Jacob Rees-Mogg has just revealed the big lie about Brexit
The new 'Brexit Opportunities Minister' has given the game away about Boris Johnson's plans for post-Brexit Britain.
Boris Johnson has repeatedly promised that his government would not use Brexit as an opportunity to reduce workers’ rights and cut food standards.
On the contrary, the Prime Minister insisted that Britain’s exit from the European Union would coincide with UK actually increasing standards in these areas.
The Conservatives’ 2019 election manifesto promised that the party would “raise standards in areas like workers’ rights” while the prime minister’s spokesman insisted that they would bring in “the largest upgrade to workers' rights in a generation”.
Similar denials were also made to accusations that Johnson’s government would use Brexit to weaken food standards.
As Folded previously revealed, Johnson’s government repeatedly targeted journalists who made any suggestion that the government plans to slash food standards in order to secure post-Brexit trade deals.
However, the new Brexit Opportunities Minister Jacob Rees-Mogg has today made some highly revealing comments which suggests all of these repeated denials may have been lies.
