The 6 Point Reality of Brexit - A Summary Of Where We Are

Realities on the ground, in 6 steps:
  1. The Chequers ‘deal’ is dead on arrival ;
  2. There’s currently no public attempt by May’s government to find an alternative ;
  3. May can’t get Labour MP votes without softening Brexit; can’t get Tory ones without hardening it ;
  4. Leadership contests take weeks. General elections take a minimum of 6-7 weeks ;
  5. Likeliest outcome of an early election would be another deadlocked parliament ;
  6. The *default* outcome is a no-deal exit on 29 March. And there’s no secret army of grown-ups to stop it.
