    I think this is the only way forward. The government is so weak and could change during negotiations. For the good of the country a cross party negotiating team should be set up.
    I'm not sure how palatable that would be to the anti Europe brigade in her own party. It seems to me that for those still wielding influence within the Conservatives it's a hard Brexit whatever the cost to their own party and the country as a whole.

    First Cameron and now May have left us in one hell of a mess with their huge miscalculations.

    The whole **** up is about the internal fighting in the tory party. They've utterly screwed the economy on account of infighting and posturing. Who, now, can cast them as economically credible?

    He's spot on.

    I said the other night that the politics and election results of the UK in the 2010s are going to form very interesting and quite baffling material for historians in years to come.

    Agreed. I didn't really think it needed further comment, but here goes, anyway.

    The line which really gets to me is this one:

    52/48 ... a margin not normally wide enough to change the constitution of the average golf club ...

    You're right and I thought it was pretty rich for Osborne to sit there this morning relishing May's predicament when his austerity policies are largely to blame for this shambles.

    Cameron's decision to risk the future of our country by holding​ the EU referendum in order to outmanoeuvre UKIP is to blame.

    I very much doubt it will happen for the reasons you state. This whole mess is driven by self interest.

    We see regular opinion polls on indy ref but not Brexit (to my knowledge anyway). Wonder what way a Brexit vote would go now

    Sadly, most people would vote the same way, pre-April anyway.

    I like the Hesteltine point that leave supporters have been disruptively trying to overturn the result of the 1973 referendum for 43years so why should remain supporters not behave similarly.

    I think we should all put petty squabbling aside and wish the Conservative and Unionist Negotiating Team the best of British luck.
