BREXITEER radio host Julia Harley-Brewer warned Brexit is becoming a “national humiliation” and called for the likes of the European Research Group to tell Prime Minister Theresa May “it’s time to go”.
The furious radio host called for a “leadership challenge” as she said Brexit negotiations have become a “capitulation”.
Hosting her TalkRadio show, Ms Hartley-Brewer said: “A leadership challenge and get someone in who might actually have a bit of backbone when it comes to these negotiations.
“Because it doesn’t feel to me, and I’ve spoken to numerous people who voted Remain, as well as Leave voters who want the Government just to get on with it and deliver that democratic mandate.
urious Brexiteers hit out at Theresa May’s temporary “backstop” arrangement to prevent a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, which could see Britain remain in a “temporary customs arrangement” after the Brexit transition.
The backstop draft sets out a blueprint for a temporary customs partnership if the technology for a “frictionless border” is not prepared in time for the end of the Brexit transition period in December 2020.
Brexiteer Nigel Farage accused EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier of trying to “break up the United Kingdom” by tearing apart Mrs May’s backstop proposal.
Mr Farage said: “Barnier is trying to break up the United Kingdom.
“He’s not carrying out these negotiations in good faith and it’s time for Mrs May to stand up to him.”
The EU’s Brexit negotiator demanded Britain “respect its own red lines” arguing that the proposed backstop would only be feasible for Northern Ireland and not the whole of the UK.
Mr Barnier warned the Mrs May: “Let me be very clear. Our backstop cannot be extended to the whole of the United Kingdom.
“It has been designed for the specific situation of Northern Ireland. The temporary backstop is not in line with what we want.”
Mrs May’s draft proposal was set to continue no longer than December 2021 – a year after the transition period, which ends on December 2020. But this was also rejected by Mr Barnier.
Brexit Secretary David Davis had threatened to resign if Mrs May did not make the “backstop” arrangement time-limited.
