I think it is obvious that, with the exception of a few extremely right-wing libertarians and, possibly, Jeremy Corbyn, not one of our members of Parliament wants to leave the E.U., not even Boris Johnson if the truth be told. What we are witnessing are increasingly desperate stalling measures as our representatives try to stave off what they really do not want to happen but without appearing to put two fingers up to fifty-two percent of the nation's adult population (at least, the ones who voted in the referendum).
It is time for them all to stop all this humbug and tell the truth. Then they should make the simple choice as to whether to stay in the E.U. or leave it. There is no point in them talking about the terms and conditions until this decision has been made, unambiguously and once and for all.
