Oh can Brexit entertain. I mean it is quite sad overall, but as it has developed into farce at least one is able to enjoy the show. It is like a live running of The Thick of It blended with Laurel and Hardy.
Today stands to provide some epic moments. Firstly, Bercow surely, as noted by my very insightful co-authors ND and BQ (I am sucking up to you both as I am away again next week...), Bercow will not be able to resist picking only version of remain for the vote - he might throw in No Deal as a bone to be knawed on by the Remain Parliament and to make them feel better about some more top-draw virtue signalling.
Then, very likely, May's Deal will not be one of the top 3 options. The top 3 options on votes are likely to be Corbyn's carbuncle of Customs Union and Single Market membership, Remain and Revoke. What other point is there to this whole charade if not to pick a non-Brexit option?
On the back of this, we will get the comedy of May finally quitting in disgrace as she can't pass her Deal - which is sweetly ironic because it comes just as the point where she has bullied the ERG into submission but, alas, not the DUP who have it seems fled to the Remain side at the finish line, so it can't pass. There the DUP can sit, somehow blaming the Tories for the mess they have caused.
From here the entertainment gets better. A new Tory remain leader will now have to delay Brexit by a bit more and ask for a much softer deal, which hardly means leaving the EU at all. When the Tories then finish their election in a few weeks, a hard leaver will be in situ, but stuck with a new deal that involves not leaving very much. Hubris indeed. With the DUP no longer trusted due to their betrayal, a general election in 2019 becomes inevitable.
On the Labour side, the penny has finally dropped that they are not voting to remain, so the anguish of the voters will also be felt. However, a soft remain is a victory of sorts to be claimed and the far-left are very good at claiming victory when there has been none. So, for real laughs, we may well end up with Jeremy Corbyn as PM in 2019.
To top it off the banning or porn and memes on the internet by the EU just at the point when they are about to crush the UK rebellion is also fabulous timing. It echoes the 2016 migrant crisis for unfortunate highlighting of the terrible aspects of the EU at just the wrong moment and so losing the referendum in the first place. Just as they win, the goodwill is squandered.
Now none of this may happen, but the bizarre scenario above seems the most likely path of events from here.
