Brexit Policy Not To Have Cake And Eat It, Says Business Secretary Greg Clark

Ministers faced fresh accusations that they had no strategy for leaving the EU after a long-lens camera in Downing Street caught the handwritten note which read: “What’s the model? Have your cake and eat it.”

Asked about the memo on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme this morning, Clark said he did not know “what the provenance of that note is”.

“All I can say is that it is going to be a negotiation which has to be serious, we have to get our negotiating mandate in place but this is being done soberly and meticulously,” he said.

Clarke said while it “would be nice” to have cake and eat it that was “not the policy”.
