Theresa May needs to become a mediator to help break the Brexit deadlock in Parliament, former prime minister John Major has said.

He wants MPs to be given a vote on all Brexit options, indicating their preference on the way forward.

Mrs May should consider dropping her red lines "in the national interest" and become a facilitator to find out what Parliament wants, he said. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-46931114


Mediator to the Tory Party is all May has been doing.

The two main news stories this week have been the problems the Prime Minister has faced, and the Duke of Edinburgh being involved in a car crash.

In one of them, people have been saying for ages that the activity is clearly not a good idea, that it could put people at risk, but advice was ignored, stubborn pride was a factor, and so they pressed on, but couldn't clearly see where they were going, and ended up in a ditch whilst causing harm to other people.

In the other one, the Queen's husband had an accident.

According to the Telegraph, May "is considering amending the Good Friday Agreement as part of a fresh attempt to unblock the Brexit logjam".
Presumably, any changes to the Good Friday Agreement would need to be ratified via a referendum in Northern Ireland = an extension to A50, and probably a lengthy one at that. And if the proposals are rejected, Lord only knows where that leaves us?

It's like the last hundred years never happened and Ireland is still ours to do with as we like.
