Deal or No deal

1 min read

Would I vote for this alleged 'deal'?

No.

To do so would be to endorse it. It gains us nothing but confirms the loss of everything that mattered. Our service sector - banking and insurance especially - is being destroyed even though it was 80% of our GDP, and without a rules of origin agreement our goods will also have serious future problems.

To vote against would not even risk a 'no deal' as Johnson has the numbers to ensure it goes through. The Tories own this, voting with them lets them share that shame. Plus 'no deal is better than a bad deal' isn't it?

With this 'deal' the pressure to rejoin will be suppressed. I'd rather it wasn't.
