Alex Mayer MEP today stood up in the European Parliament to call on the UK Government to break the deadlock and make more progress in the on-going Brexit negotiations in order to provide businesses and her constituents with more certainty.
Ms Mayer said: “Every industry I speak to has their own Brexit problem. Whether it’s groundbreaking research that relies on cross border data flows, imports and exports at our ports, or the freedom of movement of Newmarket’s racehorses.”
The East Anglian MEP’s speech came as the European Parliament voted in favour of a motion calling for further progress to be made, and the negotiation deadlock to be broken.
She continued: “The talks are not going well, but that’s not surprising when we have a Prime Minister more worried about negotiating with her own cabinet than engaging constructively in the Brexit process.
“As a ‘Remainer' I have no doubt that Britain will emerge from all of this weaker, poorer and more isolated. So, I say to the British government, with a bumpy landing ahead, why, oh why, do you choose to deliberately fly through turbulence?”
