    Latest Opinium poll:

    Labour 36%,
    Conservative 29%
    UKIP 16%
    Lib Dem 6%
    Green 5%

    So what happens if May’s deal to stay in the EU goes through?

      If it goes through, even without the backstop or some fudge, it would be a total disaster for the UK, The Tories will have buried themselves again in the John ERM Major way. Corbyn/ SNP will destroy the economy in dry short order. Just the thought of it is damaging it already.

      But this will not happen. The country, Tory Party Members and the 100 on the sound wing will win out. Even the appalling T May and P Hammond can be made to see sense – eventually.

        I’m not sure. I think the DUP and some of the current Tory backstop rebels will be won over by further ‘explanations’ / ‘guarantees ‘ from the EU/Govt. Even Jacob R-M is now saying that without the backstop he might vote for the deal. I think the focus needs to move on to how we get out of this post April 19, and move to a sensible free trade arrangement with the EU.

    Not to worry there won’t be a WA, neither will there be another vote, so that leaves only two options, A50 to be revoked, or else leave with no deal- so it looks to me like you’ll leave with no deal- as can’t see the EU agreeing to accept revoke at this stage, not with the European elections fast coming up and also neighbouring countries are preparing for crash so relax and enjoy the festivities- 29 March is not that far away- Santa is coming

      I hope and pray for a WTO Brexit.
