Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Brexiteers must shout "BETRAYAL" as otherwise their little ruse to "take back control" (for themselves) will be uncovered. Somebody else has to take the blame for the obvious disparity between their promises and reality,
I was under the impression that hardline Brexiteers can shout whatever illogical nonsense they like. If they just back this thing to get over the line (they should take a hint from Gove there), then they will have Brexit - lifelong dream achieved. Also, because of its 'impurities' they will still have things to moan about after Brexit and a lot of chances to blow things up again. To me there doesn't seem to be a big risk of exposure or embarassment. It would require shame. So just go for Brexit. That's what I would do.

Meanwhile, the mainline leaver who is not particularly interested in the details, will just hold onto "Leave means leave!" Everything else being secondary. Oh look not much has changed! Project fear refuted! Time to turn off Brexit for the next decade while the long-term agreement is negotiated.

Schengen is toast!
