"Damn You, Representative Democracy! I'll Get You!"

@stolas @cbowdon It gets weird. Because 2/3 of Tory and 2/3 of Labour MPs are personally pro-Remain. But are in constituencies that are pro-Leave. So there's a clear Remain majority in the house judged on personal belief. But if they express their personal beliefs they'd lose their seats.

5 Brexit Options

- Full Brexit JRM, BJ, DD, ERG. Crash out in the biggest possible way.

- Chequers Compromise The impossible middle way. Not acceptable to pretty much everyone. EU, Leavers, Remainers, N Ireland, etc, etc,

- Brexit in Name Only Leave EU but not any EU structure. Stay in the Customs Union, Single Market, 4 freedoms, ECJ, Euratom, etc, etc. Sensible, but not actually acceptable to anyone.

- Delay Negotiate 2-year stays of execution. Repeat indefinitely. Give up control but don't change anything. Wait until political climate changes.

- Cancel Art50 and Remain This is probably possible but nobody really knows the implications. Full Euro and Schengen as a minimum payment for wasting the EU's time?

We are so screwed. But we're heading into an end game.

And people are beginning to talk about the break up of the UK 2 party system. And some fundamental re-alignments. Which is going to be tricky because the sensible middle ground consists of MPs who have never rebelled and never gone against their party's whip. It's hard to see how they could grow a backbone and do anything. While simultaneously holding their nose and cooperating with the other tribe. More likely is that the extremes of each party break away. Leaving 2 rump parties, neither of which can get a majority.

@stolas @cbowdon There are no "safe" options. Except possibly indefinite delay.

I don't really want another referendum but an acceptable alternative is a general election with a clear leave-remain choice between the two major parties. Except that Labour won't play the game of being unequivocally pro-remain.

We are *so* screwed. Right now it feels like there's no way out.

Actually, maybe there's 5 options. In descending order of severity.

- Full Brexit. No Deal. ERG
- Theresa May's Compromise. Impossible middle way. Not Acceptable to anyone. EU, N Ireland, etc, etc.
- Brexit in Name Only. Leave EU but not any EU structure. Single market, customs union, ECJ, etc
- Delay. Negotiate indefinite 2-year stays of execution
- Cancel Art50 and Remain

Brexit end games.

I'm becoming convinced that there is no middle ground. There are only 3 realistic scenarios left, 2 soft and one hard.

- NoBrexit. We find a way to cancel Art50 and stay in EU
- BINO. Leave the EU but stay in all EU structures. Customs union, single market, euratom, ECJ, etc., etc.
- FullBrexit. No deal. Crash out completely.

And I suppose there is a sub-version of BINO where we just kick the can forever, endless extensions of the interim period.

If the USA wants NATO members to increase NATO spending to 4% GDP, perhaps they will have to increase the salt tax. Especially the Gabelle in the run up to 14 Juillet.
