Don't bet your last farthing she won't get some trivial concession from the EU and come back to the house and squeak it through

As the phrase goes 'a week is a long time in politics' and she's been counted as dead in the water before and survived

It's not like the massed dozens of UKIPers marching in London yesterday put any pressure on her
Well, whatever nevermind

The cynic in me says less a laughing stock and more a duplicitous politician almost on the scale of Blair...





Ukip was screwed the moment they allowed Tommy Robinson to join, the numbers showing at the protest march have proven that.

If I'm right and May either pushes through her brexit in name only and as long as the EU allow it deal or agrees to a second referendum I can see something similar to the Yellowjacket protests happening over here.
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

As the European Court of Justice has ruled that the UK can unilaterally revoke its withdrawal from the EU I fear that will be the result with a second referendum being called.

It would fit with everything we have seen so far Mort, drag out a pathetic 'attempt' at negotiation which would clearly screw us over until May 'gives in to pressure' and calls a second referendum by which time planned media coverage has shifted enough opinion to tip the balance. We end up still stuck in the EU but having lost the rebate and the veto.

I still think that's the less likely route forward but its chances have certainly increased.  Faced with the polls as they are I can see the Rees-Mogg ERG deciding to vote for the deal while planning to oust May mid 2019 and then try to renege on the deal.

As for the court ruling I was surprised but having read the judgement I can see the logic (it all hinges on the word 'intention').  What does it change?  Not much but might increase the chances of an extension to the Article 50
Well, whatever nevermind

Yes, I can see that happening although once we're in the transition period, which I assume is legally binding, reneging may be a problem.

Yep as I understand it we'd be in all sorts of legal distress but it's what the ERG think now and next that'll matter when this actually does get to a vote in the house
