The scope for this process to be mismanaged or sabotaged in some way is still high. For one thing, anything Corbyn proposes is likely to be opposed my most Tories almost all of the time. It is still unclear whether any motion to hold a second referendum will pass the HOC without May's government's support. My guess is that that may not be forthcoming until late June as the UK faces the prospect of the EU Council not renewing an initial 3 month extension.

Historical nonsense underpins UK's Brexit floundering
Rees-Mogg sees May's Chequers plan as "the greatest vassalage since King John paid homage to Phillip II at Le Goulet", a bizarre reference to a short-lived treaty by which England accepted French sovereignty over territories in France. Medieval Britain's fascinating complexities, and its political and cultural entanglements with the continent, are ignored in favour of flag-waving fantasy: The Daily Express declared the crusader knight - drawn from the European attempts to conquer the Holy Land - "the figurehead of the struggle to repatriate British sovereignty".
