Martin Whitfield MP is backing growing calls for the UK Government to rule out the possibility of a catastrophic no-deal Brexit.

Following today’s intervention from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who claimed the “whole world” wants the UK to avoid a no-deal Brexit, and Business Secretary Greg Clark who has warned of the threat posed to the economy by a no-deal scenario, Mr Whitfield has urged Theresa May to remove the no-deal threat,

Speaking in his capacity as champion for the Best for Britain campaign for another referendum, Martin Whitfield MP said:

“It is humiliating for the prime minster to be told to her face that the whole world wants to avoid a no-deal scenario, yet she still refuses to rule it out.

“Countries across the globe are looking at Britain in despair. Japan, like our other allies, understands the folly of a no-deal Brexit. Why doesn’t Theresa May?

“It’s time to put a stop to this madness and give the public the opportunity to choose our future through a People’s Vote.”
