The prospect of a No Deal Brexit is becoming more likely as the clock ticks down towards 29th March 2019 and the European Union refuse to make any substantial changes to Theresa May’s rejected the deal.

In an interesting piece for the Huffington Post, Paul Waugh says that “internal party polling and warnings from her Chief Whip and Party Chairman have forced her to ‘think the unthinkable'”.
His tweet is even clearer: “Theresa May is now seriously contemplating a No Deal Brexit.”
Private polls apparently reflect what we’ve seen in numerous public versions, Brits now just want out: “The message from a large chunk of Leave voters is that they want a ‘clean Brexit’.”
Waugh also quotes a source as saying of Brexiteer MPs: “She’s been told – ‘You need to understand prime minister, it’s very simple maths – the ERG (European Research Group) will fuck you, fuck the Conservative Party and they will throw themselves over a cliff. Your Remainer colleagues will not’. It’s who’s got the biggest balls.”
ITV’s Robert Peston has also given his assessment: “Most MPs tell me they believe a No Deal Brexit is a remote prospect.
“They are wrong.
“I would argue it is the most likely outcome – unless evasive action is taken much sooner than anyone expects.”
Time and time again, Theresa May has insisted that she will deliver Brexit on time, come the 29th March. To fail in that duty now would damage public trust massively and mean the return of Nigel Farage with the new Brexit Party.
With Brussels still refusing to make any meaningful changes to her heavily rejected deal, the UK must be prepared to walk away. No Deal is still better than a bad deal and the UK can thrive after a WTO Brexit that delivers full independence.
