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

The best outcome of Brexit is the EU forcing the Commons into a "Take-It-or-Leave-It" (op. cite Frank) Agreement.

I still think "No Deal" is more likely.  Followed by a bit of economic hardship.  A new election.  And then UK acceptance of the "Take-It-or-Leave-It" Agreement, mostly likely by a Labour government.

Somewhere in there is the chance the SNP will force another Independence Referendum.  Which they might just win.

if the EU frce a "take it or leave it" deal, I doubt it will come out of the blue, there will be a lot of back-channel contact with various parliamentary factions.

As I've said above, there simply isn't a majority in the Commons for a no-deal brexit, so any deal the EU offer will be the final deal.

That said, to paraphrase Churchill, the Tory party will expore every possible option before doing the right thing
