UK Prime Minster Insults the English: where is the English First Minister in these Brexit Talks?
Theresa May is holding Brexit talks with devolved nations at Downing Street, London today (24/10/2016) and she is going to listen to Welsh, Northern Irish and Scottish concerns about Brexit. The Campaign for an English Parliament understands that the UK Prime minister will offer the three devolved government First Ministers direct access to Brexit Secretary David Davis during UK’s negotiations to leave the EU.
Eddie Bone, Campaign Director for the Campaign for an English Parliament stated
“Theresa May stated that she is prepared to listen to the Devolved Nations but how can she listen to English concerns if a First Minister for England is not present during the discussion. England doesn’t have a First Minister and the UK Prime Minister insults the English by pretending these talks are fair as an English voice is being excluded”.
“For the UK to survive England needs to be treated fairly and it is imperative that clearly defined English representation is included in Brexit discussions. How can Mr Davies, the Brexit Secretary, bring together ‘a new forum of representatives from the devolved nations’ if England is not formally recognised and doesn’t have a First Minister.
It was England that predominately voted out and now the devolved First Minsters will now have a chance to change a democratic vote because they will threaten to put the UK at risk if they don’t get their way. If England continues to be ignored by the UK government then English independence is the only way forward”.
