Now we have a suggestion that we change the label on EU law and call it UK law.

Surely that’s no different to changing the label on a can of beans. I suppose it does clear up what Brexit means.

The danger, as I see it, is that once the Clause 50 button is pressed, we will be in a one-way street to ‘out’, whether conditions – if any – are granted us by the EU.
