Quote of the day

From The Guardian (here):
The Brexiters have won the referendum but seem to have little idea of what to do after victory.
Do they want access to the EU single market or not? We have heard endless claims that the UK, armed with a bigger economy and greater negotiating clout, can secure a better deal than Switzerland, Norway or Canada. But nobody has agreed what this model might be. A degree of vagueness was inevitable, but there is a world of difference between constructive ambiguity and not having any concrete negotiating principles.
But access to the single market implies some acceptance of free movement of labour.  Which is presumably why no-one on the Leave side is prepared to face up to the difficult choices.
