Brexit warning: Keir Starmer a 'Euro-fanatic' who 'can't be trusted' to protect Britain's sovereignty
Exclusive: Sir Bill Cash says Labour Party and its leader WILL betray Brexit if they gain power
KEIR Starmer is a 'Euro-fanatic' who could destroy Brexit if voters give him the keys to Downing Street, Sir Bill Cash warned today.
The veteran Tory MP - and Chair of the European Scrutiny Committee - sent an ominous message to traditional Labour backers in red wall seats who swung behind Boris Johnson at the last election because they support Britain's exit from the EU.
He told GB News: “I do not trust Starmer at all.
"Never forget what he has committed to over the years. He is a Euro-fanatic and so are his party.
"The Conservative Party stands for sovereignty, self-government, and democracy, the voters of the UK should vote for a Conservative government which by a majority of members of parliament can ensure our sovereignty and democracy.”
Starmer has denied he would take Britain back into a deeper relationship with the European Union, saying in a recent interview there was "no case" for rejoining the bloc or the single market.
He told the BBC "I do think there’s a case for a better Brexit, and I do think there’s a very good case for making Brexit work.”
But the Labour leader's voting record in the House of Commons tells a different story.
He has voted 48 times against Britain's withdrawal or related legislation needed to take Britain out of the EU.
And just two years after the decisive Brexit referendum, in 2018, Starmer tried to thwart the will of the British People by calling for another referendum on the Brexit withdrawal agreement.
Cash added: “Labour cannot be trusted at all.
"Only the Conservative Party can deliver a majority vote in the House of Commons to maintain the sovereignty of the UK into the future.

Britain officially left the European Union on January 31st 2020 but rows about the future relationship still rage on.
The Northern Ireland Protocol dispute remains unresolved and many argue that the benefits of Brexit have not been realised yet.
Cash, though, claimed many of the problems were caused by officials determined to oppose Brexit and prevent it being a success.
The Tory heavyweight said: “The delay has simply been obstructionism from parts of the Civil Service and misinformation from Remainers exaggerating the difficulties.
“The Government is determined to carry forward Brexit freedoms and I support them strongly on this, and we are still on course to complete the process before the next general election.”
Cash insisted that the Conservatives could defeat Labour at the polls - despite recent opinion polls pointing to a Labour landslide - and "completing Brexit" and delivering for the British people is key to that.
He added: “The party is getting itself in order and with the completion of Brexit and new freedoms including deregulation, competitiveness, incentives for innovation and technology, creating new international trading opportunities, we certainly can win the next election.”
According to YouGov, just 20 per cent of Brits think the Government is handling Brexit well. But even fewer - 18 per cent - think Labour is capable of doing a better job.
