A HEATED row erupted between Brexit minister Kwasi Kwarteng and Brexiteer radio host Iain Dale after the Tory MP attempted to force Britons to accept Prime Minister Theresa May’s controversial Brexit proposal by claiming "a majority of people just want to move on”.
Brexit minister Kwasi Kwarteng said he thinks the Prime Minister will get the deal through Parliament because people "want to move on with the Brexit process”. But Iain Dale hit back and warned the Tory MP that Prime Minister Theresa May "can't just rely on people being bored of Brexit".
In response, Mr Kwarteng said: “They are not necessarily bored, but they want progress. They want a step forward and this deal is the way they can step forward."
The radio host blasted: “When you were campaigning in the referendum and you were campaigning for Brexit, you weren’t campaigning to stay in the customs union seemingly forever. You weren’t campaigning for continued regulatory alignment with the EU with no say on those regulations.”
The Tory MP said he was “campaigning for an end to freedom of movement” after Brexit.
But Mr Dale grinned and said: “That’s what you are going to say – just address the customs union issue.
The Tory MP swerved the question and said he was also campaigning for Britain to stop sending over money to Brussels.
The LBC host fired back once again and said: “We are handing over £39billion for no guarantee of free trade agreements. Any sensible negotiator would have said we were happy to pay the £39billion but not if we do not get a free trade agreement within a certain time period.”
