In a letter to the Daily Telegraph, Sir William Cash MP, wrote:

“SIR – Jeremy Warner is right in quoting what Yanis Varoufakis wrote last year – “only one prospect truly terrifies the EU’s deep establishment: democracy”.

Why? Simply because the EU is itself totally undemocratic, as I shall explain in my speech today at a fringe meeting at the party conference. Furthermore, I will explain why the Chequers proposals will entangle us again into the shackles of the EU and why they will be surrendering the gold of Britain’s democracy for the base metal of EU subservience. This gold was won by the repealing of the European Communities Act 1972 under the Withdrawal Act, which is now being undone under the Chequers proposals. By doing this, we are undermining the EU referendum vote.”
