    European Economic Area - it contains all the EU members as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. It means they have access to the single market and other bits of the EU but don't get a vote on EU matters. It's a half way house and, IMO, the worst of the 3 possibilities.
    No thanks. That isn't what I or most of the other leavers voted for. I want us to be free to set our own trade deals with other countries without any restrictions.

      Which we could do within The EEA as neither Iceland, Norway or Liechtenstein are within the European Customs Union.

      Other then free movement laws, what laws brought in by the EU would you want changed?
      Generally I don't like the fact the EU can overrule British law and British judgements.

      But if you want some specifics, off the top of my head:

      Free movement of labour law
      The right to be forgotten rule
      Child benefit for migrant workers
      Working time directive
      Fisheries policy
      VAT on energy bills law
      Climate change directive
      Diabetic motorists directive

      But I am pretty sure their ability to do that is restricted by the deals they have with the EU in some way.

      They are rule takers across many areas bound by their participation in the single market and other bodies, yes. Never mind Northern Ireland, the fact is 2.1 million lorries pass through just The Port of Dover every year. We're not leaving the continent of Europe and coming out of every European body, including just the European Customs Union, is going to cause the need for infrastructure for which there is no time, money, space or technology available to implement. Although closer aligned than some want, even Switzerland and Norway outside the customs union have checks and delays on their borders.

      a) Prove it
      b) It doesn't need to be most of them does it? It just needs to be the 2% that makes a majority along with the remainers.

      However, all you're doing is again pointing out the major flaw of the referendum - it wasn't detailed enough.

      Out of interest, how do you know this ? As a leaver I wouldn't have voted to be in the EEA.
      Well for a start you have 48.1% of people who don't want to leave in the first place. Staying in the Single Market has been a key priority for voters in every poll since the referendum about priorities, including over "lowering immigration" and generally EEA comes out as the most popular choice for "what sort of Leave do you want" in all opinion polling.

      Out of interest, which trade deals aren't you happy with at the moment and what specifically about them would you want to change?

      Nope, too busy rejoicing in the Daily Mail switching over to the right side. You've only got the Sun & the Express on your side now.
