I don't understand what you're asking Foro.
How is May or anyone else going to make people vote for a Brexit deal, when they just voted against this one. Hard to see a big change in numbers, since the deal cannot be made (much) better. Maybe I'm wrong here, but we'll see.I don't understand what you're asking Foro.
Exactly she's fucked. Rees-Mogg and his crowd of Tories, the DUP and Corbyn are all hard brexit at all costs but are trying to engineer a situation whereby it looks like there's no choice but hard brexit rather than having the balls to campaign for hard brexit outright. Doesn't matter a damn what deal is made, the no deal-ites have the numbers in this parliament to block anything.How is May or anyone else going to make people vote for a Brexit deal, when they just voted against this one.

You're right, as far as I know. She has a few days to come back to parliament with a plan B but the Attorney General told parliament yesterday that "plan B is plan A" - they can't get anything more from the EU. Theresa will start to reach out to "senior parliamentarians from all parties" after she presumably wins the no confidence vote but it stinks of "too little, too late". She should have done this a long time ago to have a chance at a majority in parliament. However, it's likely that any deal she presented would have lost anyway. Labour would vote against it to force a general election, and the Liberal Democrats and SNP want to prevent Brexit all together.How is May or anyone else going to make people vote for a Brexit deal, when they just voted against this one.

Not correct. Corbyn wants to remain in the customs union and maintain a closer relationship with the EU i.e. a softer Brexit. There is no majority in parliament for a No Deal, or anything that enables Brexit at all in fact.Rees-Mogg and his crowd of Tories, the DUP and Corbyn are all hard brexit at all costs
It was a dumb move, and that became clear before we voted as the Conservative manifesto was shit and it turned out that Theresa May can't campaign but Jeremy Corbyn has been speaking to people on the streets for his entire political career. Even if she kept David Cameron's majority then this deal would not have passed the "meaningful vote" due to the staggering number of Conservative MPs who voted against it.Calling that snap election was probably the stupidest thing that she could have done.
Indeed, which is why he's always been critical of the EU and is reluctant to call for a second referendum. I think EU legislation prevents full scale nationalization of public service which Jezza is obsessed with. I keep on hearing about the customs union from Labour MPs though, but there's not a consistent message from them. Jezza and John McDonnell (Shadow Chancellor) seem to say different things quite often.I am afraid that some of his traditional socialist policies would unlikely be feasible maintaining a closer relationship with the EU.
Plaid Cymru signed the No Confidence motion with Jeremy Corbyn. They would never back the Conservatives. As for the DUP, Arlene Foster and Nigel Dodds have been very clear that the DUP will support the government as they have no interest in seeing Jeremy Corbyn become PM. A former Labour MP who now sits as an independent has said he won't back the motion as he voted in favour of a No Confidence motion in Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader (which JC lost heavily) a couple of years ago - but that doesn't mean he will support the government.Apparently DUP and Plaid Cymru are in discussions to back the Conservatives
A second referendum would be an absolute disaster for all involved, the possible outcome are:So, if another referendum is held, will it just be "Heavy Brexit or no Brexit at all" or will "Negotiated Brexit" be thrown in as a third option, i.e. accepting May's deal with the EU?
