Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It looks like the only Brexit that can pass Parliament is one that has Labour's stamp of approval. May can't possibly get the DUP back on board -- they have effectively bolted already -- and keep remainer (remainder?) Conservatives.

Or could she be saved by the parliamentary Blairites? Please, no.

In any case, any Brexit deal that could be approved by the UE27 and Parliament leaves her without a majority, because the DUP will be in permanent paroxysm.

Or you could have an election. My personal preference, because it would be democratic.

An election may be preferable, but it won't save us now. There just isn't time.

If there is any saving the situation, it will come shold a cross-party coalition emerge to vote through a soft brexit, probably including staying within the customs union, simply to save the nation.

This would pass, but they'd have to call an election immediately after to prevent May being displaced by an ultra and changing everything.

Of course, such an action would not just end Theresa May's stay in 10 Downing St, it may well initiate a split in the Tory party from which they cannot recover.

that said, I don't think May could bring herself to do it.

From what I can tell it's always been about the Tory Party for May and the rest of the UK can go fuck itself.
