Mrs Teresa May was a Remainer before the Referendum voted for us to leave.

What if she is still a Remainer and making the Negotiations so complex and the terms, so unacceptable that, at the last moment, we decide to Remain!

I think she has worked tirelessly to do her best to “obey the will of the people “. She seems an honest person with an impossible task, sniped at by true hard line remainers and extreme Brexiteers like IDS , Johnson, Rees Mogg etc who have forgotten that politics is the art of the compromise. I am sorry for her.

Not helped by the intransigent EU negotiators who had/have absolutely no intention of any sort of deal other than on totally their terms

You're correct, you have severe case of paranoia!

Personally I believe that had Boris or similar been negotiating he and his bustering brusque and bullying style would have gotten us much less. Don't forget that Boris wanted a bespoke deal, this is what the May deal is. It's not perfect, but bombing out is less perfect.

The Attorney General said that it an element of calculated risk in it, yet some hardliners would rather take the wholly reckless risk associated with bombing out. I'm an absolute remainer, if you hadn't already noticed, but I can live with this compromise to move us on from the bickering stage.

Right now it is Parliament's complete indecision that is the major problem in the delivery of Brexit. And if Brexit delivery fails after next week's vote, it will collectively be our parliament, the hardliner leavers, the dedicated remainers, the opposition, the DUP, the SNP. Not the EU, or the PM, or the public remoaners that would have caused it.

But I won't remotely be disappointed if Brexit doesn't materialise as a result of our gross parliamentary incompetence.

"Not helped by the intransigent EU negotiators who had/have absolutely no intention of any sort of deal other than on totally their terms"

Looking at it open mindedly from their point of view, that's a very bumpkinly statement. What did you expect? Everything that was on Boris's bus...

I'd say it's more of a pantomime now.

Oh yes it is!

It's behind you!

17 million leave voters will be. Anarchy will rule.

We don't do anarchy, we're British.

I hope you are right, QB. If Mrs May and her followers continue any further with the nationwide 'propaganda gig' to try to win some empathy from the public [that she is not just a stubborn leader with not one empathetic nerve in her phsyche] then it should, quite possibly, all end in tears.

It wasn't described as the final say at the time...
