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

The Guardian is saying that A.50 should be extended.

"...the time has come for parliament to get behind Ms Cooper's all-party plan to use legislation to take back control of the Brexit process - and extend article 50..."

Seems to me that this would be just about as bad of a situation as what is already in place. The A.50 referendum was done without a defined plan in place; what would be the point of extending A.50 without a defined plan in place?

The only sensible way forward at this point is to withdraw the A.50 letter, go to the drawing board (note, not "back to the drawing board") to come up with a new plan, and then hope that the EU doesn't radically change the A.50 process within the next six months.

Any revocation kills Brexit. Likely any delay, especially any delay to attempt a realistic plan, also kills Brexit.

None of this will be acceptable to Brussels and the members of the EU. PM May, her Brexiteers, Tory and Labour MPs won't get any act together before the Ides of March. The Brexit ship will be launched from the dry dock and fail to float the first hectometer.

 

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
