Fools and shysters manœuvre for a second referendum

Dalrymple writes that the present impasse

will probably lead to Britain never leaving the European Union.

He explains that

except for a hard core of about a fifth of Parliament, the legislators are adamantly opposed to Britain leaving without a deal; and the Union, knowing this, has no reason to negotiate further.

But the legislators

will not agree to the deal as negotiated. They want a second referendum, in the hope that the result of the first will be reversed. (And if it is, there will never be a third.)

An extension to Britain’s departure

will be granted only if Britain has a concrete proposal to offer—and the only such offer it can make is to hold the second referendum.
