Remoaner MPs can still DERAIL Brexit, warns Leave donor

REMAINERS in the House of Commons are the “biggest danger” to the United Kingdom’s European Union divorce, warns millionaire Leave donor John Mills.

The businessman, who bankrolled the Labour Leave campaign during the EU referendum, put UK businesses on alert over a potential standoff in parliament when the final Brexit deals is voted on.

MPs and the House of Lords will get a vote on the final deal arranged with Brussels before it goes to the European Parliament for approval.

Critics, however, said the Government was holding a gun to the heads of MPs and the vote was not “meaningful”.

Remainer MPs are expected to attempt to vote down the proposed deal in an attempt to derail or even stop Britain from leaving the European Union.

Speaking to Express.co.uk ahead of the launch of his book ‘ Britain’s Achilles Heel – Our Uncompetitive Pound’, Mr Mills said: “I think the biggest danger that we face is the Government will negotiate a deal with the European Union and bring it back to parliament, who will reject it.

“That will leave a real standoff with no clear way ahead. I think the sort of uncertainty that would produce is the real threat to business rather than anything else.”

Mr Mills voiced concern at the level of Remain-supporting MPs sitting in the Commons but insisted their attempts to stop the European divorce would result in a ‘hard’ .

He claimed there would have to be a point at when the Government must accept a deal or the terms offered by the EU would only get worse.

Mr Mills added: “The best deal for us would be to come out of the single market, the European Economic Area, customs union, and then renegotiate a free trade deal.

“I think that will satisfy most people in this country. I think the problem is what are we going to do if that option is not available, and we get much tougher terms after by the .”
