Bill Cash has been saying that the UK cannot remain inside the single market. The Independent quoted Bill Cash as saying “You cannot remain… the 1972 Act has to be repealed as the only constitutional political act, which follows from the vote to leave the European Union,”
“There is no other way open to anyone. If you’re out, you’re out… therefore you can’t engage in an integrated process. You are thereby outside like America is, like Japan is – it’s no big deal, it’s perfectly simple,”.
He then stressed “Once we repeal the Act we can’t remain inside that market. Access to the market is a misnomer. I’m not saying you won’t trade with them but it’s just a misnomer.”
Bill Cash also told The Independent, “The French have to understand that not only does Brexit mean Brexit but means repeal of the 1972 Act and that’s all there is to it. These negotiations are going to be circumscribed by the outcome of the vote. It’s perfectly clear that free movement is not on our agenda. I can’t say more than that.”
