May’s Brexit Betrayal

Well, this happened:

In a statement from Downing Street, Mrs May said she wanted to agree a new plan with Mr Corbyn and put it to a vote in the Commons before 10 April – when the EU will hold an emergency summit on Brexit. 


If she and Mr Corbyn do not agree a single way forward, she proposed putting a number of options to MPs “to determine which course to pursue”.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of Her Majesty’s Most Loyal Opposition, has been all over the place about Brexit. In recent days, he supported a second referendum only to be spurned by his own MPs, but just a month before he had said he wasn’t calling for a second referendum.

The bizarre combination of May’s my-deal-or-the-highway and Corbyn’s feckless opposition is a big part of why Parliament has been in chaos about Brexit for months.

Interestingly, in the linked BBC article, May says this:

The PM said she understood some people were “so fed up with delay and endless arguments” they would prefer to leave without a deal, and she believed the UK “could make a success of no-deal in the long term”.

If that’s what she believes, then why not do it?

Nothing else seems to be working.
