Having calmed down slightly I now realise John McDonnells position of a Deal/no deal #Brexit ref if they can't force a GE is unrealistic independent.co.uk/news/uk/politi…
1/ chequers shows there is unlikely to be a deal acceptable to the EU and the europhobes in the tory party #Brexit so its likely that no deal #Brexit is the only available #Brexit and therefore there is unlikely to be a choice of deal or no deal to start with
2/ if May does comeback with a deal it will need labour support to pass Labour would have to choose between backing it thus forgoing any chance of bringing down the government and thus the GE they say they want and angering the labour movement or voting it down
3/ if labour vote down any Brexit deal however it doesn't follow that there would be a GE why would the tories want to risk one after 2017 and it would mean that no deal would be the only #Brexit
4/if a GE happened Corbyn and McDonnell would be fighting a #Brexit election on a platform of ignoring the views of most of the Labour movement and voters on a promise of doing what differently exactly?
5/moderate Tories won't want another GE but might back a second ref.this would need about 30 tory Mps to make this happen much more likely than a GE
6/ a referendum could only occur if labour vote down both deal or no deal so would be in the absurd position of offering a choice of options they had themselves rejected #Brexit
7/ so Corbyn and McDonnell end up either accepting no deal something they swore they won't do or offering a #Brexit no deal or remain referendum
