Trade with the EU is not going to stop because we leave Brexit. We trade with the US under WTO rules and May has already given the EU what it wants on services.

What May says and what May does have proved to be very different. “No deal is better than a bad deal””,Nothing’s changed”after the social care fiasco - remember those.

Rants are rants not reasoned judgement and there are two proposals from JRM that will, if they survive, discomfort the EU greatly and, by extension, Grieve, Soubry etc. A separate VAT regime is not one of them. The requirement for the EU to collect and pass on U.K. tariffs as the quid pro quo for us collecting and handing over theirs is the most obvious and the second is the obligation in May to refuse all deals that put NI in a separate Customs agreement from the rest of the U.K. which neuters the backstop proposal. Both of those are worthwhile - and we still have a separate VAT regime to the rest of the EU. The internet is your firiend if you want to look it up.

We won’t know you are right unless there is a leadership challenge. Even if you are, enough might vote against May to make her position untenable. Thatcher won on the first ballot of her leadership challenge but the result was so close she had to step down. The leadership rules ha e since changed but the principle hasn’t.

Finally, someone has to show the voters that they are interested in de,ivering the Brexit people voted for. If the Brexit supporters in parliament won’t do that, who will. All the is happening at the moment is that the voters think it’s total chaos.

A broken clock is right twice a day and you miss out on both of those occasions every day. The Tory Party is heading for electoral oblivion because it is refusing to embrace Brexit in the vain pursuit of a “deep and special”relationship thatthe EU is totally disinterested in.

The Remainers will remain the problem with trying to enact a Brexit that makes sense whilst the Leavers continue to try and be back seat drivers. The only way this has a happy ending is for a leadership contest in which a Leave supporter emerges triumphant.

We already have a separate VAT regime with many more items zero rated or exempt than applies in the rest of the EU. They pay VAT on food; we don’t. All JRM is trying to do, if you can take off your blinkers, is preserve that difference. Nothing to do with them changing their rules.

There is a long way to go even on the customs proposals even if May accepts JRM’s proposals. The HoL will probably reject JRM’s amendments and May will be expected to honour the amendments a second time. I wouldn’t put money on that happening.

All this is happening because the Tory Brexiteers are too frit to put up a leadership candidate and execute Brexit properly.
