Either McLoughlin or Kuenssberg are deeply out of touch

Tonight on BBC Radio 4 Any Questions, Patrick McLoughlin claimed that he had not read the Treasury document which sets out the basis of our EU departure which earlier today Jeremy Corbyn had made public. As part of the Any Questions Chris Mason made it clear that page 1 was very significant and he had clearly read the document. A few hours after its publication Laura Kuenssberg claimed that there was no information in the document that was not already in public “From first read, material in the document published by Labour isn’t that surprising or secret + some of it has been admitted under duress by ministers, but Johnson has always tried to deny” So either McLoughlin who was speaking on Any Questions on behalf of the Party that had created the document is telling a lie, or else Kuenssberg is mistaken. Bizarrely even Boris Johnson claimed not to have seen the document as a tweet from BBC states: The PM says he hasn’t seen the document, but says it is “complete nonsense”. Claiming something you haven’t seen, which is published by your own Government is complete nonsense suggests you are lying at a very high level. So the major challenges identified in the Brexit proposals should be sufficient to demand that our next Government revokes Article 50 and revisit the issues relating to our proposed departure from the EU before we decide what is possible and what cannot be achieved!
