Knowing when to fold ’em

Interesting times. Boris Johnson ‘on brink of Brexit deal’ after border concessions, reports the Guardian, making the best of what is for it a painful dilemma.

The Guardian, along with all the Remain side, has spent the last couple of years saying how apocalyptically dreadful it would be to leave the European Union without a deal. Now it looks like there just might be a deal. Opinions on the Leave side are likely to be divided as to whether this is a good thing, but spare a thought for those Remainers who must now choose whether to accept their salvation from what they said was the greatest peril imaginable, or continue their struggle for the ultimate prize of reversing the referendum entirely – at the very real risk of bringing about the very thing they most feared and finding it wasn’t so bad after all.

  1. If the deal is Treason May’s turd with lipstick it will do huge damage to Johnson and the Tory Party. Unless the EU have dropped their bottle–unlikely in view of their limitless arrogance and sense of entitlement. The HoTraitors will boot it anyway. So No deal still most likely.

  2. I suspect Remainers are pinning all their hopes to the Surrender Act. I also suspect that the EU has not budged one inch.

  3. I’m assuming here that the “Deal” is a feint to get us to the end of October at which point we will leave without a deal. With a Tory majority of something minus 40 there isn’t any way that this deal will pass.

    My presumption is that we’ve taken this wondering meander through a “potential deal” territory in order to fulfil technical requirements of the Benn Act and little more.

  4. How will Remoaners cope with the rejection of their hopes that would come from a ‘deal’ that puts the UK out of the eu? How could Juncker, Tusk and the creepy Belgian chap do that to them? It’ll be like the dissonance from the Commies after the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.
