Thread Name: The Dead Brexit Plan Sketch
Subject: RE: The Dead Brexit Plan Sketch
Ah the aptness of the "Dead Parrot comparison":

PM: Oh yes, the, uh, the Not The Norwegian Blue Plan...What's,uh...What's wrong with it?
M: We'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. It's dead, that's what's wrong with it!

Ask the EU if May's Deal is dead. According to them it is the ONLY deal they will consider, no further negotiations, no further concessions - It would appear that it is Parliament that has deluded itself into thinking that they can influence the negotiations that have always been the sole preserve of the British Government and the EU Commission.

In accordance with UK Law and the Treaty of Lisbon Article 50 if the deal already agreed by May and all 27 other EU member states is not accepted by Parliament the the default is that the UK leaves on the 29th March, 2019 WITH NO DEAL.

Tonight they have stated that the granting of any extension is conditional on Parliament accepting May's deal - you know the one the one that Parliament thinks is a dead parrot.
