Vince -Brexit not worth itThe Brexit deal is a "mess" and "not workable" says Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable.

He said he admired they way Theresa May had tried to "dilute" Brexit with the deal done at Chequers and "craft something that is acceptable to the largest number".

But, he added: "David Davis made it very clear it is just not workable and if you look at the mechanics of it, it is something that is going to encourage smuggling, large scale bureaucracy and it will be very difficult to see how the European Union will accept it anyway.

"For two years we have had an internal British conversation between different factions of the Conservatives. Labour are also divided and confused.

"There is no consensus and there isn't likely to be."
