    Greg Mulholland MP has given his reaction to today's speech by the Prime Minister in which she confirmed plans for a 'full' Brexit.

    Greg said:

    "Many people who voted Leave said they wanted to be part of the common market even though they wanted to leave the EU.

Greg scored a very respectable 25 not out, including three fours.
