Cambridge, has called the ongoing Brexit crisis ‘an embarrassment for politics and for the country‘ in the wake of six Government resignations less than 24 hours after the Prime Minister got Cabinet support to back her draft EU Withdrawal Agreement. Mr Zeichner has said that the current draft Withdrawal Agreement satisfies no-one and there needs to be a new way forward.
Daniel Zeichner MP said: “The Prime Minister has been humiliated by her own colleagues, some of whom agreed with her yesterday only to stab her in the back today. The descent into chaos by the Conservatives is an embarrassment for their party, for politics and for the country.“
“Labour has a much better alternative, based on our long-standing six tests. What we want is a General Election, but if that doesn’t happen, the question of EU membership must go back to the people. At Labour conference we agreed that ‘all options are on the table, including a public vote‘ and we will hold true to that. Personally, I still think that the best deal is the one that we have at the moment – staying in the European Union, and fighting for the changes we need to address the real concerns that many people have.“
