The Prime Minister has refused to clearly state that she supports Brexit when asked, simply saying the British people have made the decision to leave the European Union (EU).
Theresa May campaigned to remain inside the Brussels bloc, and her enthusiasm for exiting has been repeatedly questioned as she leads the nation out.
“Almost two years ago you had a referendum on Brexit in the UK – you were a ‘Remainer’. Have you changed your mind?” Mrs. May was asked at a joint press conference with Danish premier Lars Løkke Rasmussen in Copenhagen this Monday.
“Yes, I did campaign to remain,” replied the Prime Minister. “But, the British parliament gave the British people the choice as to whether to stay in the European Union or not.
“The British people gave their verdict – They want to leave the European Union, and I believe it is now for us all to pull together and to ensure that we deliver a Brexit deal that is good for the UK.”
During the Brexit negotiation, Mrs. May has made so many concessions to the EU some Brexiteers, such as former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, have dubbed her “Appeaser Theresa”.
WATCH | Theresa May is asked yet again if she’s changed her mind since campaigning with the very dishonest Remain campaign – and once again she refuses to say she now supports national independence.
How can we trust her to deliver Brexit?

Just last month, she called for the UK to “remain in step” with many of the bloc’s rules and regulations, effectively keeping the UK in the Single Market, and said the EU would have a say in setting migration policy after Brexit.
On migration, she has also caved to the EU’s demand to keep the UK’s borders open for two years after the divorce and allow all new arrivals to settle permanently.
Britain had initially wanted the cut-off date for new migrants being given full rights to be the 29th of March last year, when Article 50 was triggered, to stop a last-minute rush of new arrivals.
In a deal struck in December last year, the EU and UK said they had verbally agreed to set the cut off day as the Brexit date – March 29th, 2019.
However, the EU backtracked in January this year, calling for migrants coming during the ‘transition’ to be able to stay, and the Brexit co-ordinator for the European Parliament, Guy Verhofstadt, said limiting migration in the transition would be “unacceptable”.
