Aside from the processings happening within the Scottish courts Johnson’s need to get the Brexit laws by way of the Commons will spotlight as soon as once more his greatest weak point – his battle ever to win a Commons vote.
This has been amplified by the in the present day’s occasions with all of the 10 DUP MPs voting for the Letwin modification. The idea should be this grouping, who providend “confidence and provide” help to TMay following her lack of the CON majority at GE2017 are actually firmly within the opposition camp over Brexit points.
The problem right here is that the standing of Northern Eire goes proper to the guts of what they stand for and that’s going to override different political issues. The DUP care extra in regards to the Union than they do about Brexit. It is so simple as that.
I simply wonder if this all makes a a confirmatory referendum that bit extra seemingly as a means of avoiding the impasse.
Within the run as much as October 31st count on to see extra huge Commons votes.
Ladbrokes make it 2/1 that there’ll be “One other UK EU Referendum earlier than finish 2020”.
