What to do if a good friend has maneuvered itself into a cul-de-SAC and alone is no way to find out? Offer help, of course. The friend needs to want to accept this help, of course, when the story is off the hook.
In London today, to the Showdown. If not mistaken, is Theresa May not find a majority for Brexit Deal. Then Weeping and gnashing of teeth will be rattling deafening increase, on the island as on the continent. No side is really the rules prepared on a "hard Brexit" without a contract, and Transition.
