The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss Theresa May’s last-ditch plea to MPs to back her treacherous Brexit deal (which is in essence no Brexit at all) or risk never leaving the European Union.

The Prime Minister said failure to vote through her deal when it comes before the Commons for the third time this week would mean “we will not leave the EU for many months, if ever”.

She said a fresh rejection of her blueprint would likely mean the UK participating in the EU Parliament elections – an outcome she branded a “collective political failure”.

And she is set to tell MPs voting down her deal would leave the UK in a “Hotel California Brexit” where “you can check out, but you can never leave”.

The Government will ask for a long Brexit extension from the EU if MPs refuse a third time to back the Brexit deal Mrs May struck with the bloc.

The Prime Minister has been in last-ditch talks with her confidence and supply partners the DUP, as well as eurosceptics in her own party, in an effort to win their support.

In an article for the Sunday Telegraph, she said voting down her deal again would mean negotiations going back to “square one” and a delay so long the UK would have to vote in new MEPs.

“The idea of the British people going to the polls to elect MEPs three years after voting to leave the EU hardly bears thinking about,” she said.

“There could be no more potent symbol of Parliament’s collective political failure.”

She added: “If Parliament can find a way to back the Brexit deal before European Council, the UK will leave the EU this spring, without having to take part in the European elections, and we can get on with building our future relationship with the EU.

“If it cannot, we will not leave the EU for many months, if ever.”

According to the Sunday Times she will refer to the Eagles song Hotel California as she makes her final pitch to MPs this week – a song critics have used to describe her own deal.

The DUP is asking for involvement in the future trade negotiations with the EU in return for supporting the Brexit deal, according to the Sunday Telegraph.

But a spokesman for the party insisted it was not demanding new cash for Northern Ireland – after claims it could use its confidence and supply deal with the PM as leverage.

Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will this week appeal to fellow opposition parties to back his preferred form of Brexit which would see the UK remain in a customs union with the bloc.

May hasn’t succeeded yet. There is a third option, one very few will like, yet one many will use if May thinks the people will simply roll over and ignore this mess. More over the EU have yet to finalise any deal.

Sorry, but all the evidence is that May has let the EU lead her into the place she wanted to go. She didn’t “stumble into to it”, She just made sure it looks that way to a few. Most of us can see she planned this from the get go.

True! May is a sly witch, she is leading British voters by the nose.

Round about the cauldron go;
In the poison’d entrails throw.
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and nights hast thirty one
Swelter’d venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

The British contemporary witch May will go round about that Brexit cauldron forever. Who will stop her? Certainly British voters cannot stop her. She will probably throw in “poisoned entrails” forever.

What a cunning plan – set right from the start. Put a staunch Remainer in charge of Brexit negotiations – who will secretly work for the EU. One who consistently lies, who consistently claims that she will deliver Brexit, consistently spewing “Brexit means Brexit”, “NO Deal is better than a Bad Deal”, and “We will leave the EU on 29th March”. Get everyone to believe you. But behind the scenes – the aim is to secretly sabotage Brexit. Deliberately make all the wrong decisions. Trigger Article 50 without a plan in place. Call a General Election to try to get… Read more »

BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg just tweeted this:

“This might sound a bit boring but it’s massive – minister tells me he’s now made this a ‘constitutional crisis’ – as the law stands we are leaving the EU in ten days – Speaker has just said the PM cant have another go at getting her deal through.”

Does this mean we crash out after all? That’s what Theresa May always wanted. She pretended not to, of course.

Let’s hope that this is true. Many rumours are making the round in GB these days … And the British people are being duped.
