Bill Cash attempted to emphasise the importance of delivering Brexit, be it with a deal or no deal as it was what the people of Britain voted for in 2016 during a heated row on Sky News. While reflecting on the many times MPs across multiple parties had insisted they would respect the referendum and carry out Brexit Mr Cash was shouted over by Green MP Jonathan Bartley. Following the debate, viewers took to Twitter to criticise the Remainers SNP Kirsty Blackman, Plaid Cymru Liz Saville and Green Party Jonathan Bartley and their behaviour during the interview.
Mr Cash said: “First of all the referendum act was a sovereign act of Parliament which quite deliberately gave back to the British people and not Parliament so that they would make the decision about Remain or Leave.
“Then there was a whole series of acts following it many of which were voted for by people, I can’t say from around this table.
“But there was the withdrawal act which every single member of the Conservative Party voted for including Ken Clarke.
“It said we will repeal 1972 on exit day and the law of the land is just that, this is not a technicality.”
Mr Cash was then interrupted by an outburst from Mr Barley who said: “You can’t frame this as Parliament vs the people.
“You are afraid of the people, you are afraid of putting it back to the people.
“No Brexiteer actually wants to give the people the final say.
“You can’t frame this with any credibility.”
Before Mr Cash could respond he gave way to the Plaid Cymru MP as she engaged with the conversation.
Viewers were left outraged by how Sky News’ Adam Boulton conducted the interview.
Many took issue with Mr Boulton’s inability to prevent panel guests from interrupting Mr Cash and refusing to allow the Brexiteer the opportunity to respond and engage fairly.
One Twitter user wrote: “On All Out Politics with Adam Boulton we have three Remaniacs ganging up on Bill Cash.

“Their point essentially being Boris Johnson must obey the law but if it isn’t the law, he should obey it anyway.”
Another furious viewer wrote: “Sky News, what a one-sided joke. All out Politics should be called One-Sided Politics.
“Bill Cash fighting his corner against three Reaminers shouting him down, so biased it’s unbelievable.”
Mark Wilco criticised the point of the entire debate and said: “What a waste of a debate Remainers three to one, four if you include Boulton.
“No debate just shut down Bill Cash and claim Armageddon is coming unless we stay in EU, who organises such a biased line up except a Europhile.”
