A damning verdict on Theresa May

242 the house of deputies approved yesterday evening, the Theresa May with the EU negotiated exit contract, but 391 spoke out against him. Your damning verdict precipitated the parliamentarians, although May tags had previously wrested from the EU, new "representations". For the Tory hardliners and Northern Ireland, the unionists this was not enough to reconcile with Mays Deal. And the Opposition does not want the Deal anyway. She adds that as an Alternative, a "soft" Brexit or a new Referendum to enforce.

May responded disappointed. She had put on a mood swing in the last Minute. Their entire calculus of the last few months was to come over to pull enough "rebels" from all sides. And in fact, in the course of the day, more and more terrified, had put Tories gritting his teeth behind your Deal.

"Real Changes"

A setback in May, however, as you already before the beginning of the Brexit debate is a letter with nine of the ten paragraphs on the Desk was suffered. Written by Queen's counsel Geoffrey Cox, the legal adviser to the government, a Minister with a seat in the Cabinet had it. This had been in the last two weeks, in the order of May in Brussels, in order to win the EU for a Change in the in the previous year, negotiated exit contract. He should confirm that the "contract changes" that were handed out May on Monday night in Strasbourg, were real Changes.

"Real Changes", namely the Tory had called for Brexiteers of May. They demanded that the United Kingdom cannot be of potentially unlimited period of time in the odious Backstop, the Ireland-guarantee of the Treaty.

Last November, Cox had explained to the house of Commons that the United Kingdom is the Backstop, as he was created, without the permission of the EU can never escape. This judgment led to the disastrous first defeat Mays, when voting on their Deal in January, with 202 against 432 votes.

The frantic theatrics of Mays lightning trip to Strasbourg proved to be a useless effort.

For a reversal in yesterday's "second round" was instructed May to the fact that Cox changed his advice. But as the lawyer delivered the Letter personally, it soon became clear that his letter was not a carte Blanche for Theresa May. Although Cox said that is the risk that the United Kingdom of the EU could be held against his will on duration, for example, in the EU customs Union, had been reduced by the Strasbourg agreements significantly"". Eliminates it was of course: "Legally speaking, the risk continues to exist unchanged."

As this set is known, slumped the pound on the exchanges sharply. Because Cox sober judgment, stand in sharp contrast to the hopeful words of Mays, in her lightning visit to Strasbourg on Monday evening. The head of government had announced that it had made "legally binding Changes," as if she had expected the Parliament. The Backstop clause in the exit contract had effectively been defused. The members could now stand confidently behind their Deal, she said.

"Nothing has changed"

The "Daily Mail" spoke of a "breakthrough", a success in the negotiations, which had been sealed by a kiss on the Hand from Michel Barnier"". "May lay claim to the victory," reported with respect to the "Times". A few leaves added, however, doubtfully: "Will this do?" Because many of the dozen or so sceptical back-benchers would have had to convince the head of government yesterday, to the contract through Parliament wanted to bring. 118 Tories had voted in January against them.

A whole number of its members the assurances from the continent took at least as the occasion for a personal change of course. In growing fear that there would be a "No Deal"-Brexit, if Mays should fail to Deal, signaled that they would support Jan this time.

Strasbourg, nothing has changed

"Ideally, your Deal is not", sighed the backbencher Nigel Evans. But what you could do? Two dozen "converts" had to be counted before the end of the debate. In the vote there were still a few more. Others, however, were found by Geoffrey Cox,’ the letter only confirmed in their rejection of the May Deals. Cox had been "brutally clear," said about the former Northern Ireland Minister Owen Paterson. His Tory colleague Andrew Bridgen and John Whittingdale shrugged their shoulders: "has Changed through Strasbourg."

the exit of the Treaty, had previously already stressed that the EU-Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Ireland head of government Leo Varadkar. The Strasbourg agreements "amended" the contract only as a "clear," insured both. They "replaced" the Backstop.

A self-advocate round of the political Right under the leadership of the Anti-EU called veteran Sir Bill Cash called on the party supporters to vote against the government bill. As then the party of the Democratic unionists (DUP) decided it could not support Mays Deal, like the cube. To had to at the latest this time May fear that had been the frantic theatrics of her lightning trip to Strasbourg as a useless effort.
