Cabinet Minister Penny Mordaunt warned Labour would take Britain again into the European Union by the again door in a heated election debate.

Leaders of the 4 smaller events admitted they wished to rejoin the bloc as they clashed over Brexit.

Labour’s deputy chief Angela Rayner claimed her get together wouldn’t search to return the UK to the bloc – simply hours after Sir Keir Starmer vowed to do “anything” to make journey into the union simpler.

In a seven-way debate on ITV, the events had been requested if they might ever rejoin the EU or the only market.

Ms Mordaunt replied: “No and if you have a Labour government they will take you back in. They will tie you on defence, on migration, on regulation without any of the benefits of membership.”

Ms Rayner insisted Labour wouldn’t rejoined and mentioned there was “respect” for the results of the referendum to go away.

SNP chief Stephen Flynn mentioned the Labour deputy chief’s response was “shameful”.

For the Liberal Democrats, Daisy Cooper mentioned she “at some point in the future I very much hope so”.

Carla Denyer, the chief of the Green get together, mentioned “yes when the time is right” whereas Plaid Cymru’s chief Rhun ap Iorwerth mentioned he wished to start out with a return to the only market and customs union.

Reform UK chief Nigel Farage mentioned: “No, we are free. Unfortunately we are governed incompetently, but at least they are our mistakes and not somebody else’s.”

Earlier, Sir Keir informed LBC he would do “anything” to make it simpler to journey “whether it’s in Europe or abroad”.

The Labour chief criticised the phrases of Britain’s departure from the bloc.

He mentioned: “I think with the deal that we’ve got, that Boris Johnson negotiated, we got a botched deal, and that has had an impact.

“And that’s why what you see in our manifesto today, as part of our growth plan, is a better deal with the EU. And that is an essential part of our growth plan – to make trading easier, to ensure that we could do some of the research and development that we need, and the education, but also crucially in the area of defence and security.

“So I accept that we’ve got a botched deal that Boris Johnson inflicted upon us. We could do better than that. And that is essential for the future plans that we have for creating wealth and for growing our economy.”
