Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Now back to important matters concerning Brexit:
"THERESA MAY has lost the support of one of the Tory party’s most prominent financial backers to Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party following her failure to leave the EU on time.
The Conservative Party is on track for an “absolute mauling” and Labour is braced for huge losses in the EU elections as the Brexit crisis looks set to change the political landscape of the UK, a recent poll has found.
Brexit will rip support from the UK’s major parties as disillusioned parties turn to Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party in the May 23 elections in in protest against Theresa May’s handling of the UK’s exit from the EU.
Anand Menon, director of think-tank The UK in a Changing Europe, said Theresa May’s ruling government would not call an early election while the UK remains in the EU because they are expecting an “absolute mauling”.
In response to Mr Tusk's claim that there is a 30 percent chance Brexit will be cancelled, a Government spokesman said: "The British people voted to leave the EU in the biggest democratic exercise in our history and the government is focused on delivering that result.
“MPs have already voted on a second referendum a number of times and rejected it."
Both Labour and Conservatives will pay a heavy price for trapping us in the twilight zone!
