Morning all.

On the way to and from the newsagent I met the usual small group of parents with kids who hadn't read the communication from school properly and assumed that school was open today...one woman told me she definitely read an email saying it was Monday 7th....which I checked when I got home and of course it said Tuesday 8th...

Apparently Boris has used his weekly column to attack May's plan - yes, I was shocked too. I love Andrew Sparrow's first comment on the extract...

Like many of Johnson’s Brexit assertions, this is, even on the most generous of assessments, questionable.

Tea spilt on laptop Saturday morning (not by me). Hoping it's just the keyboard that's knackered - think might have got away with just that. Time to check nature of 'accidental damage' cover on insurance and hope that I actually named the laptop as a specific valuable item (I think I did). Although my last experience with trying to make an insurance claim for something was so shite I ended up giving up and paying for the thing myself.

We have a nice shiny new building, supposed to have been ready beginning of last December, that we've moved into this morning. Not much works.

Sounds like PM won't be the one answering the Q that Corbyn has been granted in Commons later - all a bit fluid but sounds like No 10 are planning to send someone else

Hilary Benn, the Labour chair of the Commons Brexit committee, asks Barclay to rule out a no-deal Brexit.

Barclay says it is not enough to MPs to be against something. They have to decide what they want. Referring to the letter, signed by more than 200 MPs, urging the government to rule out a no-deal Brexit, he says those MPs favour a variety of alternative options.

Pot, kettle springs to mind.

What was PfY's anagram for Barclay?

He's a good one!

I think I went for "preach absently", but "banters cheaply", "peasantry belch", "patchy enablers" and "herby placentas" all have a certain charm ;-)

I thought Barry Gardiner on Ridge got as close as anyone has to explaining this clearly.

It's really important to keep on emphasising that May has got into her unenviable "hole" by having red lines that were irreconcilable.

One that hasn't been discussed for a while perhaps is the possibility of the UK paying for its special access, which is an impossibility for the ERG brigade.

What exactly would this "special access" be, though? The economic benefit of the single market derives from the four freedoms of movement which turn external markets into one big internal market. You can only either be inside an internal market, which means accepting the four freedoms, or trade with it from the outside. There isn't really anything else. We can get very good terms trading with the EU from the outside, I'm sure, but this is the kind of deal Theresa May appears to be pursuing. I just can't quite see what Labour are offering that is different, except they would actively pursue a customs union, whereas May would just end up in one by default because there is no other acceptable solution to the Irish Border problem. Unless Labour would be willing to commit to the single market, but nothing Corbyn has said suggests this is likely. Without long term promotion of a single market solution it will be hard for Labour to pivot to that position anyway, I would have thought. Besides which, "people's vote" has now got expectations up over somehow being able to remain in the EU, squeezing any single market, soft Brexit compromise out of the picture as far as I can tell.

IMHO the wiggle room is around Freedom of Movement.

It can't be true that you need complete freedom of movement to have the Single Market, because such a thing has never existed.

It's not appealing because of the racist undertones, but restricting freedom of movement is not inherently racist. And IMHO there has to be some compromise somewhere or it's civil war!
