This is what I find really annoying. It is perfectly clear that this bill in this incarnation will not pass. Instead of accepting that and getting out of the way, May is again kicking the doomed...

I don't disagree with that, but I would argue that the only other option that was available, May's deal, was voted down either by those who just don't want to leave the EU and those operating for...

I think the Norway option deserves more consideration, as it may be a better way to get into being out of the EU than May's deal with the potential lock in of the backstop during the transition. ...

That is an interesting question. One thing I do not hear asked much to remain MPs is "what is it that you don't like about May's deal". Whenever the question is asked you get some flannel about it...

I don't think delaying Art 50 is a choice, it's just pushing the choice down the road, it still has to be made, a form of May deal or no deal. As far as I can see any further referendum would require...
