The Prime Minister’s speech on Brexit last week was the best I have heard by a British politician in recent memory. It was visionary about our place in the world yet robust and down to earth – a fine example of strong and well-judged strategic thinking.

As the Prime Minister put it, the referendum was ‘a vote to restore our parliamentary democracy, national self-determination and to become even more global and internationalist in action and spirit.’ For too long the EU has had a ‘vice-like’ grip on our sovereignty, trade and immigration.
