Prime Minister Is Flogging A Dead Horse

In the Commons I told the PM that she is flogging a dead horse and I urged her to join forces with senior members of her own Cabinet to back Norway Plus. It protects jobs, gives immigration safeguards, solves NI, means we leave ECJ and helps reunite our deeply divided country


Stephen Kinnock: The Prime Minister must surely now recognise that she is flogging a dead horse. May I urge her to join forces with senior members of her Cabinet and Members on both sides of the House to back a Norway-plus-based Brexit? It is the only option that protects jobs, solves the Northern Ireland border issue and has a chance of reuniting our deeply divided country.

The Prime Minister: Actually, the option that the hon. Gentleman puts forward does not deliver on the vote of the British people, which is what I believe we should do.
