ANDREW BRIDGEN says Brexit should ‘not have become a party-political issue’ and accused national leaders of hiding their real views.
The North West Leicestershire Brexit-supporting Tory MP told David Icke.com that neither former Prime Minister Theresa May nor current Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had told the public what they honestly think.
Bridgen, who voted three times against May’s flawed withdrawal bill, explained: “Mrs May is a Remainer but could not say so in her position.
“She voted Remain in the referendum and when asked privately what she thought either avoided the issue altogether or admitted she was in favour of Remain.
“As for Jeremy Corbyn, the sheer hypocrisy of the Labour Party never surprises me.
“He has spent his whole political life speaking in favour of leaving the European Union and I don’t believe he has changed his opinion.
“He has been manipulated both by people within his own party and his union paymasters.”
Bridgen admits that the public’s confidence in politicians has taken a hit as a result but is convinced current Prime Minister Boris Johnson is genuine in his declared ambition to get the UK out of the EU on October 31.
“I’m confident that he means what he says but we face a lot of opposition.
“The Remain Alliance will do everything it possibly can to stop Brexit and are helped by the speaker John Bercow who is having an absolute swansong.
“He knows he will be out at the next General Election and is getting more erratic and unpredictable by the day.”
Bridgen adds that the ‘relentless onslaught on the Government backed by the media’ is weakening its negotiating position with the European Union.
“If they think we are vulnerable, they have no reason to make any concessions.
“But I think the issue of whether we leave with or without a deal is exaggerated as are the reports of what might happen after October 31.
“There were 22 weeks of continual industrial action at French ports but no food or medicine shortage as a result.
“So there is no reason to expect that to happen.
“We will be in a good position to negotiate a ‘super Canada’ deal after we leave.”
