    However, the legal risk remains unchanged that if through no such demonstrable failure of either party, but simply because of intractable differences, that situation does arise, the United Kingdom would have, at least while the fundamental circumstances remained the same, no internationally lawful means of exiting the Protocol’s arrangements, save by agreement.
    fucked it [emphasis mine]
    That's May's deal sunk (sunker?) (sunkest?).

    He did. But how could he not have?

    Not a fan, but you have to be fair to the man: he had no cards to play with; none.

    Sunker shuuuurely. Sunkest would imply a third try. There won't be one.

    Might that be the silver lining? That the attorney general's legal advice is still honest and clear? I really thought he was going to be arm-twisted into giving advice with no basis in reality and that May would try to get through the day without that bubble popping.

    I doubt Cox would ever suicide his (legal) career just to please May at this point. He's a barrister; he's not one for taking one for the team.

    Anyway, his chances of getting away with it were nill even before he published his legal advice; which he surely must have realised.

    At least now he can say he did his best in an impossible situation. No one can think worse of him for doing that. It's not like May can really do anything for him to offset anyway ...

    Very difficult for an English AG to do something like that when there are multiple more experienced individuals who could/would challenge it.

    He would’ve shopped it around his chambers before drafting his advice anyway. It’s not really something capable of being obfuscated.

    Best May can hope for now is for the ERG and the DUP to abstain ... it might (emphasis on might) limit the loss to an amount that calls for her head will be muted ...

    Arlene Foster now wants to talk to May first. Really wants more time to 'absorb' the legal advice. And let's face it, if she puts her foot down on May, she'll get it. Even if it is only one more day.

    Even though I still doubt that the DUP will support May in the end. After all, the Irish are in favour. And the DUP's instinct is to always go with: Noooooooooooo!

    And now Rees-Mogg basically begging for an extra day, but Bercow hasn't seen an amendment tabled to that effect, so no!

    In fact, Bercow hasn't selected any of the amendments tabled, so straight on to the vote on the government's motion at 7pm!

    Ohhh dear ...

    I'm going to the driving range this evening and by the time I've hit 100 balls nowhere near straight I want an accurate forecast as to how entertaining the next few weeks are going to be.
