(1) support a referendum (if the deal goes through)
(2) oppose A50 extending into July.
(3) oppose May's deal in all circs
(4) oppose chaotic no deal
(1) & (2) are incompatible.
(3) & (4) incompatible with (2)
This gives them no policy/route to oppose no deal in practice. Except negotiating new deal (without an extension in which to do that)
Thats incompatible if (2) *and* (3).
Need either longer extension A50 to do that, *or* accept this negotiated Withdrawal Agreement deal, but shift political declaration & post-Brexit transition talks on future
Except you could not put it to a referendum without the longer extension that Emily T is opposing
Against No Deal
Against Delay (beyond July)
It is possible to take any two of those positions, but it will be impossible (within two months) to maintain all three of them.
- a referendum, with Remain option, pre-Brexit
- negotiating a different Labour Brexit
(except doing so post-Brexit, having accepted this Withdrawal Agreement)
Rules in two options:
Leave with no deal
