I’ve been getting a lot of emails about the Brexit proposals – a huge number. All give the same advice about how I should vote when Theresa May’s deal comes to Parliament. But all have opposing arguments to support the same conclusion.

If you want a second referendum, in the hope that we cancel Brexit, MPs must vote against the deal.

If you want a granite hard, WTO terms Brexit, then MPs must vote down the deal, the default outcome being a hard Brexit.

If you want EFTA or EEA (the Norwegian model), then vote no (forgetting Norway has already said no to UK in EFTA, by the way).

Those wanting a UK/EU customs union (prohibiting any of our own trade deals), then the deal must go.

I’ve heard reheated arguments about the unelected Brussels bureaucracy (they forget it is answerable to the EU Parliament, elected every four years; the council of ministers, compiled of nationally elected ministers; and the commission, appointed by elected governments).

Even the rules we abide by were ratified by Gordon Brown under the Lisbon Treaty, and he led a democratically elected government.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Brexit was never going to be simple.

Anyone can pick holes in the deal – there are plenty of opportunities.

I am completely sympathetic to those concerns and they are not without justification.

But if we crash out without a deal, the sudden change in the way our economy works will affect everyone. It may not be for long – a few months, maybe a year or two.

But we are not properly prepared for it. Armchair economists assure me it will be fine, to stop worrying.

But the CBI, the automotive sector, the aerospace sector, supermarkets and a whole host of organisations say it will be difficult to manage, that it may cause chaos, that our food supply will be disrupted (we import around half of what we eat, and export a little under half we produce).

So, am I prepared to risk the prosperity of my constituents?

Possibly (knowingly?) harming their job security and their businesses?

Run the risk, no matter how small, that we cannot get enough food into the country.

And reject a compromise deal that delivers most of what is expected of Brexit?

The answer is no and that is why I will be supporting the deal on offer.
