Not sure anyone is going to be happy at the end of this.

Panel of 15 leave voters doing a feature this morning.

Lots of the usual naivety on display but what surprised me was not a single person would have been happy with a deal seeing remaining in the single market.

Government is doing a poor jo but it is a near impossible task.

That's probably because economics had nothing to do with the way they voted. Got to get rid of Johnny Foreigner and 'take back control' picard.

Quite right too. Senior figures on both sides of the referendum debate acknowledged that a vote to leave would be a vote to end our membership of the Single Market.

Wasn't the stereotypical crowd (5 live production) some reasonably constructed points that pbviously fell apart when tested at all (one person adamant about sovereignty thy couldn't name one eu law they disagreed with).

A lot of it was about the reaction they got and break down in family relationships over voting leave etc

The point about sovereignty is about asserting greater democratic control over law-makers; not necessarily disagreeing with specific aspects of EU law (which is another matter).

Not when said person was complaining about all the eu laws that effect our everyday lives - then can't name one.

If sovereignty as a concept is the issue rather than the actual practical implications that actually effect he country and our lives then their isn't much hope for us.

Anyway the point isn't to rerun the referendum debate, the arguments have been heard time and time again.

The point is (a relatively small cohort) of fairly sensible leave voters have expressed their reasons for voting leave and their desires for a post exit Britain - they aren't realistic and they won't be happy with any deal that the government deliver - a difficult position for the government.

Yes, just gave it a short listen.

The BBC seem to use the same audience for most of their radio shows about Brexit; I know one lady who was on the 5Live programme this morning, this is the fourth or fifth time she has been on BBC radio discussing Brexit in the last year.

I just didn't see the point in demonstrating the mistruths/inconsistencies in the leave ideology - they know about them and don't care.

Ah yes, the out of context quotes which were brilliantly taken apart by Andrew Neil.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHzmCHcM7cA

And then try these:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fDn0MvcHQ4
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUI5A1Gd5D0
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsgX9J51ruw&feature=youtu.be&t=2m56s

So that's Cameron, Benn, Javid, Osborne, Farage, Gove, Johnson, and Leadsom all stating - during the referendum campaign - that a vote to Leave would be a vote to leave the Single Market.

Both official campaigns stated clearly and repeatedly that a vote to Leave would be a vote to end our membership of the Single Market.

A hardcore minority of Remainers are pretending this wasn't the case, in spite of all the evidence. This is the same revisionist history that has led to the terms 'soft' Brexit and 'hard' Brexit, which are works of fiction in an effort to split the Leave camp.

Just goes to show that neither campaign had the foggiest idea of what leaving the EU actually meant.

How the public was expected to make an informed decision on this, I have no idea.

Again slightly off track, during this piece I was talking about after the panel rejected membership of the single market a hypothetical agreement with zero tariff trade but maintaining voluntary alignment with regulations. This too was rejected by most.

Will anyone really be happy post exit with what the government come up with? Personally I don't think so.

If she rides it out could be some political capital in it.

Labour will either have to vote in favour of the deal the government have negotiated or be the party who went against the democratic will of the people and stopped the eu exit.

The eu will give the uk the deal it wants, parliament rejecting it won't result in the negotiators obtaining a better deal.

So Theresa May has sacked Tory Vice Chairman Stephen Hammond for voting for the ammendment, whereas “n****r in the woodpile” Anne Marie Morris is quietly reinstated. Nice to see where her morals lie.

Up until the ref campaign, there were Leavers who wanted to stay in the single market. Never been anything for the customs union. The referendum changed that paradigm. Hannan wants a Swiss solution, out of the formal single market, out of the customs union, but participates in the parts of the Single Market it wants to.

As for last night, well under Parliamentary democracy last night's vote can in effect be reversed at Report Stage - I suspect it will in some shape or form.

Which raises the question- what is the deal that we apparently want and when is the cabinet actually going to get around to discussing it? Is it as top secret as all those impact assessments.

(Or are they just waiting for Dacre to tell them what it should be...)

Oh and talking of assessments, this one is from the House of Lords. It is more about the consequences of no deal but you get the feeling whoever wrote this is not a fan of Dave lying Davies.

The Swiss solution is not what you want at all if you want sovereign decisions and control of your borders. Plus it costs too much for the amount of benefits it's brings and the administration of it is a nightmare. It's unlikely the EU will let us have one such and even if they do, it'll be much worse than the one we have already. Especially as we'd be tied into adherence to all the treaties in which failure of one treaty would nullify all thr other treaties. Leave doesn't know what it wants and doesn't understand how much our unique position in the EU benefitted us. Don't be surprised when we either capitulate completely or start cutting public services and accrued pensions to make up the shortfall.

May will be remembered for losing her majority against a guy that had only 42 mps covering 96 shadow briefs and was probably the most unelectable opposition leader in history.

To think Brexit will change anything is staggering....

The Tories showed themselves in true colours over the recent rebellious vote. Phillip Hammond was sacked from his post because he dared to vote for something he believed in. Now this just emphasises what voting Tory for Scots is like. A vote for them and all they are programmed to vote for is what Westminster Tory party ordains regardless of what effect it has on that Mp's constituents.

Stephen Hammond was removed as Vice-Chairman for London. Calls for deselection, but do wonder if that will just make those likely to rebel, just rebel anyway.

With Oliver Letwin teaming up with Leave voting Tories by putting down a compromise amendment on leaving date (leaving date is on the Bill, but it can be changed), and given he has suggested Clause 9 now be deleted post Grieve amendment, I suspect he could put down an amendment at Report to do just that.

After rather a lot of nonsense, the Brexit sectoral analysis (or whatever you want to call them) have finally been published. They include such glorious insights as "The HE (Higher Education) sector has different economic characteristics to manufacturing and other services related sectors in the UK economy". What they don't contain is any impact analysis.

I think Paul Waugh sums it up rather well here
https://twitter.com/paulwaugh/status/943818474270482437

Also, this was according to Davis information so sensitive that it couldn't possibly be published as it would reveal too much to the EU?? Really?? Pathetic.

Tbh it seems that there are more people annoyed that people supposedly wanted passport colours changed than the amount who wanted the colour changed in the first place.

I mean, contract is up, they were going to be updated anyway even if we had stayed in, so why not. Doesn't keep me up at night thinking about it.

Oh no no no. It's quite easily grasped by most people. It's just that brexiteers are selling it as some sort of Brexit victory when it's nothing of the sort. This is kinda funny to us. To be fair, you've won and we lost so why don't you go enjoy your victory and leave us to our grim humour?

Can I ask why you haven't commented on the shoddy reports coming out of the Brexit department? I mean this is less than schoolboys could come up with, are you not concerned that Brexit is going to be a worse disaster than anyone ever thought? Even if you think some good will come of it aren't you worried about the bungling going on in government?

Perhaps it is grasped by most people, but to see prominent MPs and some journalistic outlets peddle more fake news...it just isn’t helpful. Very few Brexiteers are championing this as a great victory.

Nobody has ‘won’ or ‘lost’. A majority did vote for the UK to regain its independence, leave the failing EU and become a properly self-governing nation again. But that was just the end of the beginning of the struggle.

I’ve long made my feelings clear about:

1) How useless the Tory Party and their governance is.
2) How pro-EU the Tory Party is.
3) How I never expect Brexit to happen with the present government.
4) How the benefits of Brexit are without limit, and how there are no upsides to being in the EU.
5) How truly useless the Tory Party is.

If having blue passports was so important it could have been changed at any stage. Burgundy was an agreement not a legal requirement.

Would be a massive own goal if they don't renew the de la due contract after all the bleating about it.

Theresa may wrote:The UK passport is an expression of our independence and sovereignty – symbolising our citizenship of a proud, great nation. That's why we have announced that the iconic #bluepassport will return after we leave the European Union in 2019.

Yougov...19 Dec

Should we stay in or leave EU ??

Stay 39 -5
Leave 48 +2

Evidence shows that now the UK is getting on with leaving.. the Public want the Govt to get on with it.

Probably explains Labour's stance of fence sitting....

Just goes to show that the public can be somewhat educationally challenged...

Very true. Here's some more evidence, which is interesting given some of the nonsense spoken about re. reasons for leaving the EU:

Stop it with your "statistics" and "evidence". They aren't welcome in this argument.
