I hope to make some sense with this thought, Madam Deputy Speaker. Thinking of the generational shift, does my hon. Friend not think, as I do, that, in the past, the waters and the skies of Europe were filled with warring air forces and warring navies? Now they are filled with easyJet, Ryanair and low-cost airlines, and with people not thinking twice about darting across the continent, opening up economies and opening up people’s minds. Is it not the case that only the historically illiterate would cheer the ending of such a diplomatic channel?
