Former Europe Advisor to Theresa May Raoul Ruparel has admitted in a podcast with Channel 5 News that the deal Theresa May tried to push to the British people would have meant being tied to the EU politically and economically.
The Channel 5 News presenter said: ‘when you were in Downing Street, you were going for a different formal relationship that the one we have now.”
Raoul Ruparel said: “I think even under that relationship, you know, we would have ended up being closer than this one economically and I guess politically to some extent, but you know even under that there would have been continuous challenges, you know, maybe more challenges are given we would have been more closely tied into the EU economically.”
It’s shocking to find out the Former PM would try and pull an Edward Heath for a second time by keeping the UK locked into the undemocratic EU even though the British people voted to leave the EU.
It just goes to show Theresa Mays saying ‘Brexit means Brexit’ really didn’t mean that under her premiership.
