Sharma: There is a Loss Of Trust

PEOPLE are frustrated and there is a loss of trust in democracy.

That was the message from the MP for Reading West & Secretary of State for International Development,Alok Sharma, this morning.

The International Development Secretary told LBC that he is sure the party's conference will be "extremely successful.”

On Brexit he said "We are making progress."

As TBG reported, Steve Barclay is in Brussels this morning meeting Michel Barnier.

Sharma told LBC "I am cautiously optimistic but there is going to have to be movement from the European Union."

"It will be a very, very positive event."

"The last three years we've not delivered on the referendum result and I think that people do find that incredibly frustrating.”

"They do feel that there has been a loss of trust in democratic processes.”

“We saw that in the European elections earlier this year."
