Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan attacked pro-Remain and anti-no deal political parties and the idea of a government of national unity. While at the Tory Conference in Manchester Mr Hannan told Sky News that those fighting against Brexit were “democracy dodgers”. The Brexiteer also hinted at the EU enforcing a new government as a means to grant a Brexit extension and prevent a no deal.
He said: “Frankly it depends who is in office.

“What the plan is here, is to have some kind of civilian junta like the EU imposed on Italy and Greece in 2011.
