Cooper market sweep

11 March 2019

This morning, in a big speech to the Centre for European Reform this morning, Cooper is savage about May’s ‘reckless’ approach to exit talks. But she also sets out what could happen once Parliament votes on Thursday for a delay to Brexit. She will say that May “should focus on the future partnership rather than getting stuck on the backstop”, that “she should offer indicative votes to test Parliament’s views” and “should publish a proposed mandate for the negotiations on the future partnership and let Parliament put amendments to it”. Cooper knows MPs are in the market for alternatives that could sweep May’s power away from her.
