Not according to my MP!

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Nah. seems highly unlikely. labour would be punished at the polls next week if they were seen to prop up the Tories any more. I suspect they will suffer e hammering anyway for their equivocation so far, but enabling the Toties will be the last straw for many.

Ha! I misread your last post, coffee! I thought it said there was an agreement! Not enough caffeine... That's the problem with silly coloured text.

having apparently failed to correctly predict that Soft Brexit would be the end result of the 2016 referendum, I now do the same for a relatively simple Parliamentary vote some time in October to revoke Article 50

Ah, Brexit supporters got 32.6% of the vote, down from 52% at the Referendum... not a good day for them.

Overall, bad news for Brexiteers:
