More “Remain and Reform”
bollocks. Show some bloody humility and honesty, stop offering the public unicorns, start offering the public an honest and positive vision of EU membership.
I’m deeply concerned that “remain & reform [the EU]” is going to dominate any new referendum debate and we’ll be faced with continued British #cakeism and exceptionalism. Very bad for the UK & for the EU. Cameron’s “deal” was rejected in 2016 & is off the table.
In a longer A50 extension period, unilateral revocation following a Remain vote becomes possible, but an exceptionalist attitude will harden resentment among EU27. For sure, many would rather see the UK leave than remain in those circumstances. So extension could be tough sell.

Seems the EEA advocates think that EEA countries do not contribute to the EU budget. This is wrong. Check this link from the Norwegian Governments own pages:

Ideologists, huh?
Norway contributes to the EU budget in three major fields: to reduce social nd economic disparities, to take part in EU programmes (Horizon2020, Erasmus+, Galileo, Copernicus), and the Schengen cooperation.

Norway and other EEA countries’ contributions to the EU programmes (Horizon2020, Erasmus+, Galileo, Copernicus) are on foot with full member states.
There is no taking part in EU programmes without contributions to the budget.

I'm reading the #Brexit White Paper here. Its utter #cakeism. EU will say no.

This is incredible. So the UK wants a common rule book for goods, but not services, membership of agencies ...

Who's going to be the fucking arbiter then? If not the ECJ!?

So we're at association agreement. Not FTA.
