Theresa May Has Lost Her Mind

This Is All Getting a Bit Tedious!

It was so nice to have a few Brexit free days, sadly it was not to last!

Pelosi Wades In

All very well, except there is no deal at the moment!

Extension Granted Until Halloween

I guarantee that Westminster will squander this extension!

Long, Short or Non?

Today's Brexit question that will be answered by the end of the day (theoretically), will the UK be granted an extension; if so will it be long or short?

Leadsom Loses Touch With Reality

The Berlin and Paris meetings are simply the Germans and French being polite, and hoping they can coax a better performance (than the previous occasions) out of May when she faces the full EU again tomorrow.

May's 30 June Extension Request

Stuck In Purgatory Forever

It seems we will be stuck in purgatory (neither pproperly in, nor properly out) forever now.

Well done the ERG!

The Blame Game

May Hands Control of Brexit To Corbyn and Parliament

Yesterday, in a speech of very thin gruel, May handed control of Brexit to Corbyn and parliament.

Whilst the ERG et al fulminate that this is a betrayal, it may not be entirely what it seems.

For why?

Given that we have only until 12 April to formulate a plan that the EU will accept, pound to a penny Corbyn screws this up and Parliament ends up deadlocked. As such we will leave the EU without a deal, and May can blame Corbyn and Parliament for screwing it up!

Of course given how unpredictable the ongoing Brexit shenanigans are, it is highly likely I am wrong!

Stop Dithering - Make a Decision

May's Time For Fence Sitting Ends

Leaders who dither and procrastinate, always end up in the shit as May is now finally realising.

Cameron The Destroyer

A Failure of Compromise?

Boles may well be right about the Tories. However, he should not ignore the fact that May's deal would have passed if Labour had voted for it. The failure of compromise lies with all parties at Westminster, not just the Tories.

This is evidenced by the fact that all of last night's indicative votes were defeated.
