This pantomime is all about flushing out the trouble makers to pave the way for another year of fudge. On the basis that the Commons is anti Brexit and we are heading to a second vote to validate the EU in some shape or form.

But there is so much trouble ahead given the rock solid core 40-45% Anti EU support within the UK. There will be so many seriously disgruntled English going around for years to come.

The Union (already a generation away from collapse, as a result of Scotland's position) may not last another decade with the fallout from this within England. Imagine trying to sell 'democracy' there over the next 5 years. Good luck with that.

This is exactly the point.
Anti EU feeling is a bedrock UK political wing since the 'Bastards' and Major around 1992.
We're now 26 years later and they are stronger than ever politically.
The only solution to this is a Brexit, it will not simply go away with a commons vote or a fudge.
Starmer and the neo-libs are completely deluded if they think theres a 'victory' to be had here. There is no chance.

Its important to remember that this startling implosion is about the negotiating stance that the UK govt will take in its approach to Brexit, we're nowhere near a negotiated outcome or resolution to the issue.

I'd agree with that, the Union is toast.

For those mentioning Corbyn, hes played a blinder here.
Hounded by his own neo-liberal wing to 'take a stance' and 'be strong' and 'believe he can fly, believe he can touch the sky' and other such nonsense he has remained schtum and committed to nothing.
At the very least, he has earned his stripes as a consummate politician and a shrewd operator.
He has out manouevred May, and left her to be savaged by her own party while slapping his own internal critics into touch.
A masterful display of patience and definite Prime Ministerial material.

It seems unlikely there's going to be any negotiation on the current proposal. The White Paper will come out on Thursday, and the EU will shoot it down in flames by Monday. The hardline Brexiteers will snort and say "I told you so" about lack of EU generosity and flexibility, and hard Brexit will then be the only game in town. If there's going to be a heave either within or against the Tories, it'll happen then.

The EU will shoot down any proposal. Hard Brexit here we come. And a good thing at that.

I don't think so- I'd guess they'll give words of encouragement to the "slow child", then slowly show that there are 2 options only - CETA or EEA.

I'd be inclined to agree with superman on that. The EU can't accept the 'free market for goods and food (only)' proposal but would be mad to dismiss it. They'll probably say it's a basis for negotiation, welcome elements of it, note the integrity of the Single Market in passing <cough>the four freedoms are indivisible</cough>, and then spell out the hard facts later in the summer. Unless they want to get rid of May, of course..

I listened to Geoffrey Donaldson on PK this morning
Completely ignorant of whats going on but that shouldnt be a surprise. PK wasnt much good either. GD stating a border in the sea would contravene the GFA :roll: . All that really matters to Donaldson is the union.

I doubt it's a masterstroke, but the Chequers agreement finally nailing colours to masts is pretty cunning, I think. It'll be interesting to see how many jump with BoJo and Double Davis. Finding yourself in the gods with the Mogglodytes (love that) and the DUP for company might make Headlines out of them. Nice hair, always in the news, but bit part players in Parliament.

I think the ludicrous nature of the hard Brexit position had to become evident, to the point where employers and unions were both calling for a softer Brexit. E.g. The laughable fishermen's union who have just realised that a hard Brexit would leave them with no market for their increased product.
