Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not realistic ... putting options before Labour Congress.

A 2nd referendum is acceptable to no one and time has run out. The Tory government may fall, that won't solve the Brexit deal ... London in panic mode. Finally!

Great presentation Frank! They should have listened.

Indeed Kabuki theater from the onset ... wrote that in a diary too.

Well there seems to have been a sea change in Labour supporters attitudes, with 86% now wanting a referendum on any deal negotiated. In a democracy, people are allowed to change their minds. If Labour puts a pledge to that effect in their manifesto, they might well win the next election, if there is one any time soon. The issue is will May negotiate a deal this autumn, and will it be passed by the Commons. If not all bets are off.

My comment from July 15th ....

Kabuki theatre

I can't help it, but these last weeks of Downing Street 10 appears to me part of a Kabuki theatre of the Tories with May, Johnson and Davies in the lead roles.

There is no way Michel Barnier and the EU nations will accept the Chequers White Paper as a new start for negotiations. Intent to let the "negotiations" fail and place blame on EU intransigence.

Once the talks have failed, the real Brexiteers will become part of government again, perhaps under a new Tory leader.

That's my take of things that pass. It couldn't be utter stupidity, can it?
