David Mundell warns wavering Tory MPs no deal Brexit poses greater threat to Union than backstop

“A no deal Brexit poses a greater threat to the United Kingdom’s survival than the Northern Ireland backstop, the Scottish Secretary has warned wavering Tory MPs ahead of next week’s crucial vote on the agreement” writes Scottish Political Editor for David Mundell, who suggested in October he would quit if the deal introduced a “differentiated settlement” for the province, said he had since made a different “judgment” based on “what is the greatest threat to the integrity of the UK.” While he admitted he is not “totally comfortable” about the backstop, he said his “clear conclusion” was that the “chaos and division” created by a no deal Brexit would be far worse for the Union.
