As I understand it, Norway:
- has full access to the Single Market. This requires regulatory alignment with the EU but gives no formal role in setting those regulations
- has free movement of people with the EU
- pays into the EU budget – but receives nothing back such as regional aid, farm subsidies
- does not participate in the Common Fisheries Policy or Common Agricultural policy.
Fishing and agriculture aside, I’m not clear how a ‘Norway-style’ relationship would differ from full membership.

Makes you wonder why Norway doesn't apply for full membership

Being Norway and its traditional fishing industry, I suspect they did not want to give that up.

On the face of it, they are two mutually incompatible positions.

Out of genuine interest, would you like a second referendum where you could make your preference known?

I can see where gle1975 is coming from. They want out so voted for the party that is 100% behind that.

I would settle for the Norway option but much prefer to stay in. Norway option is better than being out but a very poor option.

How do people feel about Alistair Campbell being kicked out of the Labour Party. OK he made a tactical decision to make a one off non Labour vote so he could stand by his beliefs.

But holocaust denier members and those who have made anti semitic posts online are merely suspended.

Looks more like get rid of those who are not hard left Momentum aka Militant members that a democratic decision.

He admitted/volunteered the info on national TV = Case proved, Instant removal, no investigation
Others suspended for investigation followed by removal where proved. Investigation sometimes takes time where evidence is gathered etc.

Where is the issue?

The issue is how some who are not Momemtum/Militant supporters get treated in comparison to those who are
