Theresa May’s Trade Minister has undermined her efforts to convince Brits there is a solid plan to leave the EU by admitting the phrase “Brexit means Brexit” in fact doesn’t mean very much at all.
Mark Garnier said he would not use the PM’s popular soundbite for “obvious reasons” as “it doesn’t give that much clarity”.
The comment will come as a blow to Number 10, who have so far used the phrase in lieu of giving a “running commentary” on Britain’s exit stratergy.
Garnier was talking on Radio 4’s The World At One, when he was asked about Jeremy Corbyn’s quip that the Government’s Brexit plan was befitting of Blackadder bumbler Baldrick.
“On Monday, you told the House, ‘We have a plan which is not to set out at every stage of the negotiations the details’,” the Labour leader shot at May at Prime Minister’s Questions.
