specific position on the customs Union and single market membership are, in my view, failing to fully appreciate that such a shift would completely change the discourse in unintended ways and could totally upset and reshape public opinion away from its current, if slow, movement towards a more pro remain position. in the current context. Our actions are part of the narrative and not just a response to it. I think this article captures very well that it is May who is on the rack and we do not currently need to nail our colours to any polar mast. The unravelling of May and the hard Brexit agenda has a way to go yet. We remain well placed IMHO

Brexit doesn't have enough votes to get through the Commons unless it includes a deal that keeps the UK aligned with the customs union and the single market.
