The Not-Brexit-or-not-Brexit goes into the next round. After it looked like on Monday again, as if nothing more, is still a question of anything goes, maybe it is. The Parliament and the government have committed themselves to exchange damage limitation, and so the current plan from see games.
Theresa May has announced on Tuesday evening after a thought, because in a seven-hour Cabinet meeting changed the course – at least a little bit. She has announced that she will seek the consent of all those in his own camp, the refuse of your Deal so far, the support. Instead, you want to reach out to the Opposition and with this together in an act of national unity to find a way.
However, May is still May, so you would have to in your proposal in the same condition einwob, could agree with this Opposition only with severe stomach pain: before the Prime Minister travels to Brussels, and again to a shift of the exit date asks, also the odious Deal to agree, the Parliament is already three times refused.
finally, it looked like there would be no agreement at all; then the Kingdom would be at 12. April excreted without a contract from the EU. The EU grit my teeth, but was prepared, the British Parliament wanted to prevent. Therefore, the developed the lower house on Tuesday, a new timetable had not wanted to leave, regardless of the Cabinet, on the.
After the Parliament had, in fact, can also be some in the second round of votes on an alternative course, the members would have preferred that of Theresa May, would come together again some experienced parliamentarians. And you presented an idea: Then you wanted to open up on Thursday in the lower house a bill, with the May should be forced, prior to the exit date 12. To go April to Brussels and ask for an extension. In this case, however, a long extension. Exactly, however, want to avoid May.
The Labour MP Yvette Cooper and the Tory Oliver Letwin had proposed on Tuesday to their house colleagues for the delay. Cooper reasoned: "The Prime Minister has a responsibility to prevent a No Deal. You have to make a proposal for a shift of the Brexit, and also tell you how long we need to be clear what we want. If the government of this responsibility is not fair, it is the duty of Parliament to see to that."
Brussels is little hope
What is not mentioned Cooper: Just on Tuesday morning, Michel Barnier, the chief negotiator of the EU had stressed, in Brussels, once again, that a long postponement of the exit date would only be approved with a very, very good reason from the EU-27. An extension of the process beyond the 22. May, would pose "significant risks for the EU" and therefore need a "very strong justification".
Now, May want a short extension, which is actually none at all if it goes according to the roadmap of the EU. The had 22 the British. May be given to the termination agreement, by wave.
May believe, it has to be done. Currently, it clings in Westminster, in Whitehall at straws. The night in the house, than the deputies – or at least those of the Opposition and a few Remainer under the Tories – still hoped for a breakthrough, was ended in tears and Frustration. The conservative MP Nick Boles, who had fought in favour of the UK joining in one Form or another, the European free trade Association Efta, had resigned in the night disappointed.
Although the government had officially lifted the whip, not the Tory MPs under pressure to vote for one of the Alternatives to Mays contract. Many Labour MPs, in turn, had been asked by their party to consent to one of the compromise models, voted against the Norway model of Boles and / or remaining in a customs Union, as it had proposed across party lines popular Tory Kenneth Clark.
At the end of all failed together, and as head of the Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn shortly before midnight suggested, could be Yes, as it May pre-power, to ask the lower house for a third round of voting, there arose a laughter that sounded more like a collective cry of despair.
How to do it now? Theresa May puts on a new path that contains a few softer lines. You may be, if the Opposition joins in, with the proposal of a customs Union travel to Brussels. In the EU, we would welcome that. There are but also in front of good-humored people who enjoy the idea that the UK ceases to be vertragslos from the EU, or to assume that the Stuff was still saved, if you only make.
Because of the inevitable Ex-foreign Minister, Boris Johnson, the twitters, the Tories would have to finally believe again in himself and to the Kingdom. And if they did, you could get in Brussels. Then there is Ex-Brexit-Minister David Davies, of the British know left, everything would have gone better if May had listened to him. Finance Minister Philip Hammond is said to have tried to May to convince you that you need to pair your Deal with a customs Union, and with a second Referendum to protect, but she wanted to know nothing. The next few days will show whether head of the Labour party Corbyn, who has shown himself so far May very brittle, now with you together. Very probably is not. (Editorial Tamedia)
