    Have to assume that no deal is now the most likely scenario which is mind boggingly retarded!

    Assume ERG will now see no incentive to vote for MV3 as their dream is within grasp. Will conditions finally be right for Kyle ammendment once MV3 fails? Would May whip government to support Kyle ammendment to avoid no deal?

    That's the crux of the problem, her devotion to the Conservative party. Nothing is more important to her than the party, the country is very much a secondary consideration.

    Her refusal to accept any responsibility for this mess is staggering, it's always parliaments fault for not backing her deal not her fault for ignoring parliament and not reaching a compromised deal that would win cross party support.

    The flipside is her approach has made remaining far more likely than if she'd been working across parliament from the start but worryingly it has also made no deal more likely.

    Her insistence on her deal is beyond staggering. Also shows how weak the Cabinet remainers are. They need to start asserting their weight and push her away from the Eurosceptic maniacs.

    Haven't the EU said that they'll reject a short extension without any purpose?

    Does this though make it more likely that the Kyle ammendment passes next week? Assumptions based that:

    EU rejects short extension
    MV3 fails next week as Brexitiers see No deal as now likely.
    Kyle ammendment put forward after MV3 failure. Passes narrowly as its the last option to avoid leaving with no deal and attracts enough cross party support.
    EU then grants extension long enough for second referendum on the deal.

    Ah I see...but at least she's proven over the last few years that you can't rely on her word so her categorically denying something carries no real credibility!

    What I can't understand is how Revocation of Article 50 isn't now the default no deal position rather than crashing out without a deal. Parliament showed a majority are in favour of avoiding a no deal exit. May keeps on saying you can't take no deal off the table (you quite clearly can). Surely from her perspective it would massively have helped her chances of getting her deal through if the ERG maniacs realised that avoiding Brexit was the default position, they'd have had to have sucked it up and gone with it. I'm still hopefully the Kyle amendment squeaks through next week at the last minute.

    There is a certain delicious irony that those who are currently helping prevent Brexit are those most in favour of it.

    Surely after tonight's votes revoking article 50 rather than leaving with no deal should be the default position if no agreement can be made.

    I do think it's quite likely that the Kyle ammendment backing her deal in return for a referendum of it v remain could pass next week...
