DMcG BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (3241* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 27 Mar 19

It is getting hard to keep track of all the U turns, but I think Boris declared May's deal an 8nacceptable straightjacket yesterday, that he would vote for it today and the with the DUP announcement it won't back or abstain, finds himself declaring he will back a deal the hardliners hate that may not take place at all. Sounds as if he is spinning so fast he has stabbed himself in the back.

Meanwhile, it looks as if Bercow will only allow the deal to come back if is significantly amended, probably by including something Parliament selects via indicative vote process, even though May would not commit to doing that. Meanwhile also May promises to remain if her deal (which she might not be able to vote on) is passed; and if has been amended she may not think it her deal anyway. Meanwhile the ERG is splitting with a number saying they will back her vote (which may not be voted on and if amended by, say, adding in a confirmatory referendum they may now be unable to support again

However both houses have amended the departure date so we are definitely NOT leaving on Friday - sorry, Nigel!

Everyone clear?
