OUTRAGEOUS CLAIM FROM TORY SECRETARY OF STATE OVER BREXIT
January 11, 2019
Given the shambolic handling of the Brexit process by the UK Tory Government, it was extraordinary to hear Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, say in the House of Commons yesterday that Britain will be the envy of other European states because of the position it will be in post Brexit.
I asked him if he was seriously suggesting that the Brexit situation we are currently going through has enhanced Britain’s international reputation. Unsurprisingly, Mr Gove could give me no sensible response to this and could barely keep a straight face.
