Rees-Mogg urges fellow Brexiteers to support Boris despite NI compromise - 'Trust Boris!'

Express Politics 1 week ago

Mr Rees-Mogg wrote in The Sunday Telegraph that Mr Johnson can be trusted as he is a Brexiteer. The MP for North East Somerset did note that Mr Johnson might have to make concessions unpopular with Brexiteers. Mr Rees-Mogg wrote: “If he thinks the ship of state is worth an extra ha’porth of tar he deserves support.”

Pro-Brexit MPs have expressed concern over a compromise which would place Northern Ireland legally outside of the EU customs union but remaining in close arrangement with Brussels with a border in the Irish Sea.

Mr Johnson will attempt to agree a deal next week which he has until Saturday to get ratified by MPs in Westminster.

October 19 will see the Commons sit on a Saturday for the first time since the Argentine invasion of the Falklands.

A senior Government source has hit back at suggestions pro-Remain MPs will attempt to make the deal subject to a second referendum.

The Benn act demands Mr Johnson ask for a delay if he cannot secure a deal

They said: “The Surrender Act has already had a negative impact on the UK's negotiating hand and this continued talk of referendum undermines the Government's negotiating position further.”

The Benn Act, which has been described as the Surrender Act by opponents insists Mr Johnson request an extension until January if he fails to agree a deal.
