Sallyanne, I am not convinced that would be the case, it is May’s approach to Brexit that has got the Westminster lot in the state they are in now, a different approach from the beginning might have had a different outcome, however, I do accept that whoever takes over from May will not be able to change the parlous state that Westminster is now in.

I reckon the only way to break them out of the deadlock that they have caused themselves, is by one of two drastic measures:

1. Revoke Article 50.
2. Leave by default.

I would hazard a guess that the outcry if option 2 was taken would be the greatest.
