1. A few thoughts on the damaging normalisation of No Deal. To start with there is no mandate for No Deal from the 2016 referendum. The Leave campaign never argued for No Deal. It said it would get a deal.
2. There is no doubt that No Deal would be the most damaging outcome for the economy. Have a look at the most recent @CommonsEUexit evidence sessions here parliament.uk/business/commi…
3. I am genuinely puzzled why those who don’t make things and don’t trade with the EU for a living appear to know better than those who do what effect No Deal would have on these businesses.
4. I am also puzzled by those who say they are prepared to pursue this damaging course of action and then announce that they will compensate some businesses for the cost of the tariffs they will face (so confirming that No Deal is indeed damaging to business).
5. No Deal is not in the national economic interest and must be rejected. And with Parliament deadlocked, the best way forward would be to put the real choice - leave with the deal that has actually been negotiated or remain - to the British people.
