Thread Name: The Dead Brexit Plan Sketch
Subject: RE: The Dead Brexit Plan Sketch
Everybody knows that the so-called "deal" has no majority, although it does not even deserve that name, since it would actually leave the most important parts to future negotiations. Everybody knows that all the changes made in the past weeks are only cosmetic, to provide a pretext to those MPs who are willing to change their minds - for quite different reasons, of course. It is a game for lots of money and power, not about denocracy (haha!). The "deal" may or may not be resurrected in the course of the game, as may all other options on the table.
The Dead Parrot, on the other hand, came from a shop full of live birds and was sold to an initially unsuspecting customer. This has more resemblance to the Brexit referendum of 2016. If any MP has ever been so naive to take that for face value, s/he must have learned better by now. Who is really surprised that Mrs. May is not Harry Potter?
