THE Conservatives’ disastrous performance in the recent local council elections finally seems to have persuaded Theresa May that she will have to compromise in order to reach an agreement with Labour to break the current Brexit impasse.

We will have to wait and see whether such an agreement is possible, and if so, whether there is then a majority for it to pass through Parliament.

In the meantime, Nigel Farage has said that: “If the Tories do a deal with Labour on the Customs Union they will be going into coalition with the opposition against the people.”

This is a load of rubbish, because the 2016 EU referendum was not a vote for a no-do deal Brexit; it was a vote to leave the EU on whatever terms the Government found acceptable.

No-one knows what form of Brexit, if any, the people would support, because they have never been asked to vote on this question!

The only way to find out is to have a people’s vote, but Nigel Farage doesn’t want this, because he is rightly scared that the people would then reject his no-deal Brexit.
