Our manifesto explains:
The United Kingdom is embarking upon another era in our centuries-old story. We are leaving the European Union. We want to ensure our departure is smooth and orderly and to agree a deep and special partnership with the 27 remaining member states.
In leaving the European Union, we have chosen a truly global role for Britain. To strike trade deals with old friends and new partners and take a leading position in the world to defend British interests, we must be strong and united.
This begins with our determination to defend the integrity of the United Kingdom and to strengthen the Union, bringing the peoples of the United Kingdom together.
My own articles on the EU may be found here, including this article setting out why we need to leave the Customs Union and the EEA. There is also my article for City AM on financial services, We need a pragmatic approach to leaving the European Union, which relates to this financial services briefing by the Legatum Institute Special Trade Commission.
