I saw that earlier on the beeb and remembered what I wrote here last month.

I've been thinking over the last few weeks that May has been playing a clever game, I've actually had some sneaky admiration for the way she has stuck at it and got an agreement, probably the only one that could possibly work. But of course parliament will reject it and she'll just hold up her hands and say "Ok, I've done my best, there isn't a better agreement possible, what do you want to do? Let's ask the people again!"

And I reckon she's confident that a 2nd referendum will vote to remain, which is what she wanted all along.

At the end of the day the whole thing is a farce and immensely embarrassing and damaging to the UK.
Now she's mentioning publicly what I think she might have wanted all along, a 2nd referendum (although I can't see parliament allowing it). And still, the whole thing is a farce.
