Those British who voted for Brexit were unduly influenced by Sycorax. You'll find that most of those Brexiteers have A+ blood which constitutes 42% of the UK population.

Brexit or BRUK, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The politicking and economics of outrageous referendum,
Or spin yarns up against a channel of troubles

A pathetic British Prime Minister went to Brussels to again beg for a better deal. EU bluntly told her she already has the only possible deal. Then asked her to leave so that 27 other nations could discuss her. When PM May was brought back, German Chancellor Merkel recommended she do what is responsible - a second referendum. Especially since Brexit supporters, after the first referendum, admitted to outright lying to intentionally deceive British citizens.

Britain needs leaders replaced - especially PM May and Labor party leader Corbyn. Both not only want Brexit. Both are so destructive as to not even agree with each other. Neither are working for UK citizens. Both are playing power politics for personal advancement. Both fear what would happen if Britain does what the German Chancellor bluntly (and accurately) recommended.

Somehow a second referendum would be undemocratic ... since British citizens would now be informed when voting.

They could leave the EU; then, hold another referendum to vote for either rejoining the EU; or, becoming a US territory (like our other islands).

I get 75% of my Brexit news from Jonathan Pie. Now I can't wait to hear his take on May offering to step down if they take her deal. That has got to be unprecedented.

This ball is all tee'd up for you, Mr Pie.

PM May is down to her last option. Her promise to resign will change the votes of many who voted against because they dislike her pathetic leadership.

It also says to the many who want Brexit but voted against the deal, this is your last chance. That also has gotten some to announce they will change their vote.

Parliament had something like 12 resolutions - for everything from May's deal to a second referendum. All were rejected. It says how pathetic both May and Corbyn are as leaders. It says there is no responsible leadership representing the UK. Only people who crave their own personal advancement and self serving biases are the leaders.

Both May and Corbyn want Brexit. Even those two self serving leaders (playing politics for their own agenda) cannot come to an agreement. And where are people such as Boris Johnson who promoted this mess for his own personal advancement? He cannot be found. He did what he wanted. Wreck shit. And has left the UK to burn.

Of twelve votes that failed in Parliament, one that came closest to passing called for a second referendum. Now that British citizens know the truth (were not brainwashed by people who want to wreck shit), that would be their best option.

But both May and Corbyn oppose a second referendum. It would do nothing to protect their power and position.

Britain needs to find a leader. It currently voted for and therefore has none.

It was a major concession by PM May. Her entire top staff was called in, all cell phones were confiscated and locked away, and (apparently) she finally listened to advise.

As a result, PM may will talk with Labour leader Corbyn. These two pathetic leaders are expected to stop shouting cheapshots.

Actually not a good thing. Since what Britain needs - a second referendum - will not happen. But finally the two pathetic leaders have finally found their brains. And will now do what moderates do. Talk. Negotiate. Reach a conscientious. As like adult leaders; not emotional children.

You're overlooking the possibility of a stalemate with no progress.
