    Excellent article from Mathew Parris

    https://www.spectator.co.uk/2017/07/...-your-mistake/

    It's now becoming clear as the "transitional deal" gains momentum that this will be a huge defeat for the Brexiteers as it will mean being a sh*tty member, so their only hope is to make a mess of the negotiations and crash out of the EU.

    I reckon the chances of the government being brought down are increasing by the day.

    What parts of EU policy do you think (not hope) we will end up leaving?
    I think hardbrexit is unlikely. A soft brexit seems deliverable within HM government and within the EU. Falling out onto WTO is possible, but I would imagine an emergency general election/UK referendum would be held before it/just after it.

    I'm not sure what we will end up leaving, Norway opts into other things because it wants to. By I'm not sure what the UK wants, and I'm not sure there is even a unified cabinet position on this.

    This is a big part of the problem, and means the negotiations might not be effective, particularly if the EU side knows that the UK is unsure what it wants and the cabinet aren't agreed either (And I strongly suspect that if the EU didn't know before negotiations started, they will have realised it within a few minutes of it starting)

    Brexit SABOTAGE: Is Britain about to move in direction of Norway-style deal with EU?


    now Brexiteers Liam Fox and Michael Gove are also thought to be on board with the watered down agreement as they buckle under the pressure from Remain-backing Tory MPs like Philip Hammond who have called for a Brexit transitional period.

    The trade agreement would be great for all of us and what about the other points?

    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.
