At the heart of the disagreement between “People’s Vote” campaigners and the Norway Plus supporters is whether the 2016 result is accepted or not.

Nicky Morgan: The only credible alternative plan is Norway Plus. And that may well be what Parliament ends up supporting.
But it could take the ruling out of all other options before we get there. And if MPs ends up reaching a consensus view, then the Government will have to adopt it.
Nicky Morgan: If arch-Brexiteers sink this agreement, they will drive many Conservative MPs to back a second referendum
My conversations with Party members and constituents have provided an almost consistent message that the Prime Minister should be supported.
Nicky Morgan: The Budget – and a Government that failed to listen to the country over problem gambling
We need to be alive to adding to the impression that the fixing of a social harm can wait a few months while we find a way to replace lost revenue.
Nicky Morgan: The tea room avoided. Local fundraisers curtailed. Colleagues suggesting the deselection of others. How Brexit is tearing our Party apart.
We must bind up our wounds and work together again as one.
Levels of trust between Numbers 10 and 11 Downing Street may be low, but the latter holds the key to helping create an economy and society that works for everyone.
There is no Commons majority for no deal, for a Canada deal mark two, or at the moment for a second referendum. But there is a majority for EFTA/EEA.
Nicky Morgan: May’s coming conference speech. We must see the woman who danced in Africa – not the PMQs version
The Prime Minister should speak over the heads of Party members and the media to the people that she most identifies with: middle of the road voters.
It is madness to think that our leaders aren’t entitled to go on holiday and gain a bit of perspective.
Seven points to reflect on during the coming weeks, including this: the centre ground of British politics is vacant.
Nicky Morgan: Once again, we split over Europe. Once again, we undermine our leader. We Conservatives are set to repeat the same failed cycle. Will we never learn?
We are re-proving that ‘we learn from history that we do not learn from history’.
Nicky Morgan: If Cabinet Ministers aren’t prepared to listen to business, they should consider their position
Saying “f**k business” is the kind of lack of understanding I’d expect from our Marxist-sympathising Shadow Chancellor – not from a Conservative Foreign Secretary.
Nicky Morgan: Chope’s upskirting ban veto, and no-deal hard Brexiteers – fellow travellers in the campaign to wreck modernisation
It says it all, really, that an older male Tory MP should object to outlawing a sexual crime which makes use of twenty-first century technology.
Nicky Morgan: Women on boards. We need fair access – not positive discrimination. And no more evasive excuses.
“Not enough senior women”…” “Not enough interested women”… “All the good ones have been snapped up”… “We already have one”… “No vacancies”…
The Government should consider setting up a domestic policy Cabinet sub-committee to help alleviate the Brexit bandwidth problem.
