The Brexit bounce continues. HM Treasury has today released forecasts of the economists it follows, as it does every month. Last time, there was a flurry of downgrades and forecasts of an immediate recession. Now, these forecasts are being torn up by everyone, including by the FT (although you can bet the FT won’t report on the upgrades as eagerly as it did the downgrades).

The principal purpose of the #VoteLeaveUK campaign is to invoke Article 50 followed by the repeal of the European Communities Act 1972.
A small number of Brexiteers have the strategy to withdraw from the EU wrong. Those who argue for the repeal of the ECA before Article 50 is invoked have no grasp of the realpolitik or indeed constitutional law, let alone real-world strategy.
To pursue a course of repealing the ECA before Article 50 is invoked is doomed to failure. 453 Remain MPs and a majority in the House of Lords have already declared an intention to stop Brexit by voting down Article 50. This is why Theresa May has circumvented them with executive authority open to all Prime Ministers.

Grammar schools have been dominating the news agenda recently. Prime Minister Theresa May seems to be attempting to facilitate a genuine meritocratic society in education through selection by ability rather than money. However, we were told during the Referendum campaign our education system would collapse if the UK voted to leave the EU. The reality is – this is not happening!

Mark Francois MP BrexitCentral.com, 20th September 2016
Mark Francois has been a Conservative MP since 2001 and represents Rayleigh and Wickford. He has held a number of ministerial and shadow ministerial positions, including serving as Shadow Minister for Europe between 2007 and 2010.
Now that the dust has settled on the 2016 EU Referendum it is worth looking back a few years at the lead in to the plebiscite. I would argue that it was the arrogant way in which Labour handled the 2007-08 Lisbon Treaty in Britain which helped set the conditions for what followed less than a decade later.

Project Fear did not become a self-fulfilling prophecy. But Remain made the legitimate point that a prolonged period of uncertainty could damage the economy. So we should aim to complete Brexit as rapidly as possible.

Telegraph: Theresa May faces rebellion as Tory MPs launch new ‘hard Brexit’ campaign
Theresa May is facing fresh unrest from Eurosceptic Tory MPs who are plotting a major campaign to push her into delivering a “hard Brexit”.
A new group, Leave Means Leave, launches today with the aim of getting the UK out of the EU’s single market, ending the influence of Brussels on British laws, and scrapping European “free movement” migration.

Brussels bureaucrats agree EU army HEADQUARTERS as plans move a step closer
GERMANY and France have moved another step closer to establishing an EU army – with both nations agreeing on a military base.
I hope you are enjoying these daily emails pulling together all you need to know about Brexit in one place, coupled with comment from a range of voices.
Today I’m delighted to be publishing a piece by Lord Owen, the former Labour Foreign Secretary and SDP Leader who campaigned for a Leave vote in the referendum. He offers a deeply critical assessment of the EU’s common defence and security policy and calls for the UK to champion NATO post-Brexit. Also today you can read Rory Broomfield’s call for the Government to reform or exit the European Arrest Warrant.
