If you exclude any plan that starts, "first, build a time machine" then unlikely to be any politically viable alternative to fudge, within 8-12 weeks (Oct/Nov).
- making a different speech in Oct 2016 re red lines
- doing much more pre-A50, and/or serving it later
- or developing a UK plan much more quickly after sending it
- not holding 2017GE, or getting a different result.
- Lab taking a different position over last 24 months & that having changed context (eg GE2017, or public attitudes now).
But I don't see/hear viable alternatives that do not depend on principal actors having acted differently since 2016
If orderly fudge prevails, the core question would become can we use 2019-2020 much more constructively than 2016-19.
A diet of endless fudge becomes unpalatable.
But do also support the Getting Our Act Together Quickly Afterwards faction.
The Transitional Fudgers, not our Fudge Forever temporary allies. @pmdfoster
