Brexit. Things are getting worse.

1. The withdrawal agreement is needed regardless of the shape of the future relationship. The withdrawal agreement on the table, including the backstop, will not be renegotiated. EU27 cannot be clearer on this point – and this is the key point.
2. Throughout these negotiations, so many problems have been created by N10’s inability & unwillingness to set realistic expectations, explain tradeoffs and communicate clearly. As the PM runs out of road, the confusion over the withdrawal agreement is the latest example
3. The political declaration allows for a full spectrum of future options, but it is not clear what kind of relationship the UK wants. This will require a proper debate on tradeoffs (and years of negotiation). However, whatever that option: you need the withdrawal agreement
4. No-deal would be catastrophic. There's no such thing as managed no-deal, world trade deal, time-limited backstop or transition with no withdrawal agreement. You expect usual suspects to make it up as they go along, but when ministers do the same, it’s irresponsible & dangerous
5. I would write something about Labour’s policy, but I still do not understand what Labour’s policy is
6. Regardless of what Blair says, EU27 position on free movement will not change for one simple reason: without free movement, there is no point to the EU. If you don't like or understand free movement then you should not be in the EU (and cannot be in the single market)
7. Finally, it is incorrect to suggest that no-deal simply cannot happen. The UK leaves the EU, and becomes a third country, on 29 March 2019, in 103 days.
