Custom Made

The Customs Union is in fact the "free trade area" for which those who voted Yes in 1975 imagine that they were solely voting. The Single Market, meanwhile, was of course created by Margaret Thatcher. They have both been thoroughly pernicious from the start.

Four amendments need to be tabled, and put to the vote on the floor of the House of Commons. To secure the extra £350 million per week for the National Health Service. To restore the United Kingdom's historic fishing rights of 200 miles or to the median line, in accordance with international law. To seek a trade agreement with each of the BRICS countries while remaining thoroughly critical of all five of their current Governments. And to seek the integration into the Belt and Road Initiative of all four parts of the United Kingdom, of all nine English regions, and of all of the British Overseas Territories and the Crown Dependencies.

These ought all to be proposed as a single amendment to the Liaison Committee's motion today. But that has not happened, because there is no one there to make it happen. Make it happen. You know what you have to do, brothers and sisters. You know what you have to do.
