Theresa May has just announced her ‘new’ Brexit plan. It amounts to:
- try to isolate Jeremy Corbyn
- ignore the second-referendum advocate
- hope to build a coalition of northern Labour MPs, ERG Tories & DUP
- seek a legally-binding addendum to the Withdrawal Agreement from the EU regarding the backstop
If you can’t spot a difference between that and her ‘plan’ for the past two months, that’s because there isn’t one – and the EU will not give anything more than non-binding assurances.
Plan B = more of Plan A – which isn’t really a plan anyway.
May is intellectually and politically bankrupt and running down the clock to force MPs to choose between a no-deal Brexit and her even worse deal.
