There was lots of good "no deal" action on Twitter, too. There was this thread from Ciaran McGonagle on how the "no deal" threat doesn't square up with May's ambition for a "global Britain":
Pete North was on fine form too with these two threads, on the viability (or lack thereof) of the Conservative's negotiating strategy and the need to port over EU external trade deals in order to maintain regulatory harmonisation:
Finally, Ian Dunt wrote a great thread on why the argument that we must go into negotiations whilst prepared to walk away doesn't boost our hand, a position I increasingly agree with. His analogy is that asking a friend for a sandwich or you'll jump off a cliff doesn't give you leverage, it just makes you look like an unreasonable lunatic.
Dan Hannan tries to make the opposite argument here:
I understand the argument here, but I think it's too simplistic. Instead, imagine going to a car dealer in a nice car and trying to negotiate for a similarly nice car whilst saying "if you don't give me the new nice car I'm going to trade mine in for the worst one you have".
