Comment on tomorrow’s vote

Posted on: 14th January 2019

May’s deal is dead. No deal dead too. Parliament has stymied itself in triangulated gridlock. The Government is incapable of resolving this. After Tuesday’s vote we’ll be left with a powerless, rudderless Government and a zombie PM. No proposed resolution will be popular with everyone. But the most rational in these circumstances must be to […]

Meanwhile MPs are all at sea over what Brexit means for fishing

Posted on: 20th December 2018

Meanwhile MPs are all at sea over what Brexit means for fishing. They say they’re “seeking clarity”. Some have been seduced by warm words about becoming “an independent coastal state”. But they haven’t twigged. The agreement leaves just as much access for foreign vessels but with the UK in a weaker negotiating position.

I’ve been out and about

Posted on: 20th December 2018

I’ve been out and about. I’ve arranged many public meetings to help inform during this time of political uncertainty and chaos. I’ve been assisted by remarkable people, experts in their field, who are happy to stand with me in packed public halls to inform, engage, advise. I’ll do more in the new year. We should […]

Government’s Brexit strategy

Posted on: 6th December 2018

As the Government’s Brexit strategy continues to spiral into worsening chaos it’s good to see MPs insisted on having full access to the Attorney General’s advice. Everyone noted the local Conservative MP insisted on having this. So it’s odd he voted against the release of the information.

The slow train crash that is Brexit briefly accelerated towards its destiny last week

Posted on: 22nd November 2018

The slow train crash that is Brexit briefly accelerated towards its destiny last week. The draft withdrawal agreement represents a significant achievement for the Prime Minister. You may be astonished to learn that I admire her resilience. She’s done well to secure any kind of deal out of the histrionics and chaos that has been […]
