19 Remain ministers dubbed ‘hairshirt’, met in secret in bid to stop no-deal Brexit – Daily Telegraph

The UK’s Daily Telegraph carried a story late-Wednesday, citing how early 20 ministers have been secretly meeting in Parliament to discuss plans to stop a no-deal Brexit.

Additional Details:

“The group of ministers, which includes five members of the Cabinet, has held discussions on the best way to avoid the economic damage of a no deal Brexit.

One member of the group jokingly referred to it as the "hairshirt club" because there is no "pizza or alcohol" at the meetings.

The group last met on Tuesday last week for discussions on an amendment tabled by Yvette Cooper, a senior Labour MP, to take no deal off the table by extending Article 50.”
