Archbishop of Canterbury backs cross-party Brexit commission to 'draw poison' out of negotiations

From The Telegraph-

The Archbishop of Canterbury has urged Theresa May to set up a cross-party commission to advise her on Brexit to “draw much of the poison” from negotiations.

The Rt Rev Justin Welby said talks over the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union will be “fierce”, that differences in what should be aimed for “divide our politicians and our society” and that a hung Parliament will almost inevitably bring about an “understandable temptation for every difference to become a vote of confidence”.

But he warned that it would be a “disaster” if the UK’s negotiators went into bat against the “united determination of the EU” without having the “confidence” that they have the full backing of Britain.
