The latest Brexit speech of Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, has been praised by Jacob Rees Mogg. He warned his fellow Brexiteers saying that “now is not the time to nitpick.”
In the Telegraph, he wrote: “There are inevitably a few small points that will concern Leave campaigners, but we must all recognise that everyone will have to give up something to get a deal, so now is not the time to nitpick.”
His sentiments support the content of the speech of Theresa May yesterday that was given at Mansion House in the City. The Prime Minister said that “no-one will get everything they want” referring to the negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union.
Theresa May’s speech was well-received in various quarters, also drawing praise from Remain-supporting Nicky Morgan. In the Telegraph, Morgan called the speech “a welcome dose of realism.”
Theresa May’s speech was also welcomed by the City. Catherine McGuinness, the policy chairman of The City of London Corporation, said that it was “a step towards an ambitious free trade agreement.”
The director general of the Institute of Directors, Stephen Martin, stated: “Business leaders will welcome the Prime Minister’s honest admission that negotiating the future UK-EU relationship will involve making difficult choices.”
