Plans for Brexit made by just two people and then kept secret

The plans for Brexit were taken by just two people and then deliberately kept secret – that’s one of the shocking revelations from Tim Shipman‘s Fall Out.

Extract from Fall Out by Tim Shipman

The two people were Theresa May and the unelected Nick Timothy. Rather as with Theresa May’s highly controversial targets for immigration, drawn up based on a junior minister’s slip of the tongue in an interview, her Brexit plans too were not drawn up with care and attention to detail that such a major decision requires.

With the Cabinet not even getting a chance to debate these Brexit plans before Theresa May set them down, it’s a powerful argument in favour of giving the British people a final say and a vote on the terms of Brexit. Otherwise, it’ll be a Brexit based on what two people decided in secret, one of whom wasn’t even elected to anything.

  1. Disgusted with the behaviour of this Government ; who think it wholly democratic to exercise the ” will of just two people ” – democracy in action from the Tories . They are a total disgrace.

  2. and ‘taking back control’ was all about the inner clique who had lost their control because of the advance of democracy. They only got away with it because the ‘right of the free press to scrutinise’ was corrupted by the myths and spin.
