So will May survive a vote of no confidence?
What exactly happens when the HOC rejects the Brexit plans?

Another vote is the only way. One where you rank your preference from 1 to 3. Out / in / propesed deal.

There’s been a shift in the Tory media towards backing May in the past few days - they know it’s this deal or “no brexit at all”

Not sure that’s right, just have a look at the front page of the Terrorgraph website (you probably won’t be able to read most of the articles, which are now behind the ‘premium’ paywall, but you’ll get the idea!) - all about how no deal would be fine, how unacceptable the deal is, how the deal can be re-negotiated and some other stuff slagging off remainers.

Indeed. The Mail has now gone 380 and is anti=Brexit. Bit to late as they have caused most of the damage in the first place, but better late than never. Interesting piece on it here:
Yet the editorial in today’s Daily Mail about the Tory party and Brexit is such a striking change of course that an exception to normal self-restraint is in order.

The headline on its leader – “Saboteurs endangering the nation” – may have seemed like normal Daily Mail fare. This was the newspaper, after all, which in its “Who will speak for England?” headline in 2016 pushed David Cameron aside and placed itself firmly at the head of the leave campaign; which used stories like “Plans to let 1.5m Turks into Britain” to make leave’s final push explicitly anti-migrant; which charged Britain’s impartial judges with being “Enemies of the people” for ruling that parliament was sovereign in the Brexit process; which welcomed Theresa May’s 2017 election launch with a call to “Crush the saboteurs”; and which, under the snarling headline “Proud of yourselves?”, excoriated 11 Tory MPs who backed a meaningful vote on Brexit for their “treachery”.

Yet the tone and, in particular, the focus of this morning’s leader were, in fact, very different from that confident in-your-face era. Instead of firing up the Brexiters for yet another act of anti-European contempt and defiance, as it had done for so long, the Mail this week turned its fire on them instead. It denounced the “arch-Brexiteers” for their “self-promotion and peacocking” and their efforts to undermine Mrs May. Former Mail heroes like Iain Duncan Smith, David Davis and Mr Johnson were dismissed as “vulgar bit-part players” and “back-stabbing plotters”, – and above all Mrs May, “the only person” who can secure an “acceptable outcome” and “sensible deal”. :lol: :lol:

I've avoided brexit related threads mostly but I find May's latest proposal quite interesting.

- Indefinite status quo (custom's union) until a deal is worked out at some point in the next century.

The European Union have made it clear that this is essentially take it or leave it territory. It is either this or no Deal. There isn’t time for anything else, no second referendum, no renegotiation, no significant extension of article 50.

Hell; at least now everyone has a concrete document to accept or reject !

My worry is that the Brexiteers in the pizza club, are planning on fucking up even that, by trying to tack on amendments during its passage in Westminster, so they can get it rejected, & have their own wet dream, a No Deal, & a way to blame the EU

Not what I heard on the news. EU correspondent saying if the deal is rejected by Parliament it could be tweaked to get it through.

Fixed.

With the Daily Mail now u-turning and backing remain, I can see a lot more people having second thoughts. Hmm, I wonder if the Mail will get behind a peoples' vote?

The DM appears to be backing May's deal. It's an open question whether or not that is actually remaining. I wonder what will happen if the EU refuse a trade deal just to put the backstop in operation. Could that actually stand for long? I doubt it.

I haven't looked at the deal in depth but is it fair to say that it's a de facto extension?

Seems reasonable from where we stand currently. I just don't see how a no deal works.

Nothing's agreed until everything is agreed.

Some EU members feel Barnier has given away too much. Do you think the UK would be open to further discussion of any tweaks required by the EU?

If there was any sniff of a possibility of a second referendum the EU would extend article 50

Deal is a shambles, as is May. However, I think at the moment there are too many Tory wets in the Party to depose her. The ERG may have jumped too soon. She would definitely be ousted after deal fell in Parliament, but may not be ousted if the vote takes place next week.

If she survives a vote next week, that's 12 months immunity meaning the deal can fall in Parliament, she can go back to the EU who will make superficial changes, and she'll put the deal back to (a fearful remain) Parliament who will pass it at the second time of asking under no-deal pressure.

That's how I see it playing out (and I hope tf I'm wrong).
