We need to win hearts and minds.

It is imperative that fishing waters are reclaimed as per normal international law. This will benefit all of UK with particular reference to Scotland and NI

A program of UK wide infrastructure is necessary such as reinstating the Anglo - Scottish border lines.

The scrapping of EVEL is also necessary and will increase Conservative appeal. Scrapping EVEL can also be a means to rebalance away from excesses of devolution. COVID should be managed centrally as it’s a strategic issue.

No comparison. The UK is a single country - our country.

The EU in contrast is an organisation of sovereign governments like NATO and all with their own diplomats and armed forces.

No comparison with Brexit at all. The EU is an intergovernmental organisation which we joined for a time and left.

The UK in contrast is a single country with a single sovereign.

The right policies will win hearts and minds.

Well that’s why I think the May deal was good. - a customs union in all but name and gave us best of both worlds. We could have become even more attractive in eyes of inward investors as we would be free to undertake more creative policies and yet be in customs union.

But we are where we are. And we must support the integrity of our own county or else the IRA wins - no way.

Where they could be compromise is that the EU undertakes to support the integrity of the United Kingdom - the quid pro is that the UK supports the “ever closer union” aspirations of Rome Treaty and undertakes not to obstruct. After all would cost UK nothing as we are outside.

I voted remain and as part of my trade union executive supported remain campaign.

However is the duty of all sides of the Brexit argument to support HMG in upholding the integrity of the United Kingdom. Any tariffs or restrictions on goods between London and Londonderry is just ridiculous and insufferable.

It is high time that we strengthened the integrity of our country such as building that north channel tunnel so that trains of freight and psssengers can board at Belfast direct for likes of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester - and London.

I voted remain, am member of European Movement and have high respect for Monseur Barnier.

However the concept of any tariffs or restrictions within the country’s internal trade as between London and Londonderry is just bang out of order.

And to say that food supplies could be banned between GB and NI has the darkest of historical connotations.

We need this bill without amendment. Can’t ssy fairer then that.

That’s why I think in many ways the May deal was inadvertently the better option. The back stop was all UK and thus secured integrity of the Union. At same time UK could regain fishing waters and develop more creative policies in other areas.

For this reason many thought that we had best of both words. Free of many EU shackles but still within the customs union and hence perhaps even more attractive to business as gateway into Europe.

We are one country. No need for impediments to internal UK trade.

To say that goods from London to Londonderry should be declared is an IRA terrorist agenda. So no way.

Either revert to the all UK wide backstop as per Mays’s Deal or just get rid of backstop altogether.

I voted remain - no apology.

However there is no need for a border down the Irish Sea which compromises the integrity of the United Kingdom.

If companies wished to evade the EU continental border are they seriously going to take their goods to NI and thus be quite the opposite direction of continental Europe

A way to offset the decline of the “Pret a Manger” factor is to stimulate the economy in other areas like allow for more mineral extraction. Builders need more materials.

Allow the expansion of Stansted, Gatwick, Heathrow and Manston.

And drop the job destroying carbon levy
