Anne Marie Morris, MP for Newton Abbot in Devon, speaks to Brexit Facts4EU.Org about the ‘codpiece’

Last night Devon MP Anne Marie Morris – a rising star amongst the democratic, ‘Get On With Brexit’ public – spoke to our Editor about Mrs May’s latest desperate effort yesterday evening to save her Government’s universally-panned Withdrawal Agreement.

In advance of the formal legal opinions, Ms Morris was clear

“It would seem the PM has wrung three things out of the EU, none of which are worth the paper they’re written on. Legislating for the ‘best endeavours’ promise doesn’t give any more comfort – if anything, less!

“The documents have to be studied but mere tweaks to drafts don’t sound appealing.

“The reluctant and grudging acceptance by the EU of the UK being somehow able to end the backstop unilaterally is murky in the extreme. And its terms have to be agreed in advance. It makes no mention of where this leaves Northern Ireland. One can only assume it will be stuck in the EU.

“The Cox codpiece revelation will be a case of how good this magician is at making words disappear.

“This is why getting out on no deal is a good and safe option – from there we can negotiate a better deal which really does deliver that free trade relationship with the EU.”


Anne Marie Morris MP is rapidly making a name for herself. She is the one member of the ERG who seems to be truly in touch with public opinion – in her own party membership and with the population at large.

Her views are not those of the ERG leadership so if you like what she says, now is the time to speak up.

If you want Brexit – a smart, clean Brexit on World Trade terms on 29 March – please join thousands of people in writing to your MP. All the methods to do this are outlined on our #GoWTO page.

Please also let Anne Marie know if you support her, in the comments section below.

Well done, Anne Marie.
Hopefully today you'll be able to get your excellent views across to ERG and the DUP particularly, and to all those MPs who voted down this atrocious WA last time.
It would be good to see you in the next Cabinet, even as Prime Minister.
Best Wishes.

I met a magical fairy yesterday who said she could grant me one wish.
"I wish to live forever" I said.
"Sorry I'm not allowed to grant that particular wish" said fairy
"Fine" I said, " then I wish to die the day after the Houses of Parliament are filled with honest hard-working bipartisan men and women who act only in the people's best interests."
"You crafty bastard, " replied the fairy

Today I felt physically SICK when I read the headlines of the DAILY EXPRESS seemingly exhorting everyone to get behind Treason May's dirty deal. Is insanity contagious? And is there no one left in the MSM whom we can trust?!

May I send a huge THANK YOU to The Hon. Anne Marie Morris MP for speaking out with such confidence. Anne Marie is a true patriot and believes in our great country in both good and not so good times. Our country always pulls through whatever is thrown at us. She recognises the majority electorate voted to "Leave the European Union", as on the official voting paper. Failure is not an option, and the majority democratic instruction to MPs must be upheld, otherwise, what price UK democracy? Anne Marie (and others) deserve their Westminster seat.
The Bill to hold the referendum was introduced to the House of Commons by a certain Hammond in 2015 (see parliament.uk and search for the Bill). History was then made when 544 to 53 Members of Parliament voted in favour of holding the referendum - a majority of 491 MPs.
Clearly, all 544 MPs knew exactly what they were voting for? The rest is history, though MPs should take due notice the main parties stood on their respective manifesto, where over 80% of the electorate voted for those parties in the 2017 general election, hence confirming the referendum result.
It is timely to suggest readers visit two youtube videos (there are many others but these are good). They're from the House of Commons session on 27th February, 2019. The first is a speech [with interventions] from The Rt Hon. Sir William Cash MP (duration: 7mins 31secs), the second from The Hon, Lee Rowley MP, (3mins 46secs).
I suggest both videos are passed between Leave groups and passed to remoaners.

Thank you Anne Marie. The WA is as bad as it ever was!

We need to leave without a deal on 29/03/19.
The next day our nation will begin to flourish and prosper.
MPs need to support leaving with no deal, as Anne Marie does.
They need to come up to present time!

I am waiting to see if the Attorney General attempts to countermand his previous opinion that the backstop would be permanent.
Contrary legal opinion is already being published.

Well !! Geoffrey Cox QC could not perjure himself.
19. However, the legal risk remains unchanged that if through no such demonstrable failure of either party, but simply because of intractable differences, that situation does arise, the United Kingdom would have, at least while the fundamental circumstances remained the same, no internationally lawful means of exiting the Protocol’s arrangements, save by agreement.

Barbara Jell, I wouldn’t be at all surprised the Daily Express is all in favour of May’s utterly discraceful Versailles Treaty 2 surrender ‘withdrawal’ deal. It is a vile Tory rag [comment deleted]. Also, frankly, how can ANYONE in their right mind take seriously the views of a so-called newspaper that DAILY mangles our beautiful English language by having EVERY story within the rag USE CAPITAL LETTERS in EVERY SENTENCE even when those capital letters are not appropriate? Don’t they know it is rude to shout or do their so-called journalists have few, if any, qualifications in the English language? OOOPS, it LOOKS LIKE I HAVE NOW CATCHED THE TRADEMARK DISEASE of the DAILY DIANA!
