Here's an incredibly powerful article by the Guardian. It reports that the Unite chief believes there will be an immediate post-Brexit General Election if the PM fails to reach a deal with the EU.

I never thought that I’d agree with Len McCluskey but for me, he’s spot-on.

People didn’t vote to crash out of the EU without a deal. May and the Conservative Party despite what they’re saying in public must recognize that Len McCluskey is right.

Perhaps May and her Brexit Ministers think their outfoxing their European partners by threatening to walk away from the EU? Is it a bluff or will the Conservatives cave  to stay in power? Perhaps, the fear-mongering is part of a soften-up up of both parliament & UK public to make them thankful of any deal that May can achieve?

Thoughts?

Here's a reflective article in the Bagehot column of the Economist. It argues that the centenary of the October revolution is a good time to reflect on Labour’s leadership.

With Theresa May‘s government likely to make a disasterous mess of Brexit, the chances of a Far Left governmnt in the UK are very probable.

On top of the Brexit fallout, a Far Left Labour government would trigger enormous economic uncertainty both at the personal and corporate level.

Any thoughts on how UK politics became so polarized?
