Theresa May and the EU will not permit No Deal

An ITN reporter drinking at a hotel bar in Brussels overheard Olly Robbins, the British civil servant who is in charge of the Brexit negotiations and on whom Theresa May relies, with two colleagues in the bar saying that, in his view, he expects the choice for MPs to be either backing May’s deal or extending talks with the EU. He said he expects MPs in March to be presented with backing a reworked Brexit deal or a potentially significant delay to Brexit. He said:
“The issue is whether Brussels is clear on the terms of extension. In the end they will probably just give us an extension.”
As we all knew Theresa May's plan is to play MPs for fools and to run down the clock as Jeremy Corbyn pointed out in the House yesterday. John Rentoul the Blairite Political Editor of The Independent tweeted yesterday
Straw poll of 10 Westminster journalists this morning: average chance of no-deal Brexit 25%
but the journalists are foolish. There is, alas, little chance of No Deal. Neither the Tory or Labour leaders want it.
