With less than a week to go until formal discussion with the EU begin, the likes of Nicola Sturgeon and William Hague have openly called for a cross-party approach.

The reason? Because each party has a completely different vision of how Brexit should unfold.

“They are so far apart in what they want it would be absolutely impossible and a waste of everyone’s time.”
