Meaningful Vote

Thank you for your email.

I shall continue to vote for the PM’s deal if it comes back – because I think that it actually represents a perfectly reasonable way forward.

The Political Declaration which it contains may well ultimately lead to a final treaty very similar to (or even identical to) the Norway+ arrangement that I would prefer to see.  But the main thing is that the completion of her deal would prevent the horrors of a no deal exit.

If her deal fails ultimately to obtain a majority, then I shall be trying to help create a cross-party majority for an alternative deal that can incorporate more definition (and probably a customs union and a stronger single market participation in the Political Declaration).

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
