  15. 'Long-term economic damage'

    Today Programme

    BBC Radio 4

    Former attorney general Dominic Grieve says the terms of the draft withdrawal agreement need to be put to the British public.

    "As this is going to be pretty irrevocable...and it is going to do us a great deal of long-term economic damage, in those circumstances I would like the reassurance that this is what the public really wants," he tells Today.

    "If this is really what they want, so be it, but if not, we would do much better to remain in the EU because we are not going to do better outside, on these terms, or indeed on any terms."

  16. 'It's almost certain I'll vote against it'

    Former attorney general Dominic Grieve, who has called for another EU referendum, says the draft withdrawal deal "is a very sad deal, because what we're ending up with is a third rate form of Brexit".

    He tells the Today programme: "Indeed there is no good form of Brexit, as far as I'm concerned, because unless you believe - as my colleague Jacob Rees-Mogg believes - in some sort of fantasy version of the UK's economic future, there was never going to be a form of Brexit that is better than staying in the EU.

    "I think it's almost certain I'll vote against it," he said, although he added that he still intended to have a further discussion with other Conservative MPs before making his final decision.
