    All this talk of deals or Norway style agreements...if Johnson can't control the ERG vote then it's a waste of time isn't it? Or are we counting on Lab/Lib dem MP's to vote it through in spite of that group?

    Corbyn has said though he has no opi ion so count on him for anything.

    An admirable strategy. Realistically, this will only happen if the Lib Dems gain a working majority in parliament and unfortunately nobody has a spare squadron of pigs on standby.
    Which takes us back to hard brexit/no deal. Which is what I predicted over 3 years ago due to my lack of confidence in Westminster.
    Not necessarily. There are other possible outcomes, although no deal does have a fairly high probability IMO.
    Please do list the alternative realistic possible outcomes at your leisure.
    I'm sure BJ would be grateful.
    See above, although I ascribe a lower probability to the most likely outcome on that chart.

    Gove said it was ridiculous to suggest that we would have less access to the SM than Turkey so we can put him down as thinking the Turkey model is unacceptable

    It seems all deal options are off the table because of the Irish border issue but no deal will lead to an automatic hard border in Ireland anyway so if that's the main sticking point it makes no sense not accepting a deal that is better for us in other ways.

    I was thinking more of who on here said it, but in any event it's not a likely option regardless of what Gove thinks.

    Thats right, Norway is outside the customs union and there are checks for goods at the border with Sweden. Not sure how this solves the Irish issue.

    Very few people care about the Irish border, most are just exploiting it for their own ends.

    If you waved a magic wand and disappeared the Irish border problem then the ERG and Corbyn would find another reason to not vote for the WA

    Just seen pictures of the march/protests on the front at Brighton where all the socialists (Labour) have gathered. Plenty of banners emblazoned with 'Trust the People - Peoples' vote'.
    Wasn't that what happened in June 2016?.... And clearly resulted in the wrong outcome for the government and most on here.

    I'm not trying to stir up here but merely want to point out that whatever 'the people' vote for it will be ignored. As clearly a few hundred people in Westminster view the wishes of millions as irrelevant.

    Norway model solves the problem

    Only if people accept it. The Norway model has generally be used with membership.of the customs union. Farage once like eea did then he changed his mind. we live in the grip or remains and nodealia. Nodealia used to be a reaction to a certain TV food chef.

    Of customs union and single market to.some is still in. In fact your jot in the single market fully. A sea member can refuse to accept new regulations on toasters and no longer have a single market for toasters. In practice a member accepts all.new regulations to avoid complexity. Not likely something Britain would do. right now we pick tbe most difficult route just because.

    I thought it would have been impossible for Corbyn to confuse himself (and us) even more than he already is. He's surpassing himself now. It reminds of the time a government minister admitted that one of its educational schemes had failed... so they were going to pursue it even harder. At a time when they've fallen behind the Lib Dems in opinion polls, you'd think that he might... oh no, hang on, it's Corbyn.

    But what did "the people" vote for? The guarantees given by the pollies and lobbyists pushing for leave are a far cry from the reality we are now facing - and many leading leave promoters were saying before the referendum that they would not support a no deal brexit and several publically supported a second referendum after a deal had been negotiated - including Farage and Rees Moggs. Before the referendum Vote Leave stated that Britain would exit the EU with “a new UK-EU Treaty based on free trade and friendly cooperation. If there is a belief that the majority voted to get out of the EU with no deal then what is the problem with a second vote, just to confirm that they still feel this way before it's too late? The expense will be minimal compared to the money already spent on trying to retain a tory majority government and the pre-election cash that the government has been promising to throw around recently.

    No deal gives us the same problems with the added difficulty of an Irish hard border.

    Those seeking the Leave vote campaigned accordingly. Unfortunately they can only retain their leadership by continuing along that path because they had no idea how to actually fix things. They can only look for scapegoats to blame for the ongoing failure. Remain supporters included.

    MP's would be genuinely right then. They may not know much but, on average, they probably know a bit more than the sort of person that complains about bananas, "EU meddling" and "Taking back control".

    What sort of clap trap did inspire you to vote Brexit if not the emotional variety?
