1) Why I can't get behind Common Market 2.0 - too much spin
There's several reasons why I'm against CM 2.0, it's not actually on the table, few people voted for it, it's a pointless #Brexit.

But I have to say a big part of it is @NickBoles & his spin

2) @IanDunt captures the latest here but really spin has been an issue all along. Firstly it was "Norway for now" and when that was torpedoed by the EU it morphed into "Norway+" and now "Common Market 2.0"

But it's just hype, changing & tweaking to make it acceptable
3) The latest is @NickBoles pretending that abstaining on #PeoplesVote is somehow "supporting" it, calling for 2nd ref supporters to support his proposal but refusing to support theirs. Now he's claiming it's a "get out" for FoM when it is nothing of the sort
4) Yes, if we get Norway+ it will be the least worst option but it would still be pointless. There's no passion behind Norway+ and no purpose - it carries zero benefits and is only a damage limitation exercise, a technical #Brexit
5) There was real momentum behind a #PeoplesVote and even #RevokeArticle50

Now Norway+ is emerging as a "safe harbour" for MPs who don't want to commit to either of the above but know that all other Brexits are more damaging.

We deserve better than this snake-oil, I'm sorry
