The old myth. The problem with Cameron's pre-referendum deal was that he and his goaders failed to understand EU is a rules based and process based regime. And yet, Tories make the same mistake all over again. The madness of dullards.

Brexit is all terribly important, of course, but can please get a new manager?

Am done now. Fascinating to discuss this with the current Attorney General.

Been a pleasure to be with you on your journey from "no foundation at all" via "no tenable foundation" to "interpretable in different ways". Happy to have been of assistance.

Genuinely disappointed in you defending that implicit threat. Far better if you disowned it.

I don't. Indeed, that may one of the first times. Before tweeting the allegation I reread notification letter. I satisfied myself there was no plausible interpretation than it contained a threat. May was signatory of letter. Threat contrary to her statement. Hence: a lie.

‘Jacob Rees-Mogg you're right. You don't need to visit the border... you need to have lived here.’ Belfast-born actor Stephen Rea explores the real impact of Brexit and the uncertainty of the future of the Irish border in a short film written by Clare Dwyer Hogg.

You have shifted to "no tenable foundation" now? An improvement on "no foundation at all", I suppose. Let's see if I can assist you further. So you accept that the letter says there would a serious risk to security cooperation with no agreement?

Looking forward to response to this. The Article 50 letter was an embarrassment. But the implicit threat on security was clumsy and counterproductive. Government supporters should disown such dangerous idiocy, not still be defending it.

Please don't pile in, but you may be interested in this exchange on whether there was any "foundation" for saying that the Article 50 notification contaied an implicit threat on security cooperation.

But for an MP preoccupied with Brexit to have been unaware of the inference Is astonishing.

"In security terms a failure to reach agreement would mean our cooperation in the fight against crime and terrorism would be weakened." You may say that can be interpreted in different ways, but your "no foundation" defence fails. Classic barrister overreach.

But, yes let's look at the letter.

Was that genuinely the first time you had seen that inference? As a MP focused on Brexit, you were unaware of, for example ?
