    exactly, do as I do not as I say.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    So, officially, who's in charge of Brexit now? Is it all just Michel Barnier, or have the Tories got anyone left who will represent the UK?

    Sounds like the proposal would have been voted down in parliament anyway unless May was willing to give the DUP a few more billion to back her on NI soft border with mainland UK.

    All heading for a new referendum where government will be hoping a vote remain is delivered this time. That or a hard brexit and chaos as there has been insufficient planning and will need the EU to agree a transition period.

    Oh well.
    It is indeed time.

    Brexiteers must be in a panic though - if they bring down May, and a GE is the end result, they may never get their Brexit. Labour may have a leave leader, but I can't see them getting a majority in Westminster so they will need the support of SNP and we know they are remain. If Labour get in the Brexit will be as soft as Shaun's head

    There was never going to be any deal - good or bad. There was never the slightest reason to suppose the EU would set up some sort of Special Anglo-European Trading Zone. The Brexiteers couldn't get away from cake-and-eat-it but it was always pie in the sky.

    There was only

    1) Remain
    1a) BRINO or
    1b) Cancel Brexit

    or

    2) Leave
    2a) Hard Brexit

    We would aways eventually get to this denouement. But what you need to notice is Brexit has lost a lot of mindshare. The Tories will tear themselves apart over the bad deal but Option (2) has all but gone. It's now just a matter of what kind of (1) we get. And although very noisy it doesn't really matter (unless you are some sort of religious nut who thinks 'sovereignty' is somehow relevant in the real world).

    Rees-Mogg sought after reading through draft EU report:

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
