Brexit's History

Steve Rimmer

Welcome to BREXIT'S HISTORY - a look through the archives here at the English Programme to revisit what everyone in the Brexit debate has said, just in case they thought that we'd all forgotten. The following is a 5 minute curation of quotes from those on the battlelines of brexit over the past year - from the famous 'We will implement what you decide' promise, to that description of Theresa May's WA by Boris as vassalage.

Boris represents the same old politics we need rid of! Boris' treaty deal means the ‘status quo’ EU transition is likely to go on until 2023 at a cost to the British taxpayer of £65 billion.
