"With May as Prime Minister there can be no Brexit deal"
I stand by that statement
🇪🇺 is not going to make the backstop time limited or allow 🇬🇧 to unilaterally withdraw it. So the deal on the table is essentially unchanged
- replace May, and give someone else a go
- find some other way out of the present #Brexit stasis
Even Bill Cash won't no confidence the government:
⛔️ May and her cabinet seem to have settled on playing for time, hoping they can some pull a rabbit out of the hat by sometime in January
That seems to be more out of hope than expectation
❓ Withdrawing the Article 50 notification 📩
❓ Holding a #PeoplesVote 🗳
I do not include No Deal here, because there is a clear majority in the Commons against that. And post-ECJ judgment, rescinding is easier than extending.
The Tories don't want it, but that still does not mean it will not happen.
❌ No Deal
❌ May's Deal
❌ No confidence-ing the Government
❌ A General Election
Rescinding Article 50 is ❓, and is v hard to communicate
Once May returns from #EUCO with v little, and with the Brexit ⏰ still ticking, clamour for this will grow.
This week's developments, I think, make such a course of action more likely.
