Raab: Expect Brexit Deal by November 21

The pound has jumped off the back of the news that Dominic Raab expects a Brexit deal to be “finalised” by 21st November. The news came buried in a letter from the Brexit Secretary to Hilary Benn, chair of the Exiting the EU Committee. Just three weeks time is quite optimistic… 

UPDATE: Awkwardly a DExEU spokesperson later said: “There is no set date for the negotiations to conclude. The 21st November was the date offered by the Chair of the Select Committee for the Secretary of State to give evidence.”

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
