Bonnie Shaljean BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (4188* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 10 Apr 19

The only thing that worries me ("only"... ha!!! ...among the 9,348,932 other things that worry me) is: If Europe gives us the 31st December extension instead of the March 2020 one, there will be another potential cliff-edge-chaos scenario (right before the usual Christmas madness), because from the 12th, May's leadership can again be challenged from within. And her own party deserted her in droves during the last Parliamentary vote.

That means there's a real danger that one of the extremists could be selected as the prime minister - with less than three weeks to the end of what Europe has assured us is the Final Final Final deferral. At least the March 2020 option allows breathing space to thrash something out.

I hate May, but I truly believe that most (not all) of the available alternatives are far, far worse. And the ones that don't terrify me (forget about disgust, passed that post long ago) show no signs of wanting to pursue the PM's chair. So if the new date has to be December, I think it should be the 11th and not the 31st.
