    MPs can vote us back in to the Customs Union after Brexit.

    MPs can vote Britain back into EU customs union after Brexit without new legislation, minister reveals.

    Small print of Bill before Commons will alarm Brexiteers as a back door to remaining within the trading rules - despite EU withdrawal.

    Get the rest of this story from The Independent HERE




    That's quite a surprise after all of the discussions that have been going about under Brexit.

    Surely this would have to go to a Commons vote before it could happen ?

    Not only that, but the twenty seven members of the EU that are left would have to get their heads together and allow that to happen.

    Yes, the British negotiators in the Brexit talks know too well that it will only take one of the member states voting down the British process to make fools out of the likes of David Davis.

    Yes, that is called a veto, and it is a powerful weapon to use in such complicated processes.

    Too right Angie.

    Such actions are going to be well into the future as there are many hills still to climb just to stay with the process.
