A #brexit thread 👇

1. In 2017 we were invited to #No10 to talk to Gavin Barwell about our thoughts on things. I had a conversation with him on #Brexit that rings absolutely true now and is more relevant than ever - so I thought I'd share:
2. I said to him that #Brexit had redrawn 'party lines' - that right/left was now less relevant that #leave/#remain and we had to examine our 'core vote' on that basis. We had done well in the #Mansfield-esque seats and lost the Croydons, we needed to think about why.
3. I said to Barwell that there was no compromise that would keep both #remainers and #leavers happy. That we could not keep both audiences on board in the context of #Brexit and we should not try - it's impossible. We had to leave first, and then we could rebuild the coalition.

“Indicative votes” are a dreadful idea, apparently to force upon us what could not be achieved through the subterfuge of the Withdrawal Agreement: Customs Union (CU), against the Conservative manifesto

In any meaningful sense, Brexit would be lost

The excuse, free circulation of goods, is not achieved with *a* or *the* CU

*A* CU, requires movement certificates into the EU

In both *a* and *the* CU, all checks other than rules of origin are derived from the rules of the EU “single market” (SM)

So to get free circulation through CU, you need the SM too

That means no scope for domestic regulatory changes or independent trade policy: all countries will need us to have regulatory flexibility to do trade deals
