1. So if you at all care about Brexit then you by now have seen the Jon Lis thread. Well...
2. It is not very far from my own estimations and I've been saying so for some weeks. So now it is crunch time.
3. The facts have cornered the govt and now they are in deep denial. They are on ever more fragile ground. The tide is going out on them.
4. So now its up to parliament to acknowledge a few basic facts. Firstly a third of trade in goods exists only because of the single market
5. Secondly, the EEA is the only framework that allows it to continue in any meaningful sense.
6. Without it we face a decade of complex legal engineering and a decade of economic uncertainty.
7. There is no alternative configuration outside of the EEA that could ever replace the trade lost.
8. The government is unable to come to terms with this reality and is retreating deeper into the bunker. This cannot stand.
9. We face either an unprecedented economic calamity or a stable measured exit. That is the choice.
10. So parliamentarians must now ask themselves what measures they are willing and able to take to prevent the former.
11. We simply cannot afford to have people in charge who do not understand the depth and complexity and the political reality.
12. As this government has given no indication of understanding the above, it now calls for extraordinary measures.
13. If this full spectrum incompetence is not terminated then we go over the cliff. So this government must fall.
14. The time for passivity and politeness is over. Patience has run out. It is time to act. We have crossed the event horizon.
