Why aren’t there more Tory’s Like this bloke??

PMs former top adviser tells Telegraph readers that as the PM’s deal is dead as a dodo & no majority for no Deal - “we are left with Norway or a second referendum”.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

He/she seems to be making the same rather crucial mistake that amber rudd did last week.

The PM's deal does not contain a future arrangement. "Norway" is a future arrangement.


"Norway" can not therefore be an alternative / plan B to the PM's deal.

Are you surprised? Why would they want a shambolic country like the UK to rain on their parade?

The lawyers have set a 21 ? month timetable for agreeing the new deal.

SP has advised us that it will take at least 5 years.

Canada took 7 years.

Our MP's former senior advisor wants to do it in 3 months

Just drop all tariffs and laws on all imports, then we wont need any free trade deals. Flood the country with the cheapest of the cheap.

There is no deal that will get through parliament.
Too Brexity and the remainers wont vote for it.
Too remainy and the leavers won't vote for it.
One in the middle like on offer, neither will vote for it.
SNP wont vote for any deal.
Labour wont agree because they want to be in "a" customs union, which isn't even part of the withdrawal deal it's part of the future trading deal.
MP's wont compromise in the hope that in increases the chances of getting what they want.

SNP struggling to get its budget approved by Holyrood by the looks of things. The Greens are not having it because there hasn't been a significant change to council tax funding. Lib Dems won't get behind it unless there is a commitment to never again go for independence (lolz) and Labour are Labour and don't know who the enemy is.

In fairness it could possibly be spun, as we will revoke a50 and learn lessons before embarking on the farce for a second time? Even the most ardent Brexiteer would probably choke that down, unless they advocate a hard brexit, in which case they should be ignored anyway.

its unpassable at this time, and we need to kick the can down the road 5-10 years.

In that time work on things like food security to reduce import pressures (as well as benefiting the climate..) while perhaps even increasing capacity at secondary ports. Increase energy production capacity in NI etc.

At the very least it will have been a good exercise in the countries viability as a single entity

To be fair it’s only a handful of extremists who want no deal. Parliament just needs to slap them down once and for all.

Was watching a brexit committee(car manufacturers) talking about chunnel lorries backing up at an estimated 1mph in event of hard brexit, which by the time it hits the m25 , the economic damage to the functioning of the UK would be catastrophic . There is no magic or technical solution to this. Or the fact 80% of NIs UK exports go through Dublin. We cant magic up fixes in the timescales required.

Folk like the ERG can call it project fear, but it is the reality of that all those stupid little JIT fragments are absolutely crucial to the functioning of our economy and society
