So the UK Parliament is no nearer a resolution on Brexit. Is anyone surprised? Having voted against NO Deal, they then rejected a solution which would have seen Article 50 revoked in the event that no other decision could be reached – and they rejected it. That was the Bain principle at work there, although in fairness, Theresa May would probably have ignored the indicative vote even if it had been passed unanimously.

Which leaves us, as I’ve long feared and expected, facing a hard Brexit in ten days.

It must be said that Nicola Sturgeon has tried hard to save the UK from itself, but the patient has almost expired and only a miracle will resuscitate it now. IndyRef2 is the only viable solution for Scotland. The big question is whether she has left it too late.
