PMQs: CHEQUERS PLAN ‘AS DEAD AS A DODO’

Ian Blackford MP has called on the Prime Minister to concede that backing the single market and customs union is the only option to protect jobs, the economy, and the Good Friday Agreement, as the UK leaves the EU.

The SNP Westminster Leader said the UK government’s Chequers plan was as ‘dead as a dodo’ and even more unpopular than the poll tax -  which wiped the Scottish Tories off the political map in Scotland. 

Commenting, Ian Blackford MP said: 

“The Prime Minister is gambling with Scotland’s future, by taking us out of the EU against our will with her disastrous Chequers plan.

“Michel Barnier has said the Chequers plan is “not acceptable.” Mervyn King has called the government’s preparations “incompetent.

“With the clock ticking down will the Prime Minister now finally concede that backing the single market and customs union is the only option to protect jobs, to protect the economy and to protect the good Friday agreement.”
