Where now on the EU? Are we heading for a Norwegian style deal?

Posted on

Three quick thoughts.

First, it has to be concluded the EU obsession is over. UKIP has gone.

Second, this vote has to be seen as a rejection of hard Brexit.

Third, the night must be a vote for the Single Market.

If there is anything to say tonight it is that if any EU consensus might be built between the parties at this moment it would have to be around a Norwegian style agreement with us out of membership but working closely with the EU within the Single Market. I can't see another plausible platform right now.

I did not imagine writing that this morning.
