The White Paper the Prime Minister reluctantly published ducks many of the difficult questions. Special arrangements for specific industries will be fiendishly difficult to negotiate or administer. Open borders for trade are incompatible with leaving the customs union and the European regulatory framework. Insistence on complete sovereignty from rulings of the European Court of Justice will block continued participation in the extensive network of police cooperation, data sharing and intelligence that has grown up since the end of the Cold War, which relies upon agreed checks on misuse of authority to retain mutual confidence. Brexiteers insist that the people made their decision on June 23rd, and that Parliament has only a minor role to play on how the government interprets that decision. But the devil is always in the detail, and the referendum campaign left the details of leaving the EU undefined. The whole idea of parliamentary democracy is that the government is held to account day by day and week by week, not just by occasional referendums. Whether to stay within the single market, how to maintain security cooperation with our neighbours, how to prevent long queues of people and goods at Britain’s frontiers once we leave the EU, are all vital issues from Britain’s future on which Theresa May and her Government have so far provided incoherent answers." Alibongo: The referendum result is the result of asinine views, most eloquently expressed by that ignoramus on Question Time a year ago, who said 'We want our country back', without any knowledge or thought about what she wanted back or how it could be achieved. It is a harking back to a non-existent time when the working classes were content with their lot, England ruled the Waves and all was well in the world.
