So Boris Johnson wants the UK to form an “outer-tier” of the EU with countries like Norway and Switzerland. He has called for a “pared down” relationship with the EU.
And I want the end of every rainbow to land in my garden so I can collect all the pots of gold from the leprechauns. And peanut M&Ms to be free in every retail outlet.
The problem is neither is possible. The acquis communautaire dictates you are either in the EU or you’re not. There is no EU-lite choice. It is not an option. To suggest there could be such an option, in clear violation of the EU’s very construct and agenda is as much a myth as the rainbow’s leprechauns and free M&M’s I am calling for.
