@SamuelMarcLowe 1/ Here's the interview in full, with @SamuelMarcLowe & Martin Howe QC. 'We already do the majority of our trade around the world on WTO terms...' Actually we do most of our trade through the EU (SM, EU-FTAs and MRAs with US/China/Aus). Am I correct @SamuelMarcLowe & @IanaDreyer?
@SamuelMarcLowe @IanaDreyer 2/ 'When I first read this report, that came out earlier today, I was amazed anyone serious whether a politician or QC, would want their name anywhere near it, because it's embarrassing.' @SamuelMarcLowe
@SamuelMarcLowe @IanaDreyer 3/ Yup it's all really's all about tariffs. Note not a word about Non Tariff Barriers from Martin Howe. Bet @CoppetainPU & @hhesterm would have something to say about this clip?

@RemainiacsCast @IanDunt @alexisconran @ayeshahazarika @AdamWagner1 @sturdyAlex @Nndroid 1/ A few clips from this week's @RemainiacsCast. 'The worst thing you can do, is shove it in someone's face and say, "Ha, you fell for it." The truth is that anyone can fall for it at the right time.' @alexisconran on the bait/switch psychology at play in the Brexit ref.
@RemainiacsCast @IanDunt @alexisconran @ayeshahazarika @AdamWagner1 @sturdyAlex @Nndroid 2/ 'Authoritarians hate institutions. They stop you from having a strongman – and that’s why they trash them.' @IanDunt
@RemainiacsCast @IanDunt @alexisconran @ayeshahazarika @AdamWagner1 @sturdyAlex @Nndroid 3/ 'Say anything with enough confidence & enough people will believe you. It doesn't matter what you're saying, but say it with authority & confidence and the people who want to believe you will.' @alexisconran on just one of the con techniques that intertwined the Brexit ref.

1/ A few clips from yesterday's DExEU SC with Philip Rycroft, Head of UK Gov Group & Permanent Sec, DExEU. @hilarybennmp : 'Is the govt making provisions for portaloos on the M20 in the event of long queues?'*After March 2019*
2/ Very moot question from @hilarybennmp about the govt's use of non disclosure agreements in preparation for Brexit.
3/ 'Is the witness able to tell us when he thinks a decision has to be made about a no-deal agreement?' Peter Bone. What follows is a master class of obfuscation & evasion.

1/ A few clips from DExEU SC (11/07/18). 'To try to have similar outcomes but without all of those standards & processes & institutions & co-operation networks, you are asking an enormous amount from the member states.' Michael Dougan on MRA/Equivalence re any future UK-EU TA.
2/ '...where you see more of the discussion on potential relocation of certain
jobs and offshoring on to the EU market from some of the American,
Japanese and Swiss banks. *who are based here b\c of the UK's access to the SM*' @AllieRenison
3/ This is a lovely explainer on how trade disputes between the UK and the EU are currently dealt with. @livuni_EULaw (Michael Dougan).

1/ A few clips from this week's sitting of DExEU - am session - focusing on the impact Brexit will have on the UK's service sector. @hilarybennmp: 'What will be the consequences of a no-deal *outcome* for your members?' Adam Minns (Executive Director, CBA) shares some thoughts.
2/ Same question to @huwevans71 (Director General, Association of British Insurers). 'In many countries - in the EU - if you're not authorised to transact business there, it is illegal to pay a claim.'
3/ @stephencrabb4 asks how difficult it will be *for the UK govt* to get the EU to accept enchanced equivalence. 'I think we can all see that it's going to be an uphill task to persuade the EU27...' @City_McGuinness @huwevans71
