Point of order, bungalow = Bengal low. A type of house built for the British in the style of a Bengali cottage.

He doesn't have to go anywhere for the Indian experience if he lives in a bungalow.

If Lofty Biggot wants a trade deal he does. Dawn of the new Raj.

The EU single market is the absolute pinnacle of regulatory cooperation. It melds economies together so tightly that any service, good, person or money can flow freely, as if national boundaries did not exist.

Britain has said that it wants to leave this market. Outside it, there are three basic approaches to cooperation: harmonisation, equivalence and mutual recognition. Harmonisation agrees the exact same standards and how to reach them. Equivalence is slightly different. It means you have the same standards, but allow for different ways of reaching them. Mutual recognition is a much less significant tool. These are agreements, usually between government bodies, which basically say that they trust each other to do the tests for their respective countries.

Here’s the problem. Brits have been told for nearly two years now that they can have everything: total control and total free trade. They can’t. Britain will have to make important decisions about these approaches, representing different levels of control for different levels of free trade. Mutual recognition hardly gives up any control, but then it hardly gets you any trade. Harmonisation gets you lots of trade, but gives up lots of control. There is no total control, outside perhaps of North Korea.

The truth is Britain is pretty much alone in the direction it is taking. The rest of the world is consolidating regulatory arrangements, not severing them.

If we really are intent on Brexit, we need to start talking realistically. How much control do we want and what kind of control should it be? How many jobs are we prepared to lose as a result? Will we sign up to European standards or American ones?

Britain should be concerned by the possibility of moving onto the next stage of Brexit talks. Because when we do, EU negotiators will ask: “What do you want?”

So there is the challenge Brexit dudes - what do you want?

We made the Single Market. The UK. Under Thatcher. We wanted those rules. The EU is bound by them unless they remake the Treaties or lots of Directives (some of which we pushed for). So your solution has got to be a lot better than something like haggling in a souk.
Not sure what this means but I'm confident we will do ok outside the EU

What model are you going to back up that hunch with?

Harmonisation, equivalence or mutual recognition?

We will be poorer than we would have been, less influencial than we are now and, if we are to strike a trade deal with the US, we'll have weaker non-consumer friendly regulations that most people will not be happy with. But yes, we'll do ok.

The suggestion that this justifies an act of national self-harm is bizarre. The promise was that we were going to do a lot better than ok.

Liam Fox has accused UK firms of hampering his ability to cut Brexit trade deals because they don’t want to trade overseas. As Tory International Trade Sec he is supposed to promote UK concerns not trash them!

On the upside, it is the end of the Tory party as we know it ... they will never get over the madness of Brexit
