Aust keen for UK to leave EU customs union

At the scene today were a whole host of Remoaners - including anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller and pro-EU MP Chuka Ummuna.

The UK will "have to have a customs union" with the EU after Brexit, Jeremy Corbyn has said, in remarks indicating a further shift by Labour towards a softer Brexit.

The party's goal is to be "the vehicle for people who feel politically homeless", said James Clarke, one of three co-leaders. However, it's not only airlines that should take action before it's too late. "It's not a done deal".

The bus will be touring the country for eight days, with organisers saying it was paid for by crowdfunding.

The Remain bus figure is based on analysis of leaked government reports predicting that all Brexit scenarios will significantly hit the economy.

"You can see that they want us to exit at the end of the budget period, the Prime Minister is suggesting two years".

The Guardian's Brexit policy editor Dan Roberts points out that Davis may want to consider his own future, as well as Britain's.

Labour said the letter "exposes the deep divisions that run through the heart of this Tory government", and the SNP's Stephen Gethins said: "It is clear from this list of demands that the Tories don't want either a transition deal or a ‎future relationship with the European Union".

Davis added: "The future trade talks will be a negotiation like no other". How much access will Britain have to the bloc's single market?

"The Secretary of State is right to say that the future economic partnership must include a mechanism to manage regulatory co-operation and recognises the ongoing importance and competitiveness in our sector and is clearly in the national interest and the interest of our closest partners in Europe".

Prime Minister Theresa May hopes to seal a deal with the European Union on a transition period in March this year, to offer companies some certainty a year before Britain is due to leave the bloc, and has repeatedly said it should not drag on indefinitely. In reality, it is a load of baloney, but what do I know?

A post-Brexit customs arrangement with the European Union could start with Britain sticking to the same external trade tariffs as the bloc, a senior European lawmaker said on Monday.

James Clarke, another leader of Renew, said its message was getting a warm welcome from voters "disenchanted with the traditional parties for being complicit in our current political shambles".

Renew now claims to have more than 450 applications for stand as candidates for the 650-seat House of Commons. Fast forward a couple of years, and we are a bit over 13 months away from Brexit actually happening.

On Sunday, the shadow foreign secretary, Emily Thornberry, said it seemed inevitable the United Kingdom would have to stay in some sort of customs union after Brexit.

Morgan said: "The government's desire for trade to be as frictionless as possible is right but MPs need now to understand what that really means, and that is why it is important their local businesses have a chance to share their thoughts with us in Westminster".
