Spiral wrote:It depends how far May is willing to bend to avoid no-deal, but Labour's brexit alternatives and six tests (putting aside the debate on the worth of those six tests) were discussed at the cabinet meeting. Not entirely inconceivable that Labour's version of brexit could be the final outcome as what we know of it is infinitely more likely to command a majority and is supported by the EU. It's down to political will on the Conservatives part and considerations for the marginals they hold. I imagine they have got their polling and data scientists working overtime.
How far will she bend? As far as it takes. I don't think we have ever had a less principled Prime Minister - her one and only aim is to remain Prime Minister, and she will say whatever she thinks will get her votes to do it. She has tried "no deal is better than a bad deal", but has withdrawn. She has tried "we will not ask for a delay", and has asked for two. She has opposed the House of Commons taking control, now she says she wants it to take control. She has frequently said her deal is the only one going, and now she is going to collect a raft of different packages to take to the EU.
She is useless. There is a saying about people in work - they can be hard working or lazy, they can be clever or stupid.
If they are clever and hard working, they will make good managers. Promote them.
If they are stupid and lazy, they can be made useful by application of the boot. Retain them.
If they are clever and lazy, they have the innovative mind that should be running the company.
But if they are stupid and hard working, they are a menace to everyone around. Get rid of them.
I know which category Theresa May falls into.
