British public will have their say on PM’s Brexit deal at next election, Michael Gove says

BRITISH people will be able to demand a change to the country’s Brexit deal if they dislike the initial agreement, claims Michael Gove.

The Environment Secretary said that after the two year transition period a future government will have the “full freedom to diverge from EU law on the single market and customs union.”

Writing in The Daily Telegraph, Gove claims if Theresa May delivers a soft Brexit, the British electorate could demand a more radical divorce.

He said: “The British people will be in control. If the British people dislike the agreement that we have negotiated with the EU, the agreement will allow a future government to diverge.”

Prime Minister May has finally agreed on the country’s “divorce bill” which will be up to £39billion and includes giving residency status to three million EU citizens.

And leading Brexiteer Gove has welcomed May’s preliminary deal as talks begin on Britain’s long-term relations with the European Union.

This week, The Sun revealed the PM has won her fight with the EU to impose a time limit on euro judges having a say on EU Citizens’ rights.

Brussels has climbed down to accept a 10 year sunset clause to end the role of European Court of Justice rulings after Brexit, diplomatic sources have revealed.

Under the compromise plan to end one of the divorce deal’s major stand offs, Britain’s Supreme Court could refer a small number of legal protests from Europeans living here to the Luxembourg court to rule on.

But that arrangement will end in 2029, when complete overwight of UK laws will return to British judges.

But giving the ECJ a remit for another decade after Brexit risks infuriating Tory Brexiteers.

Leave campaigners have insisted the powerful euro court’s role must end the day Britain leaves the EU on March 29, 2019.
