'Theresa May’s international trade secretary has joined his colleagues in painting a gloomy picture of the derailed Brexit consequences as the government and MPs are at loggerheads over the deal. Liam Fox warned of voter upheaval.
Brexiteer Fox predicted a “political tsunami” among the electorate if rebel MPs continued to hamper the process of leaving the European Union, as advised by voters in the 2016 referendum.
Fox’s warnings of political instability follow a week after Transport Secretary Chris Grayling was accused of scaremongering when he suggested that a vote against the government’s Brexit plan could see a rise in far-right extremism.
Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Fox warned: “Failure to deliver Brexit would produce a yawning gap between Parliament and the people, a schism in our political system with unknowable consequences.”
Dr. Fox also took to the airwaves on Sunday to drum up support for the embattled May, accusing a “remain Parliament” of stealing Brexit from a “leave population.”
“Parliament has not got the right to hijack the Brexit process because Parliament said to the people of this country we make a contract with you, you will make the decision and we will honour it,” he told BBC One’s Andrew Marr show.
Criticism for Fox’s comments came in hard and fast on social media, with Labour MEP Richard Corbett saying May’s Brexit deal didn’t deliver to voters what was promised by the Leave campaign.'
