1 Parliament has to agree on some sort of withdrawal agreement before it is put to a second referendum. They still seem unable to do that.
2 If parliament did agree on some form of withdrawal agreement, the second referendum would probably be worded: "Do you want to leave the EU under the withdrawal agreement approved by parliament or to remain in the EU?" I can see a lot of people being very unhappy with that. In order to hold a second referendum there has to be a second referendum act and that has to go through the full parliamentary voting process, Commons and Lords. I cannot see a referendum with just withdrawal agreement and remain as the options getting a majority. Equally I cannot see a referendum with no-deal on it getting a majority. The no-deal option failed by a very large margin in the indicative votes.
We progress deeper and deeper into "Not every problem has a solution" territory. Watching interviews with a variety of people in Brussels it is clear that they are getting more frustrated, more fatigued and, in some cases, more angry.

You are correct in that you could be completely wrong, but then again so could I. I am sick of hearing that they are fatigued etc, tell that to people who work twelve hours a night or people who have nothing, Not even knowing where their next meal is coming from!Toebs wrote:scooby wrote:I have no idea what they may be but if it's deadlock in the UK parliament then there is only the EU who could move on some things.
I may be completely wrong, but I begin to get the feeling the EU have lost hope and so will not be trying more. They have no heart for it.
