Thank you for your clarification, Mr. Atkinson. All I will say is that my sense of dĂ(c)jĂ vu has now increased.

I have enjoyed the debate today hugely; I always enjoy it when the Conservative party splits very openly in front of our eyes. I have also enjoyed the revelation by the hon. Member for Taunton, when he said that it was difficult to put himself in the mindset of someone who served in the European Parliament. I do not know whether we should draw anything from that comment about his relationship with his leader.
