And no deal means No Deal:
Theresa May suffered another Brexit humiliation tonight as she was abandoned by Tory MPs from both wings of the party. The PM crashed to defeat in a crunch vote on her EU plan by 303 to 258 after furious Eurosceptics abstained claiming she was sneakily trying to take no deal off the table.
As any illusion of Conservative unity was shattered, Remainers also snubbed her for the opposite reason, that she was not dismissing the idea of crashing out. Mrs May did not even bother to enter the chamber to hear the grim result, with Jeremy Corbyn demanding to know where she was and taunting that she ‘can’t keep running the clock down’.
The blow came despite Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay desperately trying to reassure mutinous MPs that no deal is not being taken off the table – and warning that Brussels will conclude the UK’s ‘resolve is weakening’.
Who gives a damn what Brussels concludes? Everyone has known since the day after the referendum that at the very last minute, the Europeans will make some kind of fake concession to pretend to appease British demands, the British Prime Minister will declare “peace in our time” and precisely no one will be fooled by the cheap theatrics. Again.
