Daniel Hannan: I want to support May’s plan. But I can’t. It proposes a way of leaving the EU that’s exactly the wrong way round.
Instead of leaving the Customs Union but retaining chunks of the Single Market – we shall end up staying in the Customs Union but leaving most of the Single Market.
And her enemies are divided: can the No Dealers and the People’s Voters combine to defeat her?
It would be a good match. Former Remainer v the former Chair of Vote Leave. No gender war element, either. How about it, Downing Street?
Joel Davidson and Amir Sadjady: Treat claims of treason with disdain. As Leavers, we wholeheartedly back this agreement. Here’s why.
By remaining in a customs arrangement which retains high standards and open access, it will be good for London – and the rest of the country too.
By a 20-point margin, voters as a whole said MPs should “vote to reject the agreement even if it is not clear what the outcome would then be”.
May says Brexit may be “somehow delayed”. How so, if it can’t be without her consent – that’s to say, the Government’s?

There has been a tendency to suppose that because Britain’s power has declined in relative terms they must have become totally useless.

We need to get back to our focus, governing for the people. They are fed up with Brexit and we are running out of time
So he’s left presumably unwilling to sell May’s deal on any other basis that it’s bad…but that the alternative is worse.
May’s Deal 1) Andrew Feldman – Party members must back it and her. Let’s not give Corbyn the crisis he craves.
If he can’t get an early election, he would take a disorderly departure from the EU, leading to a recession – and to victory at a later date.
But although the Prime Minister looked calm, Nigel Dodds, parliamentary leader of the DUP, did not.
She dodges a direct question on whether Parliament with have the sovereign right to withdraw unilaterally from any backstop.
