Caroline Lucas: "This isn’t a parlour game for the Westminster class"

15 November 2018

Responding to the Prime Minister's statement on the Brexit deal, Green Party MP Caroline Lucas said: "The Prime Minister knows the maths – her deal is never going to get through the Commons, and no deal would be an unmitigated disaster.
 
"We now risk chaos – job losses, businesses going under, crisis for our NHS, families divided and environmental rules torn up. That was never the will of the people.
 
"This isn’t a parlour game for the Westminster class. MPs are playing with people’s real lives.
 
"At this moment of conscience we must put aside party politics. Parliament must give control back to the public and deliver a People’s Vote."
