Will TIG MPs still be smiling when they have to flesh out their policy positions?

Like all political parties, or, in this case, a proto-party, the Independent Group (TIG) of MPs has a formal, manifesto-style policy on Europe, which is vague and soothing and can unite them.

However, TIG are travelling light on formal commitments and on detail.

All they say on their official website about Brexit is this: “We believe in maintaining strong alliances with our closest European and international allies on trade, regulation, defence, security and counter-terrorism.”
