Remainers demanding ‘soft Brexit’ are ‘PUNISHING’ voters, blasts Rees-Mogg

JACOB REES-MOGG has warned voters about Remainers hoping to keep Britain attached to the European Union by pushing for a soft Brexit.

The prominent Brexiteer said any notion a soft European divorce was still an exit from the bloc was false, insisting the country would still be attached to cross-EU bodies – such as the European Court of Justice.Mr Rees-Mogg said any attempt to secure a soft Brexit should be seen as “punishing” voters who chose to quit the political project in June last year.

Speaking to Sky News, the Conservative MP for North East Somerset said: “The terminology is deliberately confusing.

“Soft Brexit means remaining within the European Union, it means rejecting what voters said on June 23, 2016.

It is just a code word, because they don’t want to admit that they’re trying to punish the electorate

“It is just a code word they use because they don’t want to admit that they’re trying to punish the electorate.”

Mr Rees-Mogg also showed his appreciation for Boris Johnson’s recent comments, where the Foreign Secretary said the EU can “go whistle” for any “extortionate” final Brexit payment from the UK.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Mr Johnson said: “The sums I have seen that they propose to demand from this country appear to be extortionate.

“Go whistle seems to me to be an entirely appropriate expression.”

He said: “They’re entitled to, they’re opposition politicians and the job of the opposition is to oppose.“But the negotiations will be done by the British Government, and although the result wasn’t as good as we hoped for, the Conservatives won the election.

“Mrs May is the Prime Minister and David Davis is the  secretary – they will be the ones doing the negotiations.

“It’s a perfectly reasonable thing for them to do, but it won’t change the trend of the negotiations.”
