A few days ago, in response, I believe, to this tweet:
I responded with the following:David John Phipps@ScribblinSeaham
Err, if we did transition to EFTA/EEA why would we need a backstop? Re rule taker in another tweet: Do you deny that that does not apply as EFTA states involved in decision making?
to which the following was received:

Replying to @ScribblinSeaham
1. Customs border. 2. EFTA EEA = rule taker. UK didn’t have much influence even with votes in EU council, EU Parly etc as members. The idea that a bit of pre-legislation consultation but no voting power gives us any influence is for the birds.
