Bow Group Senior Patron, John Redwood, delivers a scathing attack on the single market

Brexiteer MP's brilliant response shows how single market DESTROYED British industries

A BREXITEER MP has delivered a scathing attack on the impact of the single market and customs union on Britain, saying that in the past 45 years there has been no evidence of a boost to growth.

John Redwood, an arch-Brexiteer, spelt out why Britain is better outside of the EU in an incredible response this morning.

The MP was asked by Sky News anchor Niall Paterson to put forward his best arguments for leaving the EU, which he used to remind voters why Brexit remains worth it despite the struggle.

Mr Redwood railed against the damage that membership of the EU had done to the UK, naming the annual payments of billions, as well as destructive fishing policies. 

Mr Redwood also urged the Government to renegotiate its transition deal agreement which forces the UK to stay apart of the Common Fisheries Policy until the end of 2020.

The Tory MP said that Britain should "push harder" in the talks and less "accommodating" to the European Union.

He told Sky News: "The first thing I want to do is take back the money. 

"The easiest way to pay for our schools and social care is to take the £12bn a year back that we give to the EU.

"I want us to take control back of our taxes again, we can take VAT off winter fuel, female hygiene products, green products, and many more products.

"We are very keen to have a fishing policy with fewer discards. We can have less fish taken out of the sea, but still have more fish sold and put on our table.

"We want a farming policy that allows us to have more food grown and produced in the UK.

"There are so many upsides to leaving. Over the last 45 years of our membership of the single market and customs union, it has not produced any boost to growth.

"It has only done a lot of damage to very important strategic industries."

His passionate response on the merit of Brexit won him praise on social media, with Twitter users praising him for "talking absolute sense". 

Mr Redwood also warned against leaving the European Union in name only, adding "no deal is better than a bad deal".
