This is an important moment. Clearly No10 are negotiating a “backstop” that makes the UK a permanent EU colony. We cannot escape EU laws & ECJ until they allow us to – which they may never do. That’s not what the biggest majority in our history voted for #NoColonyStatus 1/4
This backstop keeps the UK in the Customs Union, keeps Northern Ireland in the single market, and almost certainly enhances NI/GB checks. It *will* apply after 2020 unless the EU agrees it won’t. And they will only agree if we keep our rules in lockstep with theirs 2/4
This backstop closes off our options. It means we cannot have no deal / WTO or SuperCanada. Under either our rules could differ from the EU’s – so they will keep us in the backstop instead. It means, in fact, that the only possible deal is Chequers 3/4

My reply to @TomTugendhat & @AllieRenison on why we must #ChuckChequers if we want to avoid Norway+ & have an independent trade policy. THREAD =>

2) Lord Lilley explained how the figures for FCA are actually far worse. Over half the imports that would be under consideration in an FTA would be subject to the complex repayment system. No basis for a reciprocal FTA.…

And then there's the huge amount of very worrying evidence that the actual electoral registration process was compromised, and the involvement of a company with a director who was a Vote Leave campaigner in the processing of our votes

Everyone wearing #StandUp4Brexit and #ChuckChequers badges, natch.

Thread: "#Brexit & #Chequers, the sellout. Dump it, let's move on".
I keep hearing "Where is the plan?" and a load of misinformation on #Brexit, pushed on UK media by irrelevant & biased commentators, elevated simply because they are avid Remoaners.
They aim to distract.
We already knew from those tasked with the negotiations, there had been a definite direction of travel & #Brexit plans were well advanced, prior to #Chequers.

David Davis & his team had been constantly rebuffed by Number 10, as they tried to pursue a proper #Brexit plan, but they HAD been making progress.
