Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If there were elections now they wouldn't be about Brexit. At the moment only the far right really cares so they can be relied to rally to the banners against anything that remotely looks like a workable compromise. And there is no counterbalancing enthusiasm on the other side of this issue. Rallying around the status quo is not something you'd expect after a decade of austerity. So having a workable Brexit plan would be an electoral liability now. And if the elections are held at the regular time, the EU - UK relation would already have to be settled.

Doesn't mean there shouldn't be a sensible plan, but I can't really think of any likely scenario where having one will be of any use.
