    I'm kinda sad that I didn't read this guy's musings before. He is simply a brilliant threader.

    This one is an epic read. First time I think that I've gone past post 4 or 5 or 6 in a tweet storm.

    The bill is poorly drafted, but in vey short form, tells May to go to the EU to get a Brexit extensions, without specifying how long it should be or what her basis for seeking it is (aside from no no deal, which the EU does not deem to be a reason). If the EU makes a counterproposal or a demand, like We said you needed to participate in European Parliament elections. We can say yes only if youve done what you need to do, the Government has to go back to Parliament, get their approval for what to do next, and only then return to Brussels. That is an impossible timetable given that the Council meets April 10 and the drop dead time is April 12.

    I'm a bit perplexed as to what the next move will be. Talks with Corbyn have resulted in May preparing a letter with a Brexit offer to Corbyn - although from this quote, it doesn't sound like it will be much of anything, except that a vote on any deal will include a vote for a 'confirmatory' referendum for parliament:

    The Guardian understands the Downing Street team of David Lidington, Steve Barclay, Julian Smith, Greg Clark and Gavin Barwell spent much of their time explaining the details of the withdrawal agreement, rather than proposing movement on any of Mays red lines.

    'Confirmatory' sounds like something, but could also be nothing - as in it will be a vote by the public to confirm the deal, but not to include a remain option? Regardless, given this option has been voted down 2 (?3) times, May probably thinks she has the votes to counter that one.

    The Cooper/Letwin bill was filibustered in the Lords yesterday, so will not now complete until the Monday sitting. Too much to ask that they just get back on to it today, although from the looks of some of them, I think the geriatrics need a few days off to cope with having to work a full day for their 300 quid. It is touch and go if it will receive royal assent in time to be law before May heads to the EU summit. Added to which, the bill is so full of holes not even May can miss getting out of the restrictions.

    Donald Tusk is recommending a new 'flextension' of 12 months allowing the UK to exit as soon as it has a signed deal. But will it be passed? Macron is said to favour only a short extension. May still has to have a realistic plan, it will be a first since A50 was invoked if she does. Then there's this:

    There is nothing on the Commons programme to do with Brexit next week...
