The Brexit talks have so far been like the first half of last night's England vs Belgium World Cup match: lots of faffing about and some yellow card worthy scuffles, but by the end of it nothing has changed.
Why have the Tories failed so pathetically so far, coffee?

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

The latest news from People's Vote:
Chaos and confusion reign in advance of Friday’s Cabinet meeting at Chequers. Ministers are fighting like ferrets in a sack. According to the Sunday Times, no fewer than 20 Tory MPs are positioning to take over from Theresa May if she’s ousted as prime minister.

With only 15 weeks left until the October summit where a final deal was originally supposed to be agreed, is the Cabinet finally going to to face up to some of the realities of Brexit? The BBC says the prime minister has come up with a new customs plan after the government’s previous two versions were both found wanting - but the broadcaster doesn’t know what it is.

Meanwhile, Oliver Robbins, the top civil servant on Brexit, is telling the Cabinet there is “no chance” of a bespoke red, white and blue Brexit because time has virtually run out.. Instead, the choice for a future trade deal will be effectively the Canada or Norway model.

The splits within the Cabinet are becoming spectacularly public. Michael Gove physically ripped up a paper on future customs options.

The MPs who would be PM are in an awkward spot; a challenge would use up valuable time, but if May knows she won’t face a challenge until after Brexit she will be relatively free to chart her own course. What’s more, her friends have briefed she intends to fight any attempt to oust her.

Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922 committee of backbench Conservative MPs, is one of those appealing for calm, warning that continued public divisions could derail Brexit talks - or worse, by giving “an impression of division to the country”, lead to a Corbyn government. That’s like saying “not in front of the children”, after the parents have already had a screaming row at the dinner table.

There is, of course, a chance that in the pursuit of continued cohesion May decides to keep on fudging it. The two sides in the Cabinet face a choice between two bad Brexits; damaging the economy; or following the EU’s rules without a vote on them- or perhaps even some middle road where we damage both our prosperity and our power.

With all possible Brexit deals riddled with flaws, and the Cabinet unable to unite behind any, all the more reason for a People’s Vote on whatever the outcome.

State of negotiations

Even if the Cabinet can decide which model they would like to ask the EU for, we will still be a long way from a deal. Some have already been ‘ruled out’ by the bloc, including any arrangement where the UK is in the single market for goods without signing up to free movement or the single market for services.

Mind you, we won’t know for sure the EU’s position until our government actually says what it wants. It should stop wasting time and get on with the job of governing.

Crime squad examines Banks’ Russian links

The National Crime Agency, the UK’s elite crime-fighting squad, is examining evidence of new Russian links to Arron Banks after receiving a cache of his emails, according to The Sunday Times. The Leave.EU boss was offered three Russian business deals during the Brexit campaign including a gold mine venture in Guinea, west Africa, and a stake in Russia’s state-controlled diamond miner, the paper says.

Banks, who bankrolled the Brexit campaign fronted by Nigel Farage, told The Sunday Times he had not taken part in any of the deals. “Let [the National Crime Agency] investigate. All of this just makes me look like an international man of mystery.”

Corbyn and Labour

A YouGov survey carried out for the People's Vote campaign has found that a majority of Unite members now support a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal: news that comes just as the biggest union in Britain and Ireland is about to decide its policy on Brexit at its Brighton conference. A clear majority of Unite members also believecontinued smooth trade is more important than reducing migration.

Elsewhere on the left, a Momentum petition to support a People’s Vote is gaining support, and its adoption as policy may soon be voted on inside the Labour pressure group.

With pressure growing among his supporters, it’s in Corbyn’s interest to back giving voters the final say on Brexit. There is, of course, a democractic case for doing so too: the people’s party should be in favour of a People’s Vote.

Today's email from People's Vote:
The Cabinet drama over Brexit is descending from shambles to farce.

It has often been said that ministers are wasting time talking among themselves rather than negotiating with the EU. It’s now even worse than that. They aren’t even talking among themselves.

Theresa May has supposedly concocted a “third” wheeze to deal with customs post-Brexit after the government’s two previous cockamamie ideas were squished. But she didn’t bother to tell her fellow Cabinet ministers - even David Davis, the Brexit secretary - what her new brilliant idea is.

The Brexiters smell a rat. They are worried they will be presented with the plan at the last minute before a supposedly crunch summit at the prime minister’s country estate on Friday and be bounced into agreeing it.

While this would certainly be May’s style, the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg has an alternative theory: the reason ministers haven’t been told about the third wheeze may be because it doesn’t yet exist.

Meanwhile, the prime minister is heading off to see the Dutch prime minister today and Germany’s Angela Merkel on Thursday to talk about her Brexit plans. But Downing Street is insisting that she won’t tell them about her new wheeze. Which, of course, raises the question of why on earth she’s wasting diplomatic capital by making the trips in the first place.

Fast forward to Friday and May’s best argument with her Cabinet will probably be that, if they don’t back whatever scheme she magics up, MPs will force us to stay in a customs union when the Customs Bill returns to the House of Commons - on July 17, according to The Times. But whichever way you cut it, given that the new wheeze won’t be ready in time, that’s probably what we are going to end up doing for many years to come.

And don’t forget. Once we get to Friday, we will still only have ministers talking among themselves. The EU has made clear time and again that we have to come up with a viable solution to keep the Irish border open. That won’t just mean a customs union indefinitely; Northern Ireland will have to follow EU rules on industrial and agricultural goods too.

The snag, of course, is that this still wouldn't be enough to prevent border controls between Northern Ireland and Great Britain. Which is why the prime minister wants the whole UK to align some of its rules with the EU - but only until the end of 2021. And the problem with that is that the other countries are not prepared to leave Ireland hanging out to dry after 2021.

May seems to have another scheme to “solve” that problem - a permanent single market in goods - and she apparently wants to agree that at Chequers. But the EU is saying we can’t have a single market in goods unless we have one in labour and services too. Many pro-Europeans would say that’s precisely what we want - and we may as well stay in the EU too as we will then get to make the rules rather than be a rule-taker. But fat chance of this government agreeing all that.

So at the end of the day, we have a prime minister concocting schemes she doesn’t tell her ministers about which won’t fly with the EU anyway - and many of her ministers plotting to knife her. Meanwhile, the economy dies a death by a thousand cuts and nobody is looking after the national interest. Get a grip.

Time and patience running out for business

Business is tearing its hair out because of the time-wasting. The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has published 23 Brexit questions still in need of answers, covering customs, regulation, worker mobility, and so on. Companies are no better informed today than on the day after the referendum. The BCC’s director general describes the list as “practical, real-world concerns of businesses of every size and sector, in every part of the UK”.

Every day uncertainty continues, investment is delayed. But there’s little chance of the BCC getting its answers fast. Did the public really vote for a botched Brexit that stifles the economy?

The chair of the Treasury Select Committee has written to the Treasury, Bank of England and Financial Conduct Authority demanding assessments of the impact of whatever Brexit deal is negotiated and of a no-deal scenario - comparing both to staying in the bloc. Nicky Morgan says MPs need to be “properly informed” before any parliamentary vote on the final deal. Quite so. But the need for information doesn’t stop at Westminster. Let the people see the true costs of Brexit - and then decide whether they want it.

mmm, I don't think that the older among us ever thought of the EU as a shining knight of transparency and propriety; trouble is that Hannan's (and your) decisions to highlight this show the desperation with which Brexit is justified. It seems to be a fairly general truth that many if most politicians, however noble and sincere their intentions in terms of improving the lot of others, will always be tempted to feather their own nests
