Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How long would that be?

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing, nothing you can measure anymore

If Corbyn sticks to his plan there would have to be two elections before we would have an outcome. May or June would seem reasonable. Would anyone want an election in November, December, January, February or March?

The Guardian - possibly optimistically - is suggesting there could be Parliamentary support for a referendum on the 19th.

Getting Brexit off the agenda would transform politics. The Brexit Party and the LibDems would have to find some other reason to exist, the Tories would be badly damaged by a Remain  win, and Labour might have more of a chance to campaign on other pressing issues.
