Brexit news: Lord Lawson says Chequers would make UK a COLONY of EU | UK | News | Express.co.uk


The former Chancellor said the Chequers Brexit plan had been “conspicuously unsuccessful” in uniting the Conservative Party.

Speaking on TalkRadio, the Tory peer said: “What it effectively does is make the United Kingdom not a member of the European Union but a colony of the European Union. Governed outside it but governed by the European Union.

“Of course, the whole purpose of Brexit was to recover our independence and become, once again, a self-governing democracy.

‘So it is, if you say, like a compromise. It’s the worst of all worlds.”

  1. Brexit needs to come to pass with full control being gained by the UK Parliament, with the EU having no influence on how the UK proceeds.

    Should Brexit not be achieved then with the EU intention for total political union within the EU then the logical conclusion will be that the UK, as with all other countries within the EU will politically cease to exist and all countries will become states of the EU, therefore countries will cease to exist in any form of individual control.

    Remain at all our peril.
