Tory MPs demand Brexit beers and celebration of January 31 as Withdrawal Bill set to pass through Commons today


TORY MPs have demanded Brexit beers and a massive celebration on January 31 with Boris Johnsons Brexit Bill set to pass through the Commons today.

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay was facing Brexit questions this morning, and Conservative MPs couldnt wait to share their party plans for the historic day.

MPs are calling for Brexit themed pints

After more than three years of dither and delay, the EU Withdrawal Bill will go to its third reading this afternoon.

Polish-born MP Daniel Kawczynski called for celebrations to take place both in Britain and all over Europe.

Addressing the Brexit secretary, he said: The 31st of January is not just a significant day for us here in the United Kingdom, but also for hundreds of millions of eurosceptics across the continent of Europe.

Does he agree with me its very important for us to celebrate this day very publicly as a nation to give a guiding principle to others in Europe that there is life outside the European Union.

MPs were also planning what booze to knock back as we finally leave, with Tory MP Kate Griffiths calling for a special Brexit pint.

The Burton MP said: Would my right honourable friend agree that to mark us leaving the European Union, our fantastic local breweries in Burton-on-Trent should brew a celebratory Brexit beer.

Brexit secretary Stephen Barclay responded: Mr Speaker from the reaction of the house my honourable friends strikes an extremely positive note in one of her first contributions.

I know her constituency is famed for its beer and am sure many members of this house would welcome them celebrating this occasion in such a way, just as I will do myself at the with a fantastic Elgoods brewery, which sits in my own constituency.

The vote is a landmark moment in Britains history, leaving just one stage left at the House of Lords before the UK finally gets out on January 31.

Unlike the flurry of failed votes under Theresa May, the result is in no doubt after Mr Johnson landed a stonking majority in the Christmas election.

This will see it then head to the Upper chamber next week, with the Lords tipped to sign everything off by January 22.

The Prime Minister will then try and negotiate a bumper trade deal, which he has insisted can be completed by the end of the year.

He conducted crunch talks with new EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen yesterday, who outlined plans for an “ambitious” deal.

Daniel Kawczynski called for celebrations to take place both in Britain and all over Europe.

However, the Eurocrat dismissed the idea this could be done in a year, and refused to rule out a further delay.

She said: ‘Without an extension of the transition period beyond 2020 you cannot expect to agree on every single aspect of our new partnership. We will have to prioritise.’

A Downing Street spokeswoman said: “The PM reiterated that we wanted a broad free trade agreement covering goods and services, and co-operation in other areas.

“The PM was clear that the UK would not extend the Implementation Period beyond 31 December 2020; and that any future partnership must not involve any kind of alignment or ECJ (European Court of Justice) jurisdiction.”
