    Remainers will soon be wishing they voted for Theresa May’s deal. Could soon be facing the prospect of a no-deal Brexit with Boris still PM only with Farage as deputy PM!

    I honestly dont know what Cummings has up his sleeve now. They have something – otherwise they wouldnt have just dropped the lords filibustering – but question is what is it ? My money is still that they are going to ignore the legislation with the idea being they are “supporting the will of the people”, knowing that with only 2 weeks to go, even though there is going to be handwaving, it will be so utterly unknown territory, government ignoring judiciary, they will get over the line.

    That or he will quit (genuinely) saying he couldnt do his job because of remainer MP’s giving him an Out while in his view having saved face.

    The risk here is the next prime minister could be nigel farage if people are not careful.

    So looks like it’s going to happens: he plans to ignore the ruling about no deal and just plough on. This is going to be so interesting!

    The EU Parliament has said it will veto any proposal that does not involve a backstop (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/sep/12/european-parliament-to-criticise-uk-treatment-eu-citizens-veto-brexit-deal). This really means now its no-deal or stay in EU. Because they are saying “has to have a backstop” it kind of makes the time-limited backstop an impossibility because they are in effect saying the backstop has to stay.

    So its no deal or stay. I think its stay…

    How can the UK stay in though? There’s no majority for either a second referendum or withdrawal in Parliament as things currently stand. A General Election is required in which Boris will likely win (with or without a majority).

    Remaining in the EU is unthinkable in my opinion. There’s not only the enormous damage it would do to democracy in the UK. It would be an international humiliation the likes of which have never been seen. Furthermore, the UK’s international standing would be left in tatters. I can’t believe there are politicians (and ex PM’s) that are actively plotting to ensure the UK remains.

    I agree they are stuffed either way. However, is the sand moving ? This morning the mail says the DUP may agree to border checks on the Irish Sea (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7458639/DUP-offers-Boris-Johnson-Brexit-lifeline-Party-accept-Ulster-keeping-EU-rules.html) which kind of could unlock the whole thing.
