Warning from the past for Mrs May:
Governments and Minister that lie to their electorate – as e,g, the Liberal Democrats in the guise of Clegg making election promises that he did not keep over University fees (like May and many of her Remainer Cabinet lied over Brexit) loose support, and MPs.
In the 2015 election the number of LD MPs declined from 57 to only 8 MPs. In the 2017 election, that became 12 MPs.

So 305/7 =?

To me this looks like the Conservatives have been, since 1998 and Haige, converted to the norm of "EU Democratic Accountability" where the mere plebs - you and me - not longer count and have no say in the election process at all: "Just do as your told and vote for THE PARTY".

"Any resetting of the clock would simply extend the paralysis, not speed up convergence toward a good agreement. Giving May another three months, or even three years, would do nothing to create incentives to reveal hidden preferences or to drop fictitious red lines." Varoufarkis

Varoufakis has made a good case for allowing the Art 50 deadline of March 29 to reach its legal end. His argument is that once the 'No-deal' is real, only then will the negotiations be able to proceed in a less confrontational way.

" This rule undermines meaningful negotiations. Negotiators focus on the end date and conclude that the other side has no incentive to reveal its hand before then. Whether the allotted negotiation period is two months, two years, or two decades, the result is the same: the stronger side (the European Commission in Brussels in this case) has an incentive to run down the clock and make no significant compromises before the eleventh hour.."

Furthermore "Any resetting of the clock would simply extend the paralysis, not speed up convergence toward a good agreement. Giving May another three months, or even three years, would do nothing to create incentives to reveal hidden preferences or to drop fictitious red lines."
