BREXIT FURY: Remainer MPs' report is shocking attempt to REVERSE EU exit, blasts Rees-Mogg

The row has broken out as the Commons select committee, dominated by Remainer MPs, today publish their latest controversial report which has been opposed by supporters on the committee.

In a sign that Labour committee chairman Hilary Benn, a leading Remainer, has broken with parliamentary convention of trying to get consensus on committee reports, the latest publication is the second in a row to fail to get unanimous backing.

Leading Tory Brexiteer , who is on the committee blasted the Report on the Future UK-EU Relationship as being another device by Remainers to try to stop Brexit.

He said: “The High Priests of Remain have pushed through another report that seeks to overturn the result by stealth.

“Select committee reports are only of any value when unanimous, divided ones have no effect.”

The committee has set 15 tests which it claims must be achieved by the Government to make the deal with the in October this year acceptable.

It says that border between Northern Ireland and Ireland must remain completely open with no physical infrastructure, crime and terrorism security arrangements with the EU must remain the same and there must be no trade tariffs with the EU.

It has demanded that there is an “institutional decision making framework” to ensure that the UK is able fully to participate in foreign and security cooperation with the EU in an apparent bid to undermine the UK’s new independence.

The committee says there must be no border checks for goods and no additional costs for businesses dealing with the EU.

Controversially it does not want workers from the EU to be put off from coming to Britain with new immigration arrangements.

It has also demanded a free flow of data between the UK and EU.

The demands are an attempt to replicate the current status of being under Brussels rule and all attempts by Brexiteers to change the report were defeated by a cabal of Remainers.

This included Mr Benn using his casting vote to ensure the Remainers won three times.

Mr Benn said: ““Having listened to the evidence, we today offer a series of tests against which any deal reached must be judged.

“Our tests set a high bar but they are based on the Prime Minister’s vision for our future outside the EU and the statement by the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, David Davis MP, that any new deal would be at least as good as what we have now.

“It is vital that UK businesses are able to continue to trade freely and sell services into our largest market after we leave, without additional costs or burdens or a hard border in Northern Ireland, and that we maintain close co-operation on defence, security, data and information sharing and consumer safety.

“And should negotiations on a ‘deep and special partnership’ not prove successful, we consider that EFTA/EEA membership remains an alternative which would have the advantage of continuity of access for UK services and could also be negotiated relatively quickly.”
