Brexit Party leader urges Parliament to reject new deal

Thursday, October 17, 2019

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has urged the U.K. Parliament to reject the new tentative deal reached between the British government and the European Union.

Farage said today the deal is “just not Brexit” and would bind Britain to the EU in too many ways.

He said he would prefer an extension to the October 31 Brexit deadline to be followed by a national election rather than a parliamentary vote in favor of the new terms.

Farage said he favors a “clean break” with Europe rather than “another European treaty.”-AP
