My impression is that the atmosphere for negotiating Brexit has been
poisoned over a lengthy period. TM has one of the hardest jobs in the
world. She is under constant crossfire, so it might be better to form a
special "task force" with the EU. A neutral and calm place is important.
Proper negotiating is about to begin, so why not...Switzerland? Just a thought.
And the parliament will regain its freedom of action.

And that is well-deserved, because for 2 years she's basically done "nothing" and avoided finding any "consent" over Brexit with the opposition or even within her own party!  :pouting-face

Erm, you do know there is a "summit" in Brussels this week? Today, I think.
Also, May spoke to the "mother of all chancellors" yesterday (Merkel). ;)

Word from diplomatic circles has it that the EU will agree to a Brexit delay (for a few weeks at least).

Another extension until Oct 31st:
Quote
European Union leaders have granted the UK a six-month extension to Brexit, after five hours of talks in Brussels.

The new deadline - 31 October - averts the prospect of the UK having to leave the EU without a deal on Friday, as MPs are still deadlocked over a deal.

European Council president Donald Tusk said his "message to British friends" was "please do not waste this time".

Theresa May, who had wanted a shorter delay, said the UK would still aim to leave the EU as soon as possible.

The UK must now hold European elections in May, or leave on 1 June without a deal.
