As we stand of the edge of the coming week, I'm struck by how little we know about what's coming:

We've mapped out the Westminster options endlessly and vastly, but there's still very little sense of which is actually going to happen, or even is likely to happen

It's one thing to say that the MV will be lost and something must happen, but another for someone to do that something

Strong impression that a lot of people of are waiting for someone to pop up with a bright idea or a compelling plan

Tip: if they've not done it by now, they're not going to in the next few days.

The options are the options and, yes, they all look problematic

Rather than give my usual comment - that without a consensus on the purpose of Brexit, this impasse will continue - I'll limit myself to saying that enough people need to be indifferent to the fudge that's coming

Even that looks hard, as everyone's worked themselves up into a frenzy about the MV

Plus, there's all the other voting after that to deal with too

The only strategies this week would seem to be forcing others to do one's will or bridge-building

Oddly, May seems to be doing one when I think she be more successful doing the other

If we understand that the Withdrawal Agt is primarily about ending UK membership, and that the EU isn't going to move on the arrangements therein on liabilities, then May might be able to win support by re-opening the Q of the future relationship

That means dumping Chequers (which might not be a big loss), but then gaining the support of anyone who wants to leave with a deal, hard or soft.

I'll not elaborate on this further, mainly because May won't be doing this, since it's not her style and since it'll look like weakness on her part, but it's a thought and we're not much past the realm of thoughts right now

Any way, let's see how the week goes and maybe someone will surprise us with a cunning plan
