How many times did we hear from Jeremy Corbyn that Theresa May is in denial over her Brexit deal? Her party was terribly split down the Brexit line. And instead of party influence her to reject a dead deal, Tories have gone to the collective denial, and voted her to renegotiate!
Sound surreal, doesn’t it? Not if you have read previous sequels of the drama:
So, today, only 58 days before March 29th, the hard Brexit date, House of Commons, thanks to Tory leavers votes, has authorized the prime minister to renegotiate her deal around the key point: Backstop…
This, in essence, is a battle for an open market: UK wants to exit EU but to use all the advantages of the common market with EU.

And what about Jeremy Corbyn? Is he also in denial by insisting on an impossible deal with EU? Maybe. I would rather say that he is using the situation to expose this Tory Government as hopelessly incompetent, and force new parliamentary elections.
Everything we have in this saga, except — the will of UK voters. Can’t wait for the next sequel. How about you?
