Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
General election and referendum both sound unlikely, given that neither side is confident of a win. Not to mention the timeline, and the MEP elections that would be required, and the howling--or worse--from the brexiteers.

Forget them. UK political dysphoria is long beyond the Pale: integrity, concept of, or compassion, syn: pity.

May explores idea of bringing Brexit deal back for 4th vote
wtf: "The alternative to 'no-deal' is to delay Brexit for at least several months while Britain tries to sort out the mess."

If EU Council lets any of their "alternative" plans not to ratify the WA slide, EU Council will have created a bigger credibility problem than it already has for "cohesion" and "democracy" in EU27. I think, even 22 May deadline is problematic, given conditions in UK. My reasoning has little to do with unanimity in the Council; that can be arranged.

Rather, participation in Election 2019 will drop like rock along with EP conciliation, along with "certainty" in money markets and inter-state trade.

What's the watchword? o, yeah. "Trump wins."

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
