Still time to deal
If the Withdrawal Bill vote takes place next week, and as we revealed today there is no guarantee that it will, Mrs May will almost certainly lose.
What happens next will prove critical.
It is likely that the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn in No10 would rally the Tories into saving her in the light of Labour calling a no-confidence vote.
Mrs May should then return to the EU and demand the ability for the UK to end the backstop.
Amending this deeply unpopular proposal, which would likely trap us indefinitely in a customs union with the EU, would help salvage a deal.
Labour, meanwhile, do not have a plan.
One moment Mr Corbyn says Brexit can’t be stopped, then Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell says Labour could back a second referendum if they can’t get a General Election.
Yesterday, Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer said No Deal should not be on the ticket for a second ballot.
Shadow International Trade Secretary Barry Gardiner then contradicted him shortly afterwards to say it should be.
Huge amounts of investment cash has left Britain over fears of these incoherent clowns crashing the economy.
For all our disappointment with the PM’s proposal, we do not question her sense of duty.
The same cannot be said of Labour’s Marxists.
If Mrs May is to unite her party and pass a deal, she must first go back to the negotiating table with Brussels and redraw the plan.
It is not too late, PM.
End tax hell
HOW shameful that our tax burden is the highest it has been in half a century.
The Tories once stood for low taxes.
US President Donald Trump has shown that tax cuts make a real difference to ordinary people.
Slashing taxes here would help to turbo-charge our economy, too.
Instead, this Government focuses on new ways to hammer pockets.
There is little justification for slapping a 15p tax on sandwich packaging and doubling the 5p charge on plastic bags.
Plastic in our oceans is mostly from rivers in Asia and Africa, not from Britain.
This move will just load more costs and inconvenience on shoppers.
The Tories must have a serious rethink.
For Peter's sake
THE Sun today has doubled our reward to find the killers of Peter Gouldstone.
The 98-year-old WW2 veteran survived the Nazis only to be brutally beaten in his own home for his £10 telly.
Someone must know who did this.
Someone must stop protecting the savage cowards responsible.
This isn’t just a burglary. It’s murder.
