Conservative/Eurosceptics argue that the EU doesn't have the right to lock a sovereign state in the EU when we have voted to leave. None of them want a whole load more Uncle Nigels elected if we have to take part in EU elections in May.

    No deal is now the likeliest outcome, though not certain.
    Not sure I understand why the EU would extend? Unless Iím missing something by not extending we are forced into no deal - which we have made it clear we wonít do - or Mayís deal, which the EU have agreed.

    So they refuse to extend and we are forced into Mayís deal, no?

    Very good. I do sense a sort of warming up to your president happening here, e. You know, as Mueller & Co. prepares to call it a day and go home?

And we can see that the mere placeholder of a populist president surfaces a lot of gunge, such as, for example, this cheating scandal for elite colleges going on right now. This is all to the good. Lets off steam. And why should people not be homers, especially when we have nice areas, mountains, eagles. It's not Bangladesh, after all.

    No question. But my goal is to bring about the anarcho-syndicalist overthrow of the the capitalist narco-state, and this means that I will always blast forth any conspiracy to help weaken the latter. Trump's illegitimacy, and your current travails, being two examples.

    Not if she can't get it through Parliament (which she patently can't), no.

    A rejection of an extension means No Deal.

    The only alternative is legislating to revoke of A50, which would be democratically indefensible and would represent electoral suicide for both major parties.

    so you think parliament if faced with a choice between no deal and Mayís deal would choose no deal? Not convinced

    Not so much a warming up as an advancing of the plot. Like I say violent overthrow of the state

    I've explained the mechanics whereby it potentially happens. Labour would whip against it and there's no reason to think any other opposition parties wouldn't do the same, since they'll want to distance themselves as far as possible from 'Tory Brexit' as they can. The DUP won't budge if the backstop doesn't and the ERG - if faced with a choice between the deal they hate and No Deal - will overwhelmingly vote No Deal (indeed, many of them would love it).

    Now sure there are lots of potential complications to that (abstentions, rebellions on the Labour benches, Tory MPs losing their bottle, etc), but it's perfectly plausible - even likely at this stage - that May's deal is rejected a third time and we get No Deal.

    The only upside to a delay from the EUís perspective is that it ends up in a referendum and a Remain vote. The downside of no extension is that we may vote for no deal.

    The EU has to decide which of those two things is more likely and proceed accordingly I think.

    Iím now guessing they donít extend we have one final vote and Mayís deal goes through as parliament wonít vote for no deal.
