Calming down slightly I now realise that John McDonnells position of a referendum on no #Brexit deal or rubbish #Brexit if he cant get a General election is unrealistic independent.co.uk/news/uk/politi…
1/ Chequers was as far as May could go and this was unacceptable to the EU. It was also regarded as rubbish by leavers and remainers alike being simply a worse version of the Status quo
2/ any #Brexit deal Acceptable to the EU which remainers could live with is unlikely to be Acceptable to the Tory europhobes and therefore no deal #Brexit is likely to be the only #Brexit available
3/ no deal #Brexit is likely to be voted down by parliament and labour have said no deal is unacceptable so we areleft with a choice of no deal or remain
4/ a General election is unlikely as the tories will not want to risk one having got their fingers burned in 2017 but even if one happened McDonnell is proposing a #Brexit election on a platform of ignoring #Brexit views of most labour members unions & a majority of labour voters
Corbyn and McDonnell would be fighting a GE on the platform of alledgedly being better at negotiating a #Brexit deal than the tories with no evidence of how they would deliver any of it
5/ moderate Tories wont want a GE but might be prepared to support a peoplesvote. It would only need about 30 tory MPs to make this happen
6/ if by chance May brought a #Brexit deal back Labour could back it thus forgoing a chance to force the GE Corbyn and McDonnell want and infuriating the labour movement or voting it down but then what?
7/ Corbyn and McDonnell be in a position of offering a #Brexit referendum between a deal and no deal choices they themselves had voted down an absurd position
8/ so before the end of this year if they have rejected all the #Brexit options what choice will they have but allowing brexit to happen thus infuriating their own party or offering a straight no deal or remain 2nd ref which some tories might back.
