Boris: Do Not Underestimate the Deep Sense of Personal Responsibility I Feel for Brexit

Punchy stuff…

Boris: Britain Must Bin The Backstop

Boris’s Leadership Guarantee

“Can you give me an absolute categorical promise here and now that you will not stand against Theresa May?”

“I will give you an absolute categorical promise that I will continue to advocate what I think is the most sensible plan to get out of this mess.”

The Vote Is Going Ahead

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay has confirmed that the meaningful vote is going ahead on Tuesday, contrary to some speculation… Guido is less certain…

DUP: Tories Should Uphold Their Side of the Confidence and Supply Agreement

“We’re abiding by our side of the bargain… to deliver control of our laws borders and money for the UK, and also that the UK would leave the European Union as one United Kingdom. If Theresa May wishes to go down a different path from that then she can’t count on our support on the Brexit deal that she has but forward, obviously, and it obviously has consequences…”

Raab: Amber Rudd’s Comments Were Sexist

Raab made a cutting attack on Amber Rudd’s “The men at Westminster seem to flounce out quite a lot” comments speaking to Sky’s Sophy Ridge this morning.

“Amber does this every now and and again, she did it during the referendum when she personalised an attack on Boris. I’m not sure if that’s aimed at me. It sounded a bit sexist to me.”

The shadow leadership election is well and truly underway…

PM Did Not Listen to Raab’s Advice

“I give my advice and it’s either taken or it’s not taken.”

“So it wasn’t taken…”

“Well I want to be careful because I respect the fact that there’s a hierarchy”

McVey Would Run For Leader If People Asked Her

“If people asked me, then of course you’d say… of course you’d give it serious concern and do it…”

Esther McVey: I Did Not Cry

 

Gove: Backstop Uncomfortable But Gives UK Competitive Advantage

Gove is right, there are some elements of the backstop that do mean the UK has an advantage over the EU. Guido is yet to be convinced that the positive Level Playing Field conditions in the backstop make up for the abhorrent Single Customs Territory and constitutional splicing also lurking in this far from ideal agreement…

Gardiner: The EU Will Re-Negotiate This Deal

“We’ve seen time and time again, whether it’s the Lisbon Treaty or in other treaties, the EU, when forced back into a corner, always says ‘okay we’ll have another look at it.'”

Boles: EEA Only Way if Deal Voted Down

The pretend-Brexit ‘Norway Option’ perhaps even with a Customs Union tacked on is becoming increasingly popular in Parliament…

Starmer: We Will Start Contempt Proceedings

“If they don’t produce [the Government’s Brexit deal legal advice in full] tomorrow then we will start contempt proceedings.”

Starmer: Confidence Motion ‘Inevitable’ if Deal Doesn’t Pass

“If she has lost a vote of this significance after two years of negotiations then it is right that there should be a general election.”

Hunt: This Isn’t a Perfect Deal

Blair on Second Referendum: This Time It Would Be For Real

“Both the Remain campaign, and the Leave champai… campaign should jointly agree that this vote is final, doesn’t matter how marginal it is, it’s final. Once this is resolved then that’s it for a generation.”

Err, isn’t that what happened in 2016?

Arlene Foster May Review Confidence and Supply Agreement

Strongest words yet from the DUP leader…

IDS Will Not Vote For May’s Deal

Lisa Nandy Will Not Vote For May’s Deal

Brokenshire: No Deal Preparations Continuing ‘At Pace’

“The Chancellor announced an extra £500 million in the Budget a few weeks ago, which takes our total commitment to no deal preparations since 2016 up to £4 billion, 106 technical notices that have already been published, and therefore how we will continue in parallel to continue that no deal preparations are maintained.”

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
