Parliament needs to hold its nerve

Mrs May called a snap general election, put herself and her government in the weakest of positions, failed to involve other parties in the negotiations with EU, and blames everyone but herself when Parliament refuses her rubbish deal.

Can she really be so blinkered to her own shortcomings and those of her flawed negotiating strategy resulting in such a disastrous outcome - the worst agreement in history - as to blame MPs for the mess? Whichever side of the fence they sit, her Withdrawal Agreement is the worst of all possibilities. Yet she told them last night the failure was all their fault. Does she and her advisers really believe that? They must have known that to make such a statement would further isolate the PM – what is their game?

And what next? The EU will only grant an extension to the end of June if Parliament agrees the deal next week. Mrs May’s statement last night has made it very unlikely she’ll gain support in another vote. Neither parliament, the government, the EU – or the people – want a long extension. So, what will happen? What should happen is that we follow the rule of law and leave on WTO terms on the 29th as decided by the people, but what will happen is still in the lap of the gods.
