Dave in Denial: Speech Welcoming Trade Deal Doesn’t Mention It Was Only Possible Because of Brexit mdi-fullscreen

In his first address as a member of the House of Lords, David Cameron introduced the second reading of the landmark CPTPP bill. The erstwhile leader of the Remain campaign methodically outlined the positive implications of the bill, such as strengthening ties with other economies and diversifying supply chains.

The speech, crafted prior to Cameron’s shock appointment, was initially slated for delivery by former Foreign Secretary and Brexiteer James Cleverly. Guido hears that Cleverly’s original script included a segment highlighting the benefits of Brexit, with this new bill being a prime example of making the most of its advantages.
