What we should avoid is negotiating a 2 year further transitional period after 3/19 which turns into a prolonged negotiation again. I don’t see how it is more likely we can do a good deal in 2020 if we have been unable to secure one in 2017 & 2018.
We would also take back control of our laws, borders & trade negotiations from 30/3/19. I am happy if the Govt can negotiate a better outcome. If it does, that is good news. If not, under its rubric 'no deal is better than bad deal' it should politely decline the EU offer.
I remain strongly of the view that whilst the Govt would like a comprehensive free trade deal the base case is leaving w/ the WTO option for trade with the rest of the EU, just as we do with the rest of the world today. This option would mean no extra payments to the EU.
I appreciate that the Justice Secretary's decision will be a disappointing conclusion to the constituents who wrote to me about this case, but they can be assured the Government did know the strength of public feeling on this issue.
The Justice Sec concluded he can't mount a successful legal challenge against. the PB's decision to release Worboys. I assume he thinks it followed the proper process even if he, as many others feel it reached the wrong conclusion. Judicial review challenges process not outcome.
