1/3 No deal is not a long-term policy. It is a moment - leaving without an agreement on a particular date - but it cannot be where we end up. Some kind of arrangement would eventually have to be reached....
2/3 ...but it’s pretty clear that the EU would insist on the main parts of the Withdrawal Agreement being accepted by the UK before they agreed to anything - eg the kind of Canada-style deal which the PM says he wants but which wouldn’t solve the problem of the Irish border.
3/3 So no deal is not only by far the most economically damaging policy but also - ultimately - pointless. That’s why the House of Commons must prevent the new Government from inflicting it on the British people.
