Mad May to table WAB

It’s no secret that Brexit is the bitterest of pills for Westminster to swallow. Just how poisonous remains to be seen, but judging by the prime minister’s latest move it induces a most severe form of insanity.

After weeks of speculation, Theresa May is poised to put her historically loathed deal to the Commons for a fourth time. She got around parliamentary rules, which dictate you can’t table the same motion, again and again, the last time by removing the pointless Political Declaration. Now she’s going the other way, by introducing the Withdrawal Agreement Bill. The vote is set for early June.
