Prof [Sir] John Curtice provides a nugget of insight into the Conservative (blue) gang’s predicament.
On the result:
“so I think the honest truth is that neither side can claim on the base of these results that voters have sent a clear signal… extreme options of leaving without a deal and having a second referendum as the polls are suggesting two most popular options”
On Conservative Party options:
“brexit vote is not going to disappear unless and until the Conservatives deliver brexit …next Tory Prime Minister is probably going to have to try to work out a way of delivering brexit within the arithmetic of the current House of Commons because the option of going to the country …was unlikely to look very attractive”
In others words the blue gang will be decimated if they dare initiate a general election before Brexit is resolved! The blue gang members therefore have two options capitulate to the EU and a lookalike May deal or go for the “hard/WTO” Brexit!
What will it be? In, out, half out, half in? And you shake it all about , you do the hokey pokey, you turn yourself around that’s what we’re all about. Forgive my humour, I could not resist it.

MPs took part in a debate on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) on 15 January 2015.
Business, Innovation and Skills Minister Matthew Hancock is replying for the government.
“We are, as a nation, deeply committed to free and fair exchange,” he says.
He adds: “TTIP is about free and fair trade.”
TTIP is free and fair? Then why the secrecy?
Why are only a handful of MPs allowed into the reading room without recording equipment to see the documents.
Lord Livingston is amongst the few that has access to the documents. Lord Livingstone will be at the European Scrutiny committee meeting on 11th Feb 2015.
