The issue is one of the most divisive in the ongoing Protocol negotiations, after the UK set a red line that the ECJ would have no involvement in policing trade disputes between both sides after a deal is reached.
Brexiteers worry that the ECJ would not be a neutral arbiter in any future disagreement between the UK and EU, and that its power would represent everything the Brexit vote tried to remove.
The polling also sends a clear message to Sir Keir Starmer — that any softening of the Labour Party’s Brexit position will spell disaster for its strategy to win back the Red Wall.
More in Common’s polling sub-group representing Red Wallers said they would be less likely to vote for Sir Keir if he proposed rejoining the single market or customs union at the 2024 election.
Although a substantial proportion of the public (30 per cent) still think rejoining the EU itself would be a good policy, the number appears to be falling as Remainers join the “Make Brexit Work” camp that both Mr Sunak and Sir Keir are trying to capture.
If the latest numbers are anything to go by, they would do well to avoid any European judicial oversight.
A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world.
We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
