What is the Norway model / EEA / EFTA?
(And why it isn’t Brexit)
Brexit wrecker MP is misinformed, again
Another simple explainer from the Facts4EU.Org Team
Every six months or so, the question of membership of the ‘EEA’ and 'EFTA' and using ‘the Norway model’ is raised as a possible route to Brexit. Yesterday it was the turn of former minister Nick Boles MP, in an interview with the excellent Andrew Neil on the BBC.

Who actually voted for this outrageous ‘deal’?
Last night 202 MPs voted for a deal which would have placed the UK in indefinite servitude to the EU, laws being made for us with no say over our affairs, a lien being placed over part of the UK’s territory, only a hope and a prayer of a trade deal sometime in the future, and massive payments for the privilege.
For many it is hard to imagine a worse state for a supposedly-sovereign nation than being in the EU. After two and a half years of premiership, Mrs May achieved that, with her disastrous ‘Withdrawal Agreement’.
Worse still, 202 MPs (196 Con, 3 Lab, 3 Ind) voted for this monstrosity. We thought you would like to see if your MP is on that list.

Most MPs have forgotten that it was democracy that got them elected in the first place
A Brexit Facts4EU.Org editorial
For a moment, put aside all arguments about the economy, trade, just-in-time supply chains, ports, and the rest.
The current debacle in Westminster comes down to one thing: democracy.
Either MPs respect the democratic decision of the British people on 23 June 2016, or they don’t. We did not vote to instruct them to re-run the Referendum campaign for two-and-a-half years because they didn’t like the result. We did not instruct them to keep as much of EU membership as possible because of their wild fantasies about how the EU is actually good for us, if we only knew it.

Late EU “concession”, pro-Remain Speaker will break more rules, Remain side will take more control of Parliament
The PM will flourish a document, possibly as early as this evening but more likely to be tomorrow, purporting to contain further concessions on the draft Withdrawal Agreement (WA). This will be all fluff and the text of the WA will remain the same.
Nevertheless the Prime Minister will pretend that it somehow removes or severely mitigates the vexatious problem of the ‘Backstop’ – the mechanism which turns Northern Ireland into a protectorate of the Irish Republic and locks the UK into servitude to the EU indefinitely.
