Default Agriculture Minister George Eustice MP quits over possible Brexit delay

[Agriculture minister George Eustice has resigned over Theresa May's decision
to allow a vote on delaying Brexit if her deal is rejected
again by MPs.
In his resignation letter to the prime minister, Mr Eustice said
he wants to be "free to participate in the critical debate that will take place in the weeks ahead".]

Later, bitch.

Rushing us out of Brexit with no plan or anything in place won't help anyone. Better to take the time we need to ensure the best possible outcome then rush out just to fulfil an arbitrary deadline..

We definitely are if we leave in March with no deal and no real plan.

Better to delay and get our **** together first.

There is nothing we don't know now about Brexit that will suddenly become clear by delaying it two months. We won't find a miracle solution, parliament won't suddenly find a consensus and the EU won't finally budge by asking again in May rather than in March. If anything a delay provides them less incentive to make concessions as they believe that by holding firm we will just continue to delay and delay Brexit and ultimately Remain. That's also why I don't think they would allow a delay of only a couple of months, they'd want to make it two years and then its five years after the vote and we still haven't left the EU..

I'm starting to take the view that better a horrible ending than unending horror, if MPs reject May's deal - the only deal - then we have to accept No Deal as the outcome and then at least we will actually know where we are and can focus all our attention on minimising the disorder as much as possible

But it may get voted to Stop No Deal
then it could even be a General Election
11 Indie group MP's get washed down the bog
