Blocking Brexit could lead to a surge in far-right extremism in the UK, the transport secretary has said. Chris Grayling told the Daily Mail that failing to leave the EU would cause the 17 million people who voted for Brexit to feel "cheated".This could end centuries of "moderate" politics in the UK, he said, as he urged his colleagues to back Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal.A vote on the agreement takes place in the Commons on Tuesday.MPs are widely expected to reject the deal, negotiated between the EU and UK, with more than 100 Conservative MPs among those opposing it.
Ministers have warned the UK faces Brexit "paralysis" if this happens.
'Political game-playing'
Just days before the critical vote, Mr Grayling, who campaigned to leave the EU, told the Daily Mail: "People have to think long and hard about how they are going to vote. "This is too important for political game-playing and I urge Conservative MPs who back Brexit and others to back the deal."If not, we risk a break with the British tradition of moderate, mainstream politics that goes back to the Restoration in 1660."MPs need to remember that Britain, its people and its traditions are the mother of Parliaments. "We ignore that and the will of the people at our peril."

UK faces Brexit 'paralysis' - Hunt
Kuenssberg: What could change dynamics of Brexit vote?
Mr Grayling's intervention comes after his Conservative colleagues warned about the possibility of the UK leaving the EU with no deal.Northern Ireland Secretary Karen Bradley said a no-deal exit would create a "feeling of unrest".Tory rebel Dominic Grieve, who tabled the amendment that led to a second government defeat on Brexit, urged the prime minister to delay Brexit if her EU deal was rejected by MPs.Mr Grieve is among a group of MPs calling for a second referendum.Meanwhile, James Starkie, a former Vote Leave campaigner and ex-adviser to Environment Secretary Michael Gove, has told the BBC that a no-deal Brexit could have an impact on food imports from Europe."I think that it is possible that certain types of food that are seasonable and come directly from the continent could be impacted to a limited degree. "What I don't think is going to happen is that people in any way aren't going to be able to get the food that they need on a weekly basis and that there will be a shortage of food in that way."
