Nicky Morgan: Our report on Alternative Arrangements holds the key to leaving the EU at last – and avoiding a general election
Those preparing to block No Deal should add our final report, to be released this week, to their summer reading list.
Our future Conservative Party leadership needs to address quickly and effectively the problems which have led to the latter’s rise.
We need to re-discover our ability to spot the problems our constituents are facing and do something about them.
Any candidate who focuses solely on leaving the EU will hit a brick wall with the Parliamentary Party.
Nicky Morgan: Our country needs One Nation Toryism more than ever. And we will measure leadership candidates against its ideals.
I am clear that if the Party decides to focus its appeal mainly towards Brexit Party supporters, our demise will be swift.
Nicky Morgan: If Tory MPs want May not to rely on Labour, then they know what they must do. Pass her deal as it stands.
We have just 17 days from tomorrow now to do what voters told us to do on the doorsteps last Thursday – namely, ‘get Brexit sorted’.
Nicky Morgan: Why the Northern Ireland backstop need not be permanent – and leave no hard border when it ends
The EU has already opened the door to starting discussions about such alternative arrangements the minute that the Withdrawal Agreement is approved.
Nicky Morgan: Our One Nation group of MPs is fighting back against an attempt to hijack the Conservative Party
We are not a party within a party. We simply want to remind our fellow citizens that there are Conservative MPs who want to heal, not perpetuate, divisions.
Nicky Morgan: Indicative votes. If the Commons can’t reach a Brexit decision, beware a second referendum.
Whatever happens, we will need new leadership for the second stage of any agreement – namely, talks on the Political Declaration.
Nicky Morgan: Five questions for MPs this week. But whatever their answers, they should vote for the Withdrawal Agreement.
We can bring the withdrawal phase to a close. And can then get on with thinking about how to, and who should, negotiate the future relationship.
In over six hours of meetings, officials tried to make the tyres fall off the Malthouse Compromise, and couldn’t do so.
Nicky Morgan: Country before Party? It’s a false choice. The country needs the governing party to deliver on Brexit.
The best outcome is for the Government and its partners to deliver the majority verdict of the referendum and of the last election.
Nicky Morgan: This Brexit logjam is holding up positive politics. Now the Prime Minister must break it.
The way to head these moves off – and this development is anticipated in the Cooper Bill which I am supporting – is to put an agreement in place.
Nicky Morgan: Imperfect, certainly. But May’s plan avoids the twin perils of No Deal and No Brexit. The Commons should back it.
Supporting the deal would also prevent several other things – such as the possibibility of a truly socialist government taking over.
