THE CHANCES of a no deal Brexit is becoming more “palatable” to the British people for a key reason, a journalist has claimed.
A no deal Brexit is becoming more “palatable” to the British people due to their “exhaustion” with the whole exit process, a journalist has claimed. Speaking on BBC’s Dateline, Nesrine Malik, a Sudanese journalist, said British people were “sick of politicians” and the “terror of no deal Brexit is now less”. She said: “Can I just pick up on a point you made about a deal that is palatable to the British people.
“I think this is really crucial that the only pressure on MPs to act actually is to how their own constituents feel about the deal or a no deal Brexit.
“My sense is that there is such a sense of exhaustion with the whole Brexit debate, especially towards the end of the year where we crashed into several hurdles. There was the no-confidence vote, she then cancelled the vote.
“I think the terror or justifying of terror of a no deal Brexit is now less likely because people just want it to stop.
“The attention span is too low, they are sick of politicians, they don’t really trust anyone actually so a no deal Brexit might become more palatable to people who before had not thought so, because they just want it over.”
Agreeing with the remark, Eunice Goes, a Portuguese writer, added that there were a number of pro-Leave Tory MPs relishing leaving with no deal.
She said: “Absolutely and I think there is a growing number of MPs on the Conservative benches, who are actually relishing the idea of a no deal Brexit.
