It is hard to see May's WA going through parliament even with some unicorn backstop re-arrangement. Her basic majority is wafer-thin, all opposition parties are committed to opposing irrespective of backstop and there are plenty of tory rebels who have said repeatedly that is not their only objection.

Who are the 115 people that will change their minds? 10 DUP and.....?

At the moment, my main hope is that Theresa May's government is just too incompetent to do the damage they want to do.

Hmm saw some arguments that make me start drifting back to WS. The Boles/Cooper amendment will require a lot of time to get it through, even with general agreement.

Guardian - Jessica Elgot: "The other thing worth noting about the Boles-Cooper bill to mandate an extension of Article 50 if there is no deal within weeks is that it is a long old road to get the legislation on the books. The bill needs to get through multiple Commons stages, 2nd, 3rd readings, then House of Lords. No means impossible but tough. And it will only get Parliamentary time if those behind it pass an amendment to give it priority over other Commons business. Lots of hurdles to jump."

The opposition as a whole should tread carefully. If there is a scatter gun approach of amendments and no confidence votes, time could run out.

But it's only when time has almost run out that we will see what a bunch of MPs that are utterly crapping themselves come up with. Corbyn hoping for that I guess, it's a point where the Tory turkeys might actually vote for a general election Christmas.

I'll probably get roundly flamed for saying this. However I never thought I'd see the day when a Prime Minister stood up in the House of Commons and, in so many words, incited social unrest if they don't get their way.

Disagree if you will - but that was my interpretation of what she was saying, and I suspect I'm not alone

That's how it was reported in the guardian, I was wondering how it sounded.

She's been doing that for a while though FR - stoking both sides against the other - the My Deal, No Deal or No Brexit speeches.

She's being taking a leaf from that other petulant child "leader" - DT. Although she's not quite at his level yet...
