You are my MP; you represent me in Parliament.
I believe that M. Barnier has just put the crucial question in a concise form. Yesterday (20th November), Barnier said:
“The UK has chosen to leave the EU. Does it want to stay close to the European model or does it want to gradually move away from it? The UK’s reply to this question will be important and even decisive….”.
That is it in a nutshell. I want regulation and high standards. What do you want? What does Britain want?
According to a good piece in the Guardian, Peter Mandelson added
that many Brexiters would be “very happy for the UK to become a regulatory satellite of the US”, while “some in the present cabinet barely know what a trade negotiation is, let alone why it is desirable”.
Where do you stand? Close to the USA, or close to Europe?
