“We are combining withdrawal from the single market and the customs union with this great new globalised future, which offers tremendous opportunities for us,” he said.

“Apparently you follow the rabbit down the hole and you emerge in a wonderland where suddenly countries around the world are queueing up to give us trading advantages and access to their markets that previously we had never been able to achieve as part of the European Union.

“Nice men like President Trump and President Erdogan are just impatient to abandon their normal protectionism and give us access. Don’t let me be too cynical, I hope that is right. I want the best outcome for the United Kingdom from this process.


“No doubt there is, somewhere, a hatter holding a tea party with a dormouse.”

“He (Enoch Powell) probably would find it amazing to believe that his party have become Eurosceptic and rather mildly anti-immigrant in a very strange way,” Mr Clarke said. “Well, I’m afraid that on that I haven’t followed them and I don’t intend to do so.

“I admire my colleagues who can suddenly become enthusiastic Brexiteers, having seen a light on the road to Damascus on the day that the vote was cast, but I am afraid that light has been denied me.”

Alex Salmond
SNP, Gordon, former first minister

“The consequences of the bill go much further than the secretary of state is telling us. Is not the reason why the government find themselves in a position of such abasement to President Trump that they have decided to abandon the high ground of the single marketplace, without so much as a negotiating word being spoken?”
