They say 24 hours is a long time in politics. They're right.
Traditional, supremely healthy, tasty and good for the environment, Brussels sprouts are one of Mother Nature’s wonderful gifts to the table. It’s time to lift them from their humble status, celebrate their goodness and appreciate them for the super food they really are.
Three broadly pro-European arguments against the notion of 'taking back control' from the 'evil overlords' in Brussels.
People are not defined neatly by one social issue. People who are advantaged in one social category may well also be disadvantaged in another. People are complicated like that. Fight systems, not individuals.
A Ukraine-plus arrangement could therefore be the deal that May is looking for – no European Court of Justice oversight, a trade deal that does not include free movement of people, room for third country agreements and security and defence collaborations. This could achieve most of May’s white paper objectives and appeal to the different factions in her party.
...their opposition to May’s deal is logically inconsistent with their own argument that May has underplayed the UK’s hand. The trade negotiations that will now ensue, if parliament accepts the withdrawal deal, is their chance to prove that the EU does need the UK just as much as the UK needs the EU – and that it’s possible for the UK to secure long-term access to EU markets without undermining its trade policy autonomy.
