PM’s Political Declaration “Not Good Enough” Says Alex Mayer MEP

Posted by Alex Mayer on 22nd November 2018

Following the publication of the Withdrawal Agreement Alex Mayer MEP said:

“Theresa May has added nineteen pages of waffle to her “political declaration”.

“It’s an “aim to provide” visa free travel, she wants to “consider appropriate arrangements” for cooperation on space, and “explore the possibility” of working together on medicines regulation.

“It’s not good enough. This could have been written two years ago. What Britain needs to a plan to protect jobs, workplace rights and environmental standards.

“Where’s the promised frictionless trade for UK businesses? Where’s the certainty about our future relationship with out closest neighbours and partners?

“Taken together, the withdrawal agreement and the political declaration are a complete failure after two wasted years of negotiations.”
