DMcG BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (2657* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 08 Apr 19


Daniel Finkelstein, the Conservative peer and Times columnist, made this comment on Politics Live Andrew Bridgen, but I am sure he believes it applies to all the Brexiteers in Parliament:


You have not got the votes in parliament. It is really hard dealing with this, because it seems to me so daft, to use a polite word for it. You canít get no-deal through parliament because 400 MPs are against it. It doesnít matter who the leader of the Conservative party is. This is not about Theresa May. And one of the reasons you failed to get rid of her last time you pointlessly made a vote of no confidence in her, that just resulted in strengthening her for a year, is that getting rid of her would make no difference. And it is failing to appreciate that that has meant that you have over-played your hand, over and over again, and are going to end up possibly with a second referendum on a soft Brexit, and possibly a Corbyn government thrown in. The tactical stupidity of this is breathtaking
