Brexit was undoubtedly the main focus of the questions directed at The Prime Minister today in the House of Commons.
Leader of the Opposition, Keir Starmer questioned whether the public should trust the Prime Minister with Brexit after failing to deliver his “over-ready” deal with only 23 days until the transition period ends.
The Prime Minister insisted that the UK had a deal already, and that it would deliver on everything that was promised when Brexit was being voted on and campaigned for. The Prime Minister reassured Mr Starmer that whichever deal the UK gets, Australian or Canadian terms, the UK would be in a better position that it was before it left the EU with the Prime Minister saying the UK would be a “magnet for overseas business”.
When asked about the 50,000 customs officers the UK would need (deal or no deal), the Prime Minister diverted and instead quoted the amount of money that had been invested to ensure that the UK would be ready for Brexit.
Ian Blackford questioned why Northern Ireland was getting special treatment over Scotland, who also voted to stay in the EU. The Prime Minister was also questioned why he thinks Scottish Independent is increasing in popularity as a movement, with the Prime Minister citing the 2014 independence referendum as a once in a generation opportunity.
