I campaigned and voted to leave the EU, and we must leave properly. The Prime Minister’s Brexit proposals risk leaving the U.K. trapped as a rule-taker from Brussels, needing the EU’s permission to escape the “backstop”. I believe this would be an historic mistake.
Labour have absolutely no answers, but the way forward is clear: this deal must be rejected on Tuesday, paving the way for further negotiations. In these it must be made clear that the “backstop” must be modified so that the U.K. cannot be trapped indefinitely. Failing that, we need to prepare for a clean, global Brexit on WTO terms at the end of March next year. Please WATCH and SHARE.
PS - there are many people catastrophising about a WTO exit. The respected think tank Open Europe has published its analysis, which you can read here.
