Instead of listening to what Scotland can’t do without Brussels, I want our government to start talking about the opportunities on our doorstep.

Neil O’Brien: Policies for a new Britain – in which the central point for new Tory MPs is the moors on the edge of Sheffield
Can have a bold enough economic policy that people in these newly gained seats can see the difference in five years’ time?
Michael Gove: I have shown in government that I deliver. And as Prime Minister, I will deliver Brexit – and stop Corbyn.
My experience – mastering those detailed briefs, winning support, driving through reform – leaves me in the best position to achieve Brexit.
Anthony Browne: Policy Gains from Brexit 1) We need more debate about what to do when we take back control
Most of the sound and furore about making it happen is all about means, but there has been virtually no debate about the ends.
Precisely because it would be a rather unnecessary addition to the current deal, it is hard to argue that the proposal would be a disaster for Brexit.
Robert Halfon: If you don’t like the backstop and you want a Brexit deal done quickly, there’s only one answer: Common Market 2.0
I voted for the Prime Minister’s deal today. But the Commons didn’t – and we now all need a positive alternative.
We have secured legally-binding changes which address MPs’ concerns about the need to protect the UK from being stuck in the backstop against its will.
At the moment, there are many areas where farmers cannot use new technologies. These will increasingly feed not only our consumers but also the world’s poorest ones.
Henry Newman: Norway Plus, Common Market 2.0. Call it whatever you like, it could basically leave us as a non-voting EU member
It amounts to wishful thinking, not a workable, sustainable answer. And it’s not as easy to implement as some of its advocates make out.
Plus: We must be the Party for social housing as well as home ownership. And: why don’t we trumpet our history of social reform?
Were it not for the backstop, May’s deal would get over the line – with support from an overwhelming majority of Conservatives, including us.
Norway-to-Canada was one thing. Norway-plus-the-backstop is another. It is inferior even to the Prime Minister’s proposed deal.
Chris Grayling: Here at Transport, we’re getting ready for Brexit – whatever happens. But here’s why I’m backing May’s deal.
If I had been offered this before the referendum in 2016, I would have seen it as a much better alternative to the status quo inside the EU.
George Bridges: The Prime Minister’s Brexit deal. The choice facing Parliament is compromise or chaos.
If you want to be sure that Brexit happens, however much you might dislike this plan, there is only one course of action – vote for it.
They would plunge into unknown territory that is most likely to lead to our exit being delayed, diluted – or even ditched altogether.
