Maybot sends final message from Brussels: “My battery is low and it’s getting dark”

Maybot, the plucky little robot that won a nation’s heart with her lengthy mission to deliver a Brexit deal, has finally expired, delivering a last poignant message that her battery was low and it was getting dark.

I do think it will be May's deal if Yvette Cooper's vote to prevent no deal passes next week.

Britain may actually get good governance if the backstop kicks in, i.e. tied to EU rules with no bloody say.
Parliament could move to an EEA deal and have public support due to being able “to get on with it.” Most voters haven’t a fucking clue what any of it means.

EEA comes with an extra advantage of being in the same club as Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

With an economy the size of the UK in the EEA you may suddenly have a very influential counter group to the EU that will mean the EU having to deal with a counter narrative. You know what the Brexiters, who have always hated Europe never mind the freedom of movement, have always yearned for.

However that would be too sensible. Slash and burn instead. One of the few things I agree with Peter Hitchens on is the only seriously possible way to leave Europe is on EEA terms.
