No Way Norway

The Single Market and the Customs Union, the EEA, the "Norway Option", the "Switzerland Option", call it what you will. It would be the only thing worse than staying in the EU. To be a rule-taker but not a rule-maker is to be a colony. To pay but have no say is to be a satrapy.

In a second referendum, between that and plain old Remain, then, since one of them would be bound to win, even plain old Remain would be preferable. We would resume the struggle the next day, as our people did on the day after the 1975 referendum, and as they did on the day after the 1983 General Election. But the key is to prevent that situation from arising in the first place.

There is going to be another hung Parliament. We need our people to hold the balance of power in it. I need £10,000 in order to stand for Parliament with any chance of winning.
