Hard or soft Brexit is NONSENSE, we are leaving the EU’ Jacob Rees–Mogg

Jacob Rees-Mogg slammed the “Soft and Hard” Brexit terms on Question time last night.

Mr Rees–Mogg said: “You are either in the European Union or you leave it. This is not only my view, this is the view of Donald Tusk one of the president’s of the EU, who said there is no such thing as hard and soft Brexit there is only being in or out.

“If we are out of the EU we cannot have our laws determined by the European Court of Justice, we cannot have all our regulations set by being in the internal market and we can’t lose all our trading opportunities by being in the customs union.

“This was clear at the election.

“I brought a quotation incase this was brought up by Wolfgang Schäuble, a very senior German politician, he let the cat out of the bag after the referendum because he said he had been asked to say this by the then Chancellor George Osborne.

“He said ‘in is in and out is out’. We knew what we were voting for, we voted and democracy must deliver.”

On Question Time he added: “This is characteristic of the EU, vote in a way that Brussels does not like and you have to vote again until they have done what they tell you.

“It seems to me that we had a referendum, we voted to leave and that must be implemented or we deny democracy.”

Jacob William Rees-Mogg (born 24 May 1969) is a British Conservative Party politician, who has been the Member of Parliament for North East Somerset since the 2010 general election. Rees-Mogg is on the Eurosceptic wing of his party, and campaigned for a “Leave” vote in the 2016 EU Referendum.
