    Brexit won't be delayed past October. I think that's now a given. It'll be No Deal or revocation.

    So May has promised MPs a vote on holding a 2nd referendum if they back her deal...

    But only with more strings attached that the entire box set of Thunderbirds. She really is a snivelling, self-serving old sow isn't she.

    That'd have probably even less chance of getting through the HOC. It'll turn away the hardliners who had u-turned and backed her last time round. Corbyn won't back her deal regardless and he doesn't want a second ref anyway, so Labour aren't going to back her in any numbers. All largely irrelevant now.

    Jas H, what's happening behind the Tory scenes with regards to movers and shakers for next Leader?

    Nobody notice May's announcement of her 10-point plan. Words closely to the effect:

    Point 1. We will have an alternative arrangement to negate the need for the backstop by December 2020.
    Point 2. If we need the backstop, ......

    She does realise that it's taken three years to get to this point? There's no way a backstop arrangement will be in place by her timetable. Looking at today's newspaper headlines her "New Deal" has been roundly battered by all sides

    Some nice photos of Teaser in the papers today, grimacing, scowling and gurning. Would give The Broon a run for his money on that front.
