As Brexit will happen, given the choice between May’s deal and no deal.......I think you’ll be surprised.

If it is a conscious strategy, it’s the right one, see the white of their eyes..etc.

But ........it’s just that her deal is pretty crap. I would be amazed if her deal, unless transformed by EU Capitulation would get through.

Re: Brexit

Suggestion here that if Theresa May gets the DUP back on board, she may then get sufficient votes from her party to get her deal through.
Quote:
Theresa May will be within 20 votes of winning a parliamentary majority for her Brexit deal if she can gain assurances from the EU that will persuade the Democratic Unionist party to back her deal, senior ministers and Tory MPs believe.
One cabinet minister said they believed the success of the prime minister’s deal hinged entirely on a last-bid to win round the DUP. Another MP said they saw the Northern Irish party as the “British standard” who would give them the reassurance they needed to fall in behind.
“You unlock huge numbers of Tory MPs if you can get something the DUP can accept,” the cabinet minister said. “There’s no point at all in holding a vote until you win back the DUP. That is the absolute priority.”
Several cabinet sources played down the prospect of any efforts to try to form a coalition of support with Labour MPs and said all efforts were focused on regaining the DUP’s support.

Re: Brexit

She might do.

As I said earlier the fact she is immune for a year from a Conservative vote of no confidence means that the ERG and allies do not have an easy way of taking control and forcing no deal. For Brexiters the risk of a 'softer' Brexit or no Brexit is now higher should her deal fail than it was before the letters went in. For ages the ERG held that card over her head as leverage but now that leverage is gone and May herself knows that Brexit is probably the last, and only, thing she'll do as PM in the short time she has remaining.

Whose going to stop her if she choses anything but no deal?

Parliament? They want a softer Brexit than she does.
The Cabinet? See above, few no dealers in her cabinet.
ERG? Took their chance, missed.
Tory rebels brining down their own government? Maybe, but do they get a form a no deal Government with Parliament being so Remainy?

I assume this is to calm the crowds giddy with all the wonderful things that will happen to the UK as promised by Rees-Mogg et al

Re: Brexit

Ending freedom of movement, and ending aspirational net migration targets. What’s going on here then?
