My reply to @TomTugendhat & @AllieRenison on why we must #ChuckChequers if we want to avoid Norway+ & have an independent trade policy.

I see @NickBoles has hijacked the Better Brexit tag used by those advocating WTO option ( ). Typical Boles, the man who encouraged Gove to knife Boris in 2016. /1 That said, step 1 of @NickBoles plan is to reject the disastrous Withdrawal Agreement that has been proposed - which is absolutely right and something almost everybody, Leavers & Remainers, should agree on. /2

Just seen this tweet from @DavidHenigUK . Let's think about this from another angle. THREAD Should / could UK negotiate a better trade relationship with EU than WTO ?

Spotlight on "No Deal" & pharma / medicines today. Astra Zeneca are clearly going to be ready for No Deal. MSM Remainer-in-chief Faisal Islam seems unhappy about this. Typically, Faisal manages to mangle the details. Astra are transferring their EMA approvals to an EU/EEA based agency.

Important article. Art 50 talks will fail if UK is expected to sacrifice NI & £39bn w/o g'tee of future trade agreement and solution to NI border. Important question then is "What happens next?"… Saying No to unacceptable Withdrawl Agreement does not have to mean the end of talking to EU or any prospect of working arrangements. "How" we say No is important.

This attack on Prof Collins & WTO is in itself deeply misleading & skewed. THREAD: 1) Collins is right to dismiss "EU leaders like to threaten us with hints that our exports would be unsellable in the EU". Countries all round the world sell into EU/SM.
