I have always maintained consistently, that I won’t support a deal which compromises the Good Friday Agreement. Putting that comcern to one side just to get any deal isn’t the right thing to do

UK wide customs union as outlined in the 2017 manifesto would go a long way to resolving it, I would (and have) voted for that

It makes a number of assumptions; - that the NI assembly functions (it isn't now) - that there will be 'ambitious customs' - that this is simply a trade/customs issues when it is a political one, and as we approach the centenary of Irish Independence that feels a big deal

you do know that Northern Ireland is part of 'this country' too? Its a UK parliament that is meant to make decisions in the interests of the whole country

Reading through the Political Declaration and the NI democratic consent it’s understandable why the DUP couldn’t support this deal. Talk of ‘ambitious customs arrangements’ with no actual detail, locked into close relationship with the EU (and Ireland by its membership).

Pleased to see a Deal has been recommended for approval. It would be wonderful for MPs who will vote on it to see it along with an impact assessment. Thanks.

Our public sector workers are the foundation of this country. It’s been a tough decade of austerity, but our frontline has fought on to provide decent public services

This is where hate and division leads. Shocking examples of hate crimes in Greater Manchester (and that won’t be anything like the actual volume of online hate and unreported incidents are taken into account).

Peaceful protest is an important part of our democracy. Attempts to stop working people travelling (on public transport) is counter productive and will only serve to harm public support. Both of those points should be common-sense.

I hope MPs are afforded time to fully structinise whatever Deal may come back, in particular a full assessment of its economic, security and regulatory impact at the very least.

There is one thing about the working classes, we know the value of work and the importance of work -the reason we are not having an election is that we do not trust this Prime Minister any more than the Queen trusts this prime minister says
