    What was it Clarke said about continuing to feed crocodiles? Something like "one day you run out of buns".

    The opposition should make support for the deal conditional on a PV confirmation of Johnson's "deal" v Remain.

    To continue the Telegraphs Shawshank analogy- Johnson emerges from the prison sewer covered in it. Is Arlene Foster waiting with a hose and the invoice? I supposed he’s tried bribery with the DUP, now it might be time for coercion.

    So my bet is Johnson puts this to the vote on Saturday (when the markets are closed), he loses but any Tory who doesn’t support it gets deselected, followed by a Brexit Party pact and general election to follow.

    The parliamentary arithmetic will be interesting for sure. Depends how many Labour mp’s ignore the whip.

    Looks like the opposition parties missed their window.

    So, of course, if a deal passes, nothing happens apart from we are out of all the EU decision making processes for two years, while we will have to abide by any new regulations we have no control over.

    How will those who think it's 'all over' feel about that? I suspect the Brexiteer press will keep very, very quiet about it.

    My guess is it will pass, aided by Labour MPs, which would be interesting considering so many Labour supporters have been telling those of us dubious about Labour that we’re by default Brexit enablers.

    Can someone help me? How is Johnson's deal any different to May's and does it not involve a border down the Irish Sea and NI being treated differently to the rest of the UK?

    In that context, I can't see how the DUP would support it. Guess the chances of the 'new' deal (rehashed version of May's) getting through parliament hinge on him getting enough support from Tory MPs particularly the ERG lot, and some Labour ones in leave areas.

    I reckon he'll probably do it, but regardless of if he gets it through or not, he'll then call a GE and most likely win. God help us all.

    Thought so but we're taking back control. So all is okay...

    It's the EU deal May (and Johnson and ERG, DUP) rejected in 2018!

    I think Bexiteers see it as the last chance to get Brexit done. Leave next week, Majority ina GE after neutering Farage, two years' to prepare for Canada + and try and find a way to wriggle out of the WA.

    Isn't the view here that BoJo does not want a deal, only to look like he is trying hard, get it rejected, preferably by Parliament, not the EU, and then exit with no deal?

    Stretching the analogy a bit but hey why not it’s a great film.

    No, of course they wouldn't;


    The precautionary principle in its broad terms is one of the compelling reasons for the UK to leave the EU.

    When I say 'broad terms', I am not, before you all pile in, referring to NI.

    I genuinely believe that he doesn't care - as long as he gets to be the PM.

    Can someone help me with the numbers? I don't see how it passes. Labour 'rebels' 20 tops and I seriously doubt that many when push comes to shove. Even with the DUP, doesn't amount to a pass.
