Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the problem for theresa May is not that there is no majority in Westminster for a properly negotiated and orderly brexit.

Her problem is that it's the wrong sort of majority. Brexit came into existence to hold the alliance that is the Conservative party together. Principally the swivel eyed freetrade fanatics c/w the business first pragmatists. Europe splits this alliance apart because they are fundamentally incompatible, in the US it's probably the point of difference between the modern incarnations of both the GOP and the DNC Democrats. They are able to work together on most issues, but on this issue there can be no harmony: One side must prevail. Just as with Cameron, May is trying to pretend there is a happy position between them and that is the foundation on which she is trying to build her brexit.

And its failing. And the UK will sink with her
