Großbritannien werde den Brexit meistern. Aber die Briten würden nicht noch „99 Tage warten“, sie hätten bereits genug gewartet, sagte Johnson mit Blick auf die langwierigen Verhandlungen mit den Noch-EU-Partnern.
Can the prime minister dare to dream that her Brexit deal will pass – perhaps as soon as next week?
It is striking how Brexiters from the ERG group are lining up to tell me how reasonable they are trying to be.
Corbyn (69) hat sich sein Weltbild aber in den 1960er- und 1970er-Jahren zurechtgelegt. Damals wie heute gilt Brüssel bei der harten Linken als „Europa der Bosse“. Der lebenslange Aktivist ohne Uni-Abschluss und Berufsausbildung nennt sich stolz einen Internationalisten. –
A number of Leave MPs are indicating they could climb down on their opposition to the withdrawal deal. They are susceptible to arguments by the PM that hers is the hardest form of Brexit they are likely to get, and that voting down her deal risks no Brexit at all.
This group first made its presence felt on Monday in the Commons where several Tory MPs who previously rejected the withdrawal agreement suggested they could vote for it in January.
„I can tell you this – it certainly isn’t for all the women in the ERG – all the women have put their letters in.“
She speculated that there were around 46 letters of no confidence in, two shy of the number needed to force a vote in Mrs May’s leadership, and added: „I know of key people holding their letters back.“
You can say anything you like about the dim, teeming millions who voted Leave, and about the evil demagogues who made us do it, because of course we’re so fantastically stupid that we cannot think for ourselves. You can call them ‘low-information’. You can say they think with their ‘lizard brains’, as the New Statesman did. Slimy sub-humans! You can say they emerged from the ‘sewers’ (Nick Cohen) and that they will hopefully die soon (Ian McEwan). You can call them thick, ignorant, racist, deluded, fat (one study says Leave voters were of course higher in areas with high levels of obesity. Corpulent plebs.)
Ms Dorries added: „MPs will think to themselves, ‚If I vote to keep the prime minister in place she’s going to be there for the next 12 months when anything could happen, is that what I want?‘ And I think most MPs will vote ’no‘.“
She defended her description of the Brexit deal as leaving the UK as „slaves“ to the EU.
„I would call us a vassal state, an empty state, I’d call it serfdom, it’s appalling,“ Ms Dorries said.
He also calls on his Brexiteer Cabinet colleagues to resign.

Andrew Bridgen on Sky News: „We’ll be in a worse situation, we’ll be a vassal state.“
Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen was heckled after saying the prime minister was ‚dancing‘ to the tune of the EU.
THERESA May has summoned her Cabinet to consider a draft Brexit deal following a breakthrough in negotiations.
„I voted last night knowing that two thirds of Labour constituencies in the country voted to leave.
„One reason for that was that people in Westminster and Whitehall and in elite groups don’t wish to listen to them.
„I wanted to make sure that those two thirds of Labour constituencies had a voice.“
The veteran MP has angered some of his Merseyside Labour colleagues after also voting to help hard-line Tories like Jacob Rees Mogg score a decisive victory preventing the UK from joining the EU’s VAT regime.
NORTHERN Ireland would become a “protectorate” of an unaccountable EU if the backstop was introduced, the leader of the Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) has warned. Robin Swann said unionists who voted Remain did not do so because they wanted to leave the UK and it was “dishonest and deceitful” to portray them as such.
Baker is forcing the prime minister to choose between the integrity of the UK and a negotiated Brexit.
This is her worst nightmare.
What the leading Brexiter, Baker – who organises the European Research Group of Tory MPs – is doing more precisely is making it impossible for the backstop to be introduced without the approval of the Northern Ireland Assembly.
The PM told European leaders she would consider an extension to the Brexit transition period, but Brexiteers reacted immediately with fury
The Tory backbencher said the UK’s departure has left the bloc fighting for “sheer survival” with the very future of the European project at stake.
He said granting Britain any special exceptions could “open Pandora’s Box” and embolden disgruntled member states like Hungary and Poland to make similar demands.
THERESA May risked infuriating Tory Brexiteers this evening by opening talks with the EU on extending Britain’s transition out of the bloc by at least another year.
