    OT - EU straw poll...

    Preston "I am told that the cabinet secretary Mark Sedwill and the attorney general Geoffrey Cox informed Cabinet that if at the end of the Letwin process MPs pass a motion mandating the PM to pursue a new route through the Brexit mess - perhaps a referendum, or membership of the customs union, or some other softer future relationship with the EU - the PM and government would be in breach of the ministerial code and the law if they fail to follow MP's instructions. Or to put it another way, the PM would be obliged to endeavour to negotiate with the EU the revealed will of MPs, even if that revealed will involved a Brexit delay that requires the UK to participate in May's European parliamentary elections, or is at odds with the Tories' manifesto. So the impression created by the PM that she could ignore the results of the indicative votes process is not true - or so ministers who attended Cabinet tell me." If this is the case, which I have no reason to doubt, that 5-2 might be good value

    DUP would never support a VONC, they would be mad to do so, they have power now which they may never get again.

    This may assist- Peston Here is that amendment that - if picked by speaker tomorrow - would be debated by MPs and aims at turning the Brexit default from no-deal Brexit to a revocation of Article 50 and remaining in EU MV 3 to come back on Friday?

    Preston is not the most astute commentator. I can’t see there being sufficient support for an election.

    I’ve not said it’s imminent or definitely going to happen, you’re making stuff up, which is hardly surprising as you admit to being dishonest.

    No you’re not theorising, the veto is not being questioned. I don’t recall Merkel ever mentioning the Turks, linking the nonsense that was spouted by some of the Brexiteers to a statement from Merkel is disingenuous, even for you. Read Merkels statement then tell me what you think it means, it’s a simple question that might help the debate. Also consider if “the outgoing German Chancellor” is the only party to have raised this issue.
