Brexit still hangs in the balance and attacks against the UK’s European Union exit must stop, according to Ella Whelan.
The journalist, Ms Whelan insisted Brexit must be delivered in its entirety for Britons in a passionate tirade.
The Government has released Brexit papers this week outlining how it will go about dealing with issues such as the Irish border, customs union and the European Court of Justice.
Speaking on Radio 4’s Any Questions? Ms Whelan said the various attacks on Brexit need to stop immediately.
She said: “I am a very enthusiastic supporter of Brexit and I think that it is a completely uncontroversial point to say that laws of this country should be made in this country and should be talked about in this country and should be decided by the people who live in this country.
“I think the continued discussion about the ECJ really is an attempt to thwart Brexit and I think that’s not being extreme.
“Brexit very much still hangs in the balance for those of us who voted leave and those of us who voted remain and believe in democracy.
“I think these continued attacks on the democratic will of the people is really quite shocking.”
The journalist insisted continued debate over areas within the Brexit process are undermining what British people voted for.
She said: “This is finding its expression in conversation about the ECJ or the single market or the various institutions of the EU.
“Really what it comes down to is that people voted to leave the EU and all of its institutions last year.
“That very clearly happened and I think the continued attacks on that are really quite shocking.”
Taking back control of British laws and sovereignty was a major factor for those who voted for Brexit in the referendum in 2016.
Prime Minister Theresa May said: “What is absolutely clear, as I made clear in that speech I’ve made when we leave the European Union, we will leave the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.
“What we will be able to do is to make our own laws, parliament will make our laws, it is British judges who will interpret those laws and the British Supreme Court that will be the ultimate arbiter of those laws. We will take back control of our laws.”
