Sir Bill Cash took to his feet in Parliament to congratulate Boris and his team for their efforts in achieving this trade treaty with the EU. Sir Bill said: “Churchill and Margaret Thatcher would have been deeply proud of his achievement, and so are we.
Mr Cash then slammed Theresa Mays previous deal saying: “This bill for our future relationship with the EU provides a new exciting era for our trade with Europe and the rest of the world on Sovereign terms, not those of the EU as with the checkers deal.”
Sir Bill did explain his reservations on certain aspects of the deal regarding fisheries and Northern Ireland saying: “There remain challenges on fishing and in relation to Northern, Ireland. We must use our new and renewed sovereignty to exercise the political muscle it gives us to resolve these challenges, we can, and I believe we will.”
Bill finished his speech with a tribute to Boris saying: “. I was told it was impossible (to leave the EU). I refuse to believe them. So did the Maastricht Rebels.”
“Last year the 28 Tory Spartans, which opened the way to where we are today we have now won back our sovereignty despite those European pieces of paper. We owe our prime minister the country owes him our deepest. Congratulations on his achievement.”
