LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s trade secretary Liam Fox on Wednesday compared MPs’ attempts to thwart the government’s deal to leave the European Union to stealing Brexit from the majority of British people who voted in favour of it.

“There is ... a real danger that the House of Commons, which has a natural remain majority, may attempt to steal Brexit from the British people. That would be a democratic affront,” Fox told a parliamentary committee on Wednesday.
