On one side we have the leaderships of the two main parties, both of which are battling their own members and MPs to cobble together a Brexit compromise in the flawed belief that this will allow them to move on to other issues.

“The only way to deliver anything is by ensuring you have your own tribe and your own people with you 100% of the way.

“This is what has to be delivered – not doing a deal with Labour.”
