‘Chequers is DEAD!’ Brexiteer clashes with Remainer Amber Rudd over May’s Brexit proposal

Iain Dale had a heated debate with Amber Rudd after he bluntly declared that Checkers was "dead".

Speaking about whether the Prime Minister will appear before the 1922 Committee tomorrow, the former conservative candidate said: "I do not think it's safe in the long term.

"I think when you can not take most of your parliamentary party with you on anything, we all know it and I suspect Amber would agree with me.

"The ladies as proposal are dead, they did not get any agreement on the Brexit side."

The former Secretary of the Interior then went to the defense of Theresa May, replying: "I do not think she is dead, Iain, because she is going to bring an agreement that I believe, a negotiated agreement that we call it."

"It will reach the Parliament and, at that moment, the people will have to decide whether to support the exit of the EU or not."

"If you do not vote, then anything could happen after that, and I think some of those 44, not perhaps Boris, could consider that they would support him a lot."

Mr. Dale said: "I agree with that, I think that for conservative parliamentarians, wherever they are, whether they are on the extreme or on the extreme Brexit side, I think you're right.

"When I return, it will take a lot of courage for a conservative deputy to vote against his own government in that agreement.

"It will be a fudge, it will be a fudge that you do not like, it will be a fudge that I do not like, but I do not see that it is formed."

In a statement from the House of Commons, the prime minister responded to her party's critics by insisting that any power to extend the United Kingdom's transition outside the EU would only be used as a last resort.

The statement follows the anger among the Euro-skeptics Tories in their latest attempt at engagement with Brussels in the search for a Brexit breakthrough.

At the meeting of EU leaders, the Prime Minister held talks on the possible extension of the "implementation period" after Brexit, when the United Kingdom will remain closely linked to the bloc beyond the current final date of December 2020.

In defense of the measure, she told the parliamentarians that the proposal was an "insurance policy".

She said: "If by the end of 2020 our future relationship is not ready, the proposal is for the UK to make a sovereign choice between UK-wide customs support or a short extension of the implementation period," he added. He said.

"I have not committed to extend the implementation period.

"I do not want to extend the implementation period, and I do not think the extension is necessary."
