We must put No Deal back in play to ensure positive engagement from the EU at the negotiating table

How should the next Conservative leader and Prime Minister deal with Brexit? Only by facing the facts and then acting with energy and decisiveness. First, we need to acknowledge the mistakes of the past few years. It was a mistake to agree a short Brexit timetable without a clear understanding of how that timetable could be achieved; not to recognise that the narrow but decisive referendum vote could and should form the basis within Parliament for an agreed withdrawal deal; to allow the EU to dissociate the financial settlement from the overall deal; and above all not to prepare from the outset for No Deal. Secondly, we need to be clear about the mood of the country. There are feelings of division not seen in our recent history. It is fanciful to imagine that a second referendum could address them, and a general election would create chaos. The only solution to this division is for this country to leave the EU on or before 31st October. Thirdly, we need to recognise the impact of th

Jeremy Hunt denies he's 'flip-flopping' on No Deal

The UK's Foreign Secretary faced a backlash from Leave supporters this week after warning Brexit might have to be delayed again to avoid a 'suicidal' No Deal departure. * This article was originally published here

No-one seeking to lead our nation should be making economically illiterate claims about No Deal

One would have thought that the Conservative Party would have got the message. Maybe they have, maybe they haven’t. Time will tell – but the early signs are not very good. No sooner had three of their leadership candidates Boris Johnson, Dominic Raab and Esther McVey stated the obvious that the UK needs to leave the EU by 31st October, deal or no deal, than Jeremy Hunt went on air to say ‘no deal would be a disaster for the country’ and that he would seek to re-open Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement. Then Chancellor Philip Hammond darkly implies that there is ‘no mandate for no deal’ and that he might support a vote of no-confidence in any Conservative government which tried to leave on those terms. What part of misunderstanding the desires of their core support do they not get? 65% of Conservative supporters voted Leave at the 2016 referendum. The Conservative Party saw their share of the vote drop from 23% (already an all-time low) at the 2014 European election to 9.1% when the v

Trump aide John Bolton says Brexit is a ‘triumph of democracy’ and will boost Britain on the world stage

London Chamber of Commerce Hits Back at CBI’s No Deal Scare

The CBI have waded into the Tory leadership race with an entirely predictable open letter sent to all the candidates warning against the supposed horrors of a no-deal Brexit. They might as well just auto-schedule the same press release every three weeks. It’s only going to get worse when ultra-Remain fanatic Lord Bilimoria takes over as CBI President… Not all business groups share their pessimism – now the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry has hit back at the CBI, with chief executive David Frost pointing out the obvious logical flaws with the CBI’s hardline position: “It is all very well to insist the next Prime Minister must avoid Brexit on WTO terms and instead strike a deal with the EU. But no Prime Minister can actually guarantee that. “That is because it isn’t just a UK decision: it’s also for the EU. That is why, as we have said, business needs to be confident that Government is still preparing for a No Deal Brexit and engaging fully with business organisations and i

YouGov Justify Not Prompting for the Brexit Party

YouGov not prompting for the Brexit Party in this morning’s bombshell poll when it is polling second in Westminster voting intentions and won the Euros has riled a lot of their supporters. Anthony Wells has written an explainer and makes this justification: “…like many pollsters we overstated support for the Brexit Party, putting them at 37% compared to the 31.6% they actually achieved in Great Britain. Over the next few weeks, we will also be looking at the possible causes of that overstatement, and whether there was something to do with turnout, undecided voters or our weighting or sampling scheme that led to us having too many Brexit voters in our final poll.” However, it’s worth remembering their final poll for the 2017 General Election predicted a 7% gap between the Tories and Labour, in the election itself this shrunk by the same margin to just 2%. YouGov may well have tweaked their turnout models afterwards, Guido doesn’t recall them doing anything as drastic as moving
