DMcG BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (2657* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 02 Apr 19

On the question of 'fudge': I am not certain. The distinction between a fudge and a compromise, in my interpretation, is that a fudge is a phrase or arrangement where the two sides can interpret it differently, and I am not at all sure there is scope for that, because whatever we end up with will be international law.

Since Labour whipped for three of the options, and the rest of the opposition was broadly in line, I see very little scope for changing the numbers on the opposition benches: merging some motions is very unlikely to achieve anything in itself. So I think Nick Boles was right to blame the Conservatives for not being prepared to compromise. To clarify, I do not mean those like the ERG, but any Conservative MP who voted against a no-deal, but also against any way to ensure that.
