There was even a withdrawal agreement with the EU :-)
But not really, as it has not passed parliament. May made a stupid mistake by not involved all parties and everybody that voted to invoke A50 without parliament also made a stupid mistake, why vote for something big before seeing any sort of plan. Amazing.
Are you going to let the presentation or leadership style of May put you off the deal?
Threats to bypass parliament are pretty serious stuff.
How does that change what happens next?
Well, actually...it can a lot. The government is not setup to deal with something as big as Brexit that can run over several governments. Breaking trust is not going to help there.
Too much faith was put on amendments a/ passing and b/ holding any weight again due to a disconnect, a miss-reading of the political climate outside Westminster
The climate that now polls towards Remain?
But yes, that is now the past. Going forward I think first thing is that parliament has to get back control and sneaking out a Brexit w/o approval should be stopped.
Then hurdle two if there is a GE...ask the EU for an extension. Again, parliament may have to force it.
Ideally, not a GE because Labour looks like they are going to lose big time and it it not even likely yet that the LibDems will get enough votes for a coalition with Labour (akwards silences during negotiations to follow)
Perhaps another round of votes (the EU will sign up to a CU/SM agreement pretty quickly I think and no backstop is needed for that, so, em, everybody wins? Brexit done, not too much damage to the UK...) will happen, but it all depends on what will happen in September.
Perhaps the WA is revived and put to a public vote VS Remain/No Deal <-- really...but that may happen and then another "fun" campaign follows.
For everyone's sake and sanity and peace a SM/CU Brexit is my preference, I really rather Remain but it is going to eat up more time (and the UK has some big issues to sort) and then hopefully we can move on.
But if there IS another vote, well I am waiting on citizenship acceptance and then I will go round the doors to get people to vote. Which will be "fun" in some Belfast areas :)
