Theresa May wants MPs to decide that her bad Brexit deal is better than no deal after all – but there are other options -—A majority of MPs oppose a no-deal departure and they could find a way to assert it – if necessary, by extending the two-year Article 50 process beyond March, while Labour could table a motion calling for a general election

MPs must not bow to Theresa May's pressure on this Brexit proposal for fear of no deal – there are other options. If May's deal were shot down, I believe the Commons would find a way to halt a cliff-edge departure – whether by calling for more negotiations, an extension of the Article 50 process beyond next March or a Final Say referendum
