Sky Views: Remainers can no longer take yes for an answer
Lewis GoodallThis week, for the first time since 2016, a credible path to remain has opened. But remainers wont take it. Because the zeal for which they once chided the Brexiters has swallowed them up too. Now, they can’t take yes for answer. My #SkyViews
Sky Views: We can't prepare for no deal nearly as much as you might think
Lewis GoodallThere have been many myths in the Brexit saga. The idea that we can adequately “prepare” for a no deal is the biggest one yet. It’s like a collision with an oncoming vehicle. You can brace for impact but you’re still going to get hurt. My #SkyViews.
Lewis GoodallHere is the piece, in case you missed it. The idea you can spend your way out of the changes no deal brings is absurd.
Sky Views: No dealers are winning because they want it more
Lewis GoodallHow are we on the verge of a no deal?
Because the no dealers are willing to do absolutely anything necessary to obtain it. Its opponents aren’t.
Could it be stopped? Sure. Will it? Not unless remainers learn from their foes. My #SkyViews.
After years in the doldrums the by-election marks a turning point for the party that backs remain.
Lewis GoodallWhat does the #BreconByElection mean? A true Lib Dem fightback which changes the calculus of politics for both main parties. My take on the most important by election for a long while.
US congress ‘will not endorse trade deal’ with Britain if peace agreement is weakened
Lewis GoodallThe PM and President Trump had a phone call tonight and agreed they want a trade deal after Brexit.
But Congress must approve it. And yet again today @SpeakerPelosi and the Irish American caucus have said that if it’s no deal it ain’t gonna happen.
Ex-Labour PM says Tory leader frontrunner’s anti-European Conservatism is anti-Scottish
Lewis GoodallI would say there is a greater than 50% chance Brown is correct about this. That in itself is remarkable. What is more remarkable still is that most leading Conservatives seem not to care.
So often it felt as if the person who most needed to watch her speech was the prime minister herself, writes Lewis Goodall.
Lewis GoodallTheresa May bemoans the absence of compromise and the rise of a British populism. But if she wants to explain the decline of one and the rise of the other she could do worse than look in the mirror.
My take on her legacy and a final extraordinary speech.
Not long ago, hegemony was within their grasp but the party used its moment of strength to indulge its greatest weaknesses.
Lewis GoodallThe number of candidates in the Tory leadership race speaks not of talent but of total decay. Worse, there is barely a Brexit solution between them, just reheated Mayism and the same dead end gambits. My piece on the Conservative Party on the brink.
Lewis GoodallIn years to come, historians will ask, what on Earth became of the Conservative Party. In 2015 hegemony was in their grasp. Yet they spent their moment of greatest strength, indulging their greatest weaknesses. This contest reeks of total decay. My piece.
Alastair Campbell candidly talks about his experience living with depression.
Lewis GoodallHeading back to work now but spent the morning catching up with stellar @campbellclaret doc on his life with depression. It’s a brave thing to have done. I’ve a close family member with similar experiences and struck a deep chord. Well worth your time.
The Brexit Party is barely six months old but it has already caused an upheaval in British politics, and is widely predicted to command the biggest share of ...
Lewis GoodallFor the last 6 weeks I've followed the @brexit_partyuk, from its very first rally to its last. The Tory party might be about to transform. If so, it started with the rise of this new force: an assault on British political life. My special report.
Lewis GoodallAlmost whatever May says, whatever happens on Sunday, Farage has already won. He’s claimed a second Tory prime minister in a row, he’s defined what Brexit is and what it cannot be and once again the Conservatives will morph in his image. My piece.
Lewis GoodallVery sad news about the death of Brian Walden. Son of a glass worker, Birmingham MP, forensic interviewer- one of the broadcast greats. Can’t think of many who could deliver fascinating, straight down the barrel, half ad libbed lectures on PMs. Stellar.
Lewis Goodall says Britain's true populist revolt is yet to come - even if Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn strike a Brexit deal.
Lewis GoodallThe referendum wasn’t our real populist revolt. That is probably yet to come. Even if a deal is agreed between May and Corbyn-especially if it’s agreed- this is only the beginning. My piece.
Get on the electoral register so you can vote in elections and referendums.
Lewis GoodallToday is the deadline for registration for the European elections. Don’t listen to the cynics: these elections will be of historic importance, one way or the other. However you intend to vote, or if you haven’t decided yet, just make sure you register.

Lewis GoodallI’ve been following @Nigel_Farage’s @brexitparty_uk from their first rallies. The thing which strikes me most, is how effectively he’s stolen the mantle of change. His message is now bigger than Brexit, it’s about national renewal. My piece from Brum.
A Home Office presentation says a solution which would keep the border open without checkpoints is a distant prospect.
Lewis GoodallNEW: I've obtained a Home Office presentation which suggests it could be *2030* before a tech solution to the Irish border is possible.
-This isn't in place *anywhere* in the world.
-It would involve 28 govt agencies.
-Would be expensive.
Lewis GoodallIf @Nigel_Farage wins the European elections there will be no People's Vote. My piece on why the remainers need a strategy to beat him- and fast. Unbelievably, they don't seem to have one.
