Theresa May officially betrayed Brexit yesterday as her lily-livered Cabinet signed off on the softest Brexit possible, leaving hardline Eurosceptics incensed. In a three-page statement, the British government announced that the Cabinet was finally united on a “collective position” over EU withdrawal, one that will ultimately see us leave the European Union in name only.

May’s proposal to the EU will include a “common rulebook” on all industrial goods and agricultural products, also known as a Single Market. Furthermore, she seeks to establish a “Facilitated Customs Arrangement”, also known as a Customs Union. In addition, she expressed a commitment to “labour mobility” – you guessed it, free movement. Wave after wave of wage-condensing, public services draining mass migration will continue in spite of the resounding rejection of it by the 17.4m two years ago.

All three of these factions of EU integration were explicitly dismissed in the Conservative Party’s 2017 election manifesto. Yesterday, they all became official government policy. Proof the Party cannot be trusted. Brexiteers across the land need to fight back and squeeze the Tories at the ballot box, it’s the only pressure they respond to.

It gets worse. This is the initial negotiating position taken by the British government. One can only assume it will get softer after discussions with Brussels, if that’s possible.

As for the so-called Brexiteers within the Cabinet? Well, no resignations – a predictable outcome by career politicians who, as Nigel Farage tweeted last night “don’t have a principle between them”. He must now return to frontline politics to reignite the campaign for our nation’s sacred autonomy.

This sell-out to the global corporates is the final nail in the Tory coffin. We knew they were useless, but this is a complete betrayal of the referendum result and flies in the face of democracy; a total disregard for the will of the British people
