I suggest that this is the only real “way forward”. T. May needs to realize her “Deal” is anathema. The M.P.s need to realize that there is NO “good deal” available (or even really possible as everyone wants something antithetical to the other). Essentially folks need a “moment of clarity” to realize that they are in a deadlock and all the possible “ways to escape” are bad.
What do you do when every choice in the game is a loosing move? Stop playing the “make a deal” game. The winning move is not to play the deal making game.
Just end it.
How do you end it? Leave. There will be many decades of optional negotiations with anyone and everyone in the world, including the E.U. Those negotiations can take place without a time limit, with no Sword Of Damocles hanging over your head. (AND with some $40-$50 BILLION kept in your pocket from not paying “dues” to a club that doesn’t respect you).
In this case I think there is much good advice in our musical heritage.
So what I propose is just that folks who want to end this, now, play this “Theme Song” at all times and places possible. Preferably all around Parliament. Daily. Hourly. Constantly…
Yes, it really is that simple.
There comes a point in all negotiations where you must be willing to just push back your chair and step away from the table (and the “deal”). This is that time. I’ve done a LOT of deals (many a year for decades). Nothing clarifies things to your opponent so much as saying “Well then, Call me if you change your mind. I’m needed at my next deal…”
So T. May has squandered her time on a pocket full of sunshine promises. There’s no need for the rest of you (us) to follow her down the drain. It’s been “the good fight” but time to lick the wounds and “move on” to the next gig. It’s time for the UK to come home. “I am leaving, I am leaving but the fighter still remains”…
No “deal”? “Well, it’s all right. everything will work out fine… Happy to be here happy to be alive…”
Then there’s those tens of £Billions you don’t have have to hand over as “money for nothing” and instead can “take the money and run”:
Sometimes the best wisdom is simple folk wisdom…
