In a speech today the Brexit Secretary set out the no-deal Brexit papers.
No one will be surprised that the Brexit Secretary was hot and flustered today. What he set out means a disaster for British families and British jobs.
We also have yet further confirmation that there is no prospect that a plan will be delivered in the next six months, not least on the Northern Ireland border and post-Brexit customs arrangements.
No one should kid themselves that there is a good deal.
Over a million UK citizens living across the EU had no say in 2016. They now face the prospect of losing access to their pensions and bank accounts as a result of Theresa May's disastrous negotiations.
Given the nightmare consequences Brexit will have for their lives, they deserve an opportunity to stop this mess. They, like all British citizens, deserve a final say on the deal with an opportunity to remain in the EU.
