Alex Mayer MEP Says Theresa May Failing To Stand Up To Hardline Tory Brexiteers

Following Downing Street’s statement this morning that Theresa May is “ categorically” ruling out any form of customs union with the European Union, East of England Labour MEP Alex Mayer said: 


“Another option unilaterally swept off the table by Theresa May - it is not good enough. 

"Once again she has surrendered to the hardline Brexiteers. Ruling out any kind of customs union with the EU is completely unnecessary, will lead to even greater economic damage to the UK, and risks a hardening of the border with Ireland.


“It’s clear she can’t stand up to the hardline Tory Brexiteers and that means she can’t stand up for our country either.”
