the battle to achieve the no deal the brexiteer-ultras seem to have set their heart on is going to get very interesting.

The only way May can govern is to work towards no deal, but there is no majority in the Commons to allow it. The Tory whips hav already stated it can't be forced through and doing so would cause the Govt to fall.

So, their plan is to delay and delay until we run out of time and fall out of the EU by default. It will interesting to see how long it takes for the sensible maority to realise that is the plan and agitates to prevent it.
