The Idea Of Another Six Months Before The Uk Leaves Eu Would Be Quite Wrong

This week, Parliament faces some real Brexit choices.

One choice is whether to demand that the Government seeks a Norway-style deal.

Norway isn’t a member of the EU.

But it agrees to accept all their rules; including free movement; and pays into the EU every year.

But, as a non-member, Norway gets no vote.

Brussels decides the rules.

AFP The proposal from the House of Lords of voting to reject the deal and sending the Government back with a new list of demands to extend the talks would delay Brexit and be quite wrong, says Caroline Flint

Norway abides by them.

That is not what my electors voted for when they voted to leave.

Parliament was always promised a vote on the final.
A “no deal Brexit” would be a disaster.

But one proposal from the Lords, includes voting to reject the deal and sending the Government back with a new list of demands to extend the talks – delaying Brexit.

After two years of talks, the idea of another six months or a year, before the UK leaves would be quite wrong.

And if Exit Day is delayed beyond March 2019, we would have to elect new MEPs in May to a European Parliament we voted to leave.

Crazy.
