Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Benn was on The World At One. He made it crystal clear that the EU has to accept any proposal before it can be put to any sort of meaningful vote in the Commons. I suppose that getting the House to show that it supports the deal might be seen by leavers to be putting pressure on the EU to accept. That won't work. The EU wants see Ireland fully protected and that there is a cast-iron guarantee that there can never be a border any more restrictive than the present one. The proposal fails on these accounts. Two weeks to go, Bozo, then the law of the land will tell you what to do.
