Brexit: Important to have “no deal” option

6th July 2017

Speaking in a debate on Brexit and global trade, Andrew Bridgen insists that it is important that the “no deal” option is a valuable part of the negotiation.

We talk about whether no deal is better than a bad deal, and it is a card that we can play. I put it to the hon. Gentleman that not accepting that does not mean that we will get a good deal, but if we do not accept that no deal is an option, we are guaranteed not to get an exceptional deal. For example, if he was to go and buy a car and said, “I have to buy a car today”, or if he said, “I would like to buy a car, but I don’t have to buy it today”, which would he get a better deal for? And would he like to buy a car?
