"The thing is, the best way to understand Theresa Mayís predicament is to imagine that 52 percent of Britain had voted that the government should build a submarine out of cheese.

Now, Theresa May was initially against building a submarine out of cheese, obviously. Because itís a completely insane thing to do.

However, in order to become PM, she had to pretend that she thought building a submarine out of cheese was fine and could totally work.

"Cheese means cheese," she told us all, madly. Then she actually built one.

Itís sh*t. Of course it is. For Godís sake, are you stupid? Itís a submarine built out of cheese.

So now, having built a sh*t cheese submarine, she has to put up with both Labour and Tory Brexiters insisting that a less sh*t cheese submarine could have been built.

Theyíre all lying, and they know it. So does everybody else. We've covered this already, I know, but itís cheese and itís a submarine. How good could it possibly be?

Only she canít call them out on this. Because she has spent the past two years also lying, by pretending she really could build a decent submarine out of cheese.

So thatís where we are. On balance, I think this analogy works fine, perhaps except for the submarine and cheese parts, which need a little work."

As you pointed out in a previous post Mr C, the government can call a referendum whenever they wish. However it takes legislation and the approval of parliament to enact one.
It took Cameron's administration some 14 weeks to get the necessary approval for such an event.

Even the most optimistic of those calling for a second referendum realise that time is against them. The House is also not currently n favour of such a move either.


Article 50 can be extended. The House is in no mood to accept May's Brexit. If the choice is between a no deal Brexit and no Brexit, a second referendum is likely.
