Commenting on Simon Coveney’s interview on the Andrew Marr Show, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said:
"The Irish Deputy Prime Minister has reminded the Conservative party of the realities of Brexit today.
"There will be no changes to the backstop and the fantasy of GATT 24 has been expunged once again.
"The Conservatives must not be allowed to waste any more time to push the country ever closer to No Deal Brexit . Parliament must show that the only real way forward is a People’s Vote with an option to remain in the EU."
