Andrew Bridgen asks if PM has lost trust and credibility

Following the Prime Minister’s statement on the Brexit withdrawal agreement and the decision to delay the vote, Andrew Bridgen asks her if she has lost the trust and credibility of the House, the country and the EU.

Successful renegotiations require trust and credibility. Given the Prime Minister’s breathtaking U-turn today, I put it to her that she has lost the trust and credibility of the House, lost the trust and credibility of the country and, most importantly, lost the trust and credibility of the European Union.

The Prime Minister

No. What was very clear in my discussions with European leaders is that we will be able to have discussions with them—myself and the UK Government—on this issue.
